Hey guys.  We are getting ready to build to redundant servers with Asus P4P800-VM motherboards and 3.0ghz HT P4's.  I was wondering if you guys could suggest a couple of power supplies that would work well with this setup, if possible I would like to keep them to around $60-70 per supply.  Also, is there any problem with running HyperThreading on win2k server?  Thanks guys.

Honestly, there really isn't anything special you need for those servers when it comes to the power supply. Just stick with a brand name for reliability. Even a 400W power supply should have no problem delivering all the power it needs.

We ordered some Chiefmax 450's a few weeks back for $13.88 each, and I've been amazed.  They've been running very clean with no hiccups whatsoever.  They're ATX/BTX and have all the connectors, including SATA.  I'm still getting over the shock.

Got 'em at http://3btech.net/24pinch45atx.html.

Oh, btw, they've lowered the price.  When we got 'em they were $13.88 each if you bought 10 or more.  Now they're $12.99 each if you do.

Wow! only $13.88 ... that is so cheap. And as said, I am interested with it as well.

I've tested all 10 of the ones we got.  They're all clean and stable.  Just for the heck of it, I severe load tested one of them, taking the 450w unit up to 680w of continuous output before it clipped and shut down.  I started at 400w and went up 40w at a time, holding each for 5 minutes, so it'd had plenty of load and opportunity to heat up before it clipped at 680w.

So far, I'm pretty impressed.
