i have one last question.

what does this mean?

CPU 1.323v
CPU/NB 1.158v
cpu/vdda 2.527v
dram 1.574v
HT 1.217v
NB 1.118v
SB 1.111v
3.3V 3.312v
5V 5.059v
12V 12.158v


is 12v the limit and 12.158 means im exceeding the limit resulting in the psu degrading sooner rather than later?
No, the ATX spec has a range of acceptable voltage for the 12V and it is between 11.4 and 12.6V. Plus, what is measuring the 12V may have some variation as well.
thank you ;-)

soo, change of topic, those who are not bored with my constant questioning.

could you list a few top psu brands.

If I'd buy a new PSU then I'd choose in this order:

1) Enermax

2) Seasonic

3) Antec

First two actually make their own PSU's rather than rebadging.

Enermax

Here is a review site:

It is a bit technical but you can skip to the Conclusion and Scoring section.

Here are a few other reputable review sites:

In general for gaming it is better to have fewer rails and higher current - depending on how far you plan to go.
