Looking a bit like Enermax PSU's....I hope the rails are strong, if so, they don't look too bad of a PSU and may sell well so long as the price is right. :)

I agree. Enermax-like and very attractively styled. Hopefully they're beefy and reliable enough to compete.

Don't worry about him, his only reply in this thread was a simple troll.....not unusual though. :nutkick:


I like the PSU and the design of it...it screams "Enermax" and that's in my view is a good thing. :toast:

I agree, its a very good design, it's mostly grey with a nice touch of orange to make it stand out a bit.

learn to typo less (you just told him to 'do' his mother, then a pimp emote)
learn not to troll
learn that other people have different tastes to you.

The color is reminescent to a Dodge Challenger. :respect: Considering I use their WinPower 550AB, this Cougar should be awesome.
