Seasonic S12II-430 for an HTPC
i was planning to build an HTPC using as much unused parts I have lying around as possible, but, as we say around here - wanted to do it as best as possible but it ended up as it always does. I found that while my ancient OCZ StealthXStream was packed away deep in the closet it developed a loud and annoying squeal. I'm afraid that it might die soon and take everything else along with it. I use Seasonic PSUs for some time now and couldn't be more satisfied so naturally I'm looking at one of their products: an S12II-430. It's pretty expensive for the wattage. What do you guys say? Overkill?
