80% efficiency is very far from 80 plus gold standard.

What's so special about dual 12v rails in a low-end PSU that needs to be advertised:wtf:
You have to make boring thing look interesting. It's the same as car makers placing "windscreen wipers" and "3 point seatbelts" on car specs lists. I didn't know a car can come without any windscreen wipers and that i just might get a full racing harness in a basic model Hyundai or Dacia. Apparently you never know if they have to list stuff like that...

When did HEC change their name to Cougar? I remember HEC had a Cougar-line of power supplies but I didn't expect them to adopt the name for all the products.
