I like the white scheme - black inside, white details, white fan blades even.
Tell me, how is the noise level on that CPU fan?

AData are not bad PSU.
Thanks.

The Adata Horus psu , CWT \Channel Well Tech\ developed for internal use, such use of smaller Corsair HX and TX models as well.
I'm not referring to it being the weak spot due to weak quality. But rather esthetically. Its a grey box with colored wires coming from it, in an otherwise neatly themed, sleeved and classy environment.
