    Love people picking PSUs for their aesthetic qualities. Cases I can understand... PSUs... nooo.

    Imagine Paying that for Blue Neon lights and then it was DOA and had to be sent back gutted, or worse it fried all your components.

    Of course, that's assuming HM Customs manages to pick up the parcel, quite frequently orders from the US & such often miss out on customs duty

    Was this research just from the product's own advert in buy.com?

    It seems like quite a low-range PSU in terms of power - only delivering 34A over the 12v lines - I wouldn't like to run an 8800 or x1950xtx off it.

    Efficiency is terrible too - 72%. You should be looking for over 80%, otherwise you're just running a little heater in there.

    The cabling inside the unit looks very bad as well - what's the point of having all these vents etc if the inside of the unit is just full of junk?

    no lol didn't notice that on the buy description. The efficiency peaks at 81% so should on average be around 76% which I although not the best is ok by my standards. it has dual rails which is always good and my current psu only does 35A max on the 12V http://www.antec.com/specs/TPII430_spe.html so won't be too different just more wattage which in turn as I am using only 400W will in turn cause it to have less overuse and ultimately last longer. I know amps are the main thing when it comes to psu's but is it not true what I said about buying a higher wattage to stop strain???

    I was going to open up the psu and add some LED's I will just do a little bit of wire tidying whilst I am in there
