Sounds great, I have heard so many different opinions on power supplies, I just can't seem to pick one.

What should I buy for good discharging? Just a Novak Smart Tray or MuchMore D-90?

Trinity makes the D-90. Much More makes the CTX-D. I personally would choose the Novak Smart Tray SE.
Get the Pyramid power supply, it is by far the best deal out there.

I dont think you can go wrong with the novak and that pyramid supply. I sold my old powersupply to get that one because i wanted something small and lite. IT can power up to 4 chargers at 5amps so for me it was perfect as i run 2 chargers and my comm lathe.

Integy has a zero-30 discharger thats kind of kool 30amp discharge individual cells but i think it takes it to zero wich not all cells agree with, although there was a mod out on this board that would make the cut off adjustable.

Hey man, don't look at me. I've had mine for 2 years and it's been perfect voltage has never dropped or spiked, nor has it cut out.

Got it, looks nice.. but hey, does your fan come on when the unit is powered up... or does it have to reach a certain temp?

I believe the fan is turned on at a certain temp, it's pretty quiet and hard to hear though.
