    single 12v rail seems a bit odd and the styling isnt for me really but it is nice to see something less generic looking

    Some people prefer a single rail so that their components definately have enough power, others like multiple rails so power isnt wasted.

    Personally I'm a big XFX fan and love their green/black styling. If this hits the right price point (i.e. cheaper than Corsair by 10%+) then I know where I'm getting my next PSUs from!

    For some reason the octagon-hole makes me think of Robocop.. OCP, anyone? - Actually I'm pretty sure its just me.

    Anyway, back on topic, I like the way it looks. Anything that is doesn't involve blue LEDs is a big + from me, as blue's been done to death already.

    With that said, I wouldn't grab one myself, I don't do windows, so looks are nothing to me.

    Yeah i can understand it on lower wattage PSUs for that reason but when you have all that power just seems to make sense to divide it up. Thats my opinion anyway.

    Ha, No not just you bud, I thought that too. Im a big Robocop fan (pun intended) lol

    Not keen on the styling personally although it would look great with the new DFI X58's if your into windowed cases and matching stuff.
