Cooler Master has engineered a great PSU which has a PCI-Express Power connector and can supply 12V from three rails. Most PSUs have only one or two. For the visual aspect there is a Watt Viewer which goes into a drive bay and automatically displays the current power consumption of your computer - without the need of additional software.

I like it

I have two of these units. It is a great unit, provides clean power and is very quiet. I don't use the Human Interface Deviece as I find it of little value other than to say it's cool. I only HATE the LED fan. It lights up my livingroom more than I like.

Question: How difficult would it be to replace that stupid LED fan with another that does not have an LED? Is it just plugged in or is it soldered?

Worst PSU I've ever came across! It's fine for about a year, but after that it degrades rapidly. I've had two of these PSU's and both suffered from high ripple/noise patterns which led up to destroying the hardware connected to it.
