    I like the color. I like knowing its crossfire quad compatible. this way, there is no mistake. I didnt know the OLD QUAD 750 had the 8 pin outputs on them. eitherway, spiffy psu.

    psh.

    It'll out perform anything else.

    Who cares?

    Anyone using Quad SLI/Xfire probably isn't worried about a red component.

    Especially considering most of the cases that would house such a monster, hide the psu. ;)

    Why such negitivity against it ?... And whot i am not seeing is it 40c >100,000. Then again my CoolMax CXI 600w does not even do 12v correctly it's more like 11v and less when gaming :(.

    Does not seem like it can get enough air to as most of the air vents look blocked.

    From what I can see....that PSU to me looks to run VERY hot. im not sure about the lower end models but as far as i know it has just 1 80MM or 90MM fan.....

    & if u are drawing a tremendous amount of wattage from the PSU's that fan is either going to break or the PSU is going to fly off like a jet with an afterburner. anyway u look at it, its going to be pretty noisy

    I've got a silencer 610.


    Its fine.

    My antec is louder.

    People have just been brainwashed by PSU's that have to have multiple fans.

    PCP&C design their psus in such a way that heat isnt an issue. Quiet efficient cooling is another plus when dealing with them. TOP QUALITY components and no cooling issues.

    Overall PSU design looks ok, they should of fitted another fan thouh, utilising the proven "pull & push" system.

    Its not the Issue with multiple fans I assure you. my tagan has 1 big 120MM at the bottom but u dont see me complaining about it being just 1 fan.

    either PSU manufactuering has been stepped up to a point where they now use components that dont heat up that much at all?

    but it still seems a little weird to have 1 80/90MM fan only on the back specially when your going to be drawing so much power from it to run your quad SLi's. 5Ghz Cpu's, water cooling & whatever else you can rig up to your pc.

    Im just saying because even tho my tagan has a 120MM on the bottom the PSU still gets pretty hot time to time & my room is pretty chill'd out most of the time. its cold but not too cold if u get what i mean.

    Trust me, its fine.

    PCP&C knows what they're doing. ;)

    My 610 doesn't even get warm. Its a single fan.
    Its not the biggest load in the world, but PCP&C would never put their name on a dud power supply.

    I purchased this psu for my build thinking omg! the best! well the crossfire 750 model had a bad nasty problem with it frying within hours or days of having it. A large bad batch i would say. I was one of them that got it, but i rma'ed for a refund and got the turbo 860watt series to be safe. Just a little FYI if yours blows up.
