Any opinions based on actual use of either of these two?

Thanks

The Maxamps power supply is just two DPS-600PB power supplies in series. I bought mine for >$20 each.

Excellent information, thanks. So I could save about $100 if I do the wiring myself. Very tempting. I'll probably do it.

Today I went to the old server graveyard in my basement. We have some huges old servers down there, but I couldn't find any that had more than 300 watts, and only one of those.

Mine are almost finished, I'm just waiting on 10AWG wire to arrive.

Do you have desoldering equipment?

I have access, why, some big wires that need to be desoldered?

Just an annoyingly small pin header; using copper braid was a headache.

Here's what I've done with mine:

I saw your post awhile ago and while a very nice job, it is not at all necessary to do it this way. It all depends how clean you want the final PS to look. I used jumpers on the ribbon cable that was very easy. Here is a good thread to look at https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1581061

I have a Meanwell RSP-1500-24. Works great and no mods required.
