    Great review,

    n.b.:
    The "available here" link at the end isn't working
    Also you refer to the Asus cooler as a Zalman when you're looking at the guts.

    Really like the real world tests, perhaps the inclusion of a couple of the more popular synthetic tests might be appreciated by those who want to compare this system to their own.

    Just a thought.

    All that money and they can't cable the thing nicely

    Isn't that the same FSP psu that scan were selling for £30 a couple of weeks ago? Wonder if they bought them from scan?

    Oh and the cabling is a bit messy.

    We're still waiting for the link from PC Specialist. I'll have another look now.

    The 'Zalman' was supposed to be written like this, kind of intimating that it's pretty damn similar.
