    Wow, even with the $40 discount, this is VERY pricey for a 600W+ PSU. I wonder if it's made by a good manufacturer...

    Edit: This is a rebranded PSU of mine. They changed the box, the sticker, paint on the PSU shell, and the little gold logo on the fan grill.

    Link for comparison: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194027

    And I never liked the name of the PSUs either. Their last "fire PSU" lived up to its name and set systems on fire left and right. This one shouldn't though.

    Interesting to say the least. Way too expensive though

    lol, keep away from it. Sapphire Support Forums are completely against it so if what they say is true, its a crappy PSU.

    I had no idea Sapphire made PSU's... which is a good reason for me to stay away from it.

    They are Enermax OEM so it should be OK.
