Are all cables sleeve free. So cumbersome for MITX and collects dust to have 24 pin cable sleeved.

They can be enhanced even more with DSP. But it is nextgen. seasonic don't have it yet.

I've asked this elsewhere, but I'll ask you folks here too. What currently is the benefit of DSP. Is there really any performance benefit for the AX1200i over the X-1250? I'm not asking if it measures better. I mean will my computer, in any useful way, perform better with the AX1200i in it?

The true benefit of DSP will to be able to get better performance from lower cost designs. As it is now though it just makes PSU's more expensive. Also, I don't like adding software control where it isn't needed. It's just another layer of complexity. We have individual components throttling and adjusting voltages. We have Windows turning stuff on and off, up and down. Now we're going to have our PSU's also controlling system power usage. Since no 2 setups are exactly the same, I can just see more blue/black/green screens of death, problems recovering from sleep, video driver crashes, etc. because of it. All of this for 1/2% better regulation and 5mv less ripple.

Convert your Core i5 3570K to Core i7 3770K when powered by this PSU :D.

its your choice honestly no one is forcing you to get this component, this is where the rest of the market is headed to. Id honestly get a 750 W unit

I still say for trusted PSUs

Antec
Corsair
Enermax
PC Power and cooling (Not OCZ series)
Thermaltake (Yes they handle stuff pretty well ive noticed)
Seasonic
