    nice review. I love that you look at psu products with a more critical and quantitative eye than most reviewers. It is highly appreciated and respected by those of us who understand the need for such minute details. bravo

    Great review W1zz. that is a sexy PSU, but I still prefer the Power Switch. I love the auto voltage senser. Thanks man.

    If I am turning my computer off for long periods of time, I just use the switch on the surge protector. That way my computer, LCD, speakers, and TV all go totally off. So a switch on the power supply doesn't really matter, IMO.

    I've never had a problem, even with having the computer completely disconnected from power for days on end. That is why there is a CMOS battery on every motherboard.

    Someones not thinking straight. This PSU looks quite value packed... I reckon it would have been 900% better if they used two fans and not one, look, the dual PCB design rules out any suggestions for one 120mm fan. However I sadly miss the power switch.. why did they exclude it? I just have one thing that I hate about it... (as well as mine).... ... wait for it...


    Too many cables and no modular cables :shadedshu Try one of these in an antec 900!

    maybe they didnt want it to be bigger than it already was (hence only one fan)
    ive heard that these 1kw units dont fit too well in quite a few cases

    This one, unlike most other 1kW PSUs, seems like it is normal sized. Most of them are longer and stick further out into the case, which is a problem for a lot of Thermaltake cases and others that place the front I/O ports on top of the case.
