    100% modular is a selling point for sure. my current PSU is a mess, I hate it. need to get a new one later this year with a new coolermaster case.

    looks good. I bought a new corsair PSU last month, 750W. I felt 750W was safer than 650W as I might move to two 6970’s next year. Already have one. 650W is pretty much borderline as I know you should really be aiming for 40-70% of capacity under load. not 80-100%

    good all round design (if nothing out of the ordinary), nice select of caps too.

    Nice price.

    Its ok, some cheaper PSUs for the price, although you do pay more for modular.
