Is this a good power supply?
I was looking at building a tier 5 build with the tier 6 mobo, (in case I wanted to get a gpu in sli) but the power supply is out of stock.

My question is: is this power supply good, and would anyone recommend it?

RE: Is this a good power supply?
Yes. It's a very good power supply, especially for the price.

I disagree. It's rated for 40C, any decent capacitors (i.e. Japanese based) will withstand 105C before efficiency degrades or damage is done.

The power supply got excellent reviews.

The Rosewill Hive is the same thing as the OCZ ZS, except modular and cheaper.

Funnily enough, they mention having "Japan Capacitors". Rated for 40C isn't ideal, but it's not a huge deal either.

However, crazylegoman, I recommend against considering two GTX 560 Ti in SLI, due to issues with micro-shuttering. Going with a high-end video card and selling/upgrading to another high-end video card after a few years is usually wiser than adding a second mid-range card.
