    What's with the 5 plugs on the back of the 750w?

    They look like s-video sockets... ???

    Power hub. Charge your iPod, phone, warm your coffee, etc., even while the machine is off (but connected to the mains).

    Well it's about damn time! My stupid computer has only been able to keep my coffee lukewarm, and even then only when I rest my mug inside the case. It's a pain to have to remove the case side, take a sip, put the mug back in, and put the case side back on every 5 minutes.

    With features like that, I'll finally be able to patch all the holes in my walls that have power outlets sticking out of them!

    Thank you Spire!

    Dunno about that "Aimed squarely at the gaming community". the 750W only comes with 2x6pin, no 8pin or 6+2 pin.

    Are they modular? If so maybe they can offer 6+2 pin connectors as well?

    "USB mug warmer not included."


    ^
    Epic fail XD

    We where talking about the weird connectors on the PSU, making the mug warmer USB would make them useless.

    so it comes with 5 adapterss to go from mini-din to usb? so why not just have 5 usb ports on the back? or is there some use for these "mini-din" ports?

    did anybody else see the logo at http://www.spirecoolers.com/main/product_detail.asp?ProdID=827 that says "True Power 100% certified"? I know that up top, here, it says 80+ certified, or something..... but is 100% possible?

    They just mean they have certified that it actually makes the advertised power.


    USB would be good if there was some compelling use for it, how many people have their PC off when wanting to charge their MP3 or the like, and or couldn't afford a $9 wall unit to USB to take anywhere? Also, how many more wires do we need behind the PC, power, DVI, audio, NIC, Mouse, KB, Printer, momo, and now five more? A card reader makes just as much sence to put back there, and or even better, network through your power lines using your PSU. That would be a feature to list, not a freaking USB DIN cable to fall out when you pull it to try and plug more crap in.

    Spire power supplies are manufactured by Topower I think.
