    As above...was looking to buy one but its nowhere to be found. I heard these were the best, damn shame that aint on here anymore :(

    Or is there anything better?

    You aren't blind(or at least not on this topic ;)) there aren't any new OCZ PSUs on OcUK, you could look to Enermax or Tagan(modular) or Seasonic(not modular but consistently rated as one of the best).

    I just want the best money can buy. My current enermax (3 years old) fluctuates like crazy.

    Cheers

    well i would say the enermax liberty's with modular are ment to be very good, the seasonics are also good.

    Antec Phantom 500 is very good + totally silent + acts as a giant heatsink within the case further absorbing case heat to lower temps even more.

    Whats all this about "modular" and "non modular"? So Seasonic is the best I can buy for my money?

    Modular PSUs allow you to plug in (to the PSU) the cables you need, and leave out the ones you don't.
    It helps keep the case tidier, and can help with the airflow through the case.

    The BEST PSU is the Power and PC 510W PSU. Loud, but the BEST reasonable psu. Hard to get hold of.

    The second best is the FSP Sparkle 600/700W, coming in a close third its the Seasonic S12 600W.

    The P&PC is very expensive though - and like you say loud. You can buy "reasonable" PSU's for less, which are quiet or silent, like the ones recommended above - they aren't about to cave in on you because they aren't P&PC!

    The seasonic looked good, but I like the sound of a modular PSU. Recommendations?

    Antec Phantom 500 has 82% efficiency. 86% for the US model!

    Another vote for the Power and PC 510w SLI, You can specify an option for them to swap the fan out for a quieter version. No ticking or clicking from this PSU.
