Modularity is becoming more and more popular in power supplies. The placement of the individual connectors is intelligent. The hardest one to reach, when the PSU is installed in the case, is the ATX power connector, which you will probably never remove. The easiest to plug in and out are the drive connectors.

When switched on, the inside fan is lighting up blue.

The motherboard power connector is compatible with both ATX 20 pin and 24 pin. If you have an ATX 20 connector on your board, just do not plug in the additional plug.

Two cables to power PCI-Express video cards are included with the PSU. Since both ends of the cable have the same plug, each plug is labelled, where it goes.

The black paint is matte and does not take any fingerprints.

Thermaltake's 120mm add-on fan is way too noisy to be used in a normal PC environment - but it moves a lot of air.
