But one has to wonder how a PSU could be labeled as "SLI ready" and not have enough connectors to do SLI properly...
Remember that SLI used to mean cards that would have only a 6 pin PCI-E connector on it and a lot of these SLI PSU's only have 2 x 6 PCI-E connector where a lot of higher end cards now have a 6 and a 8 connector and if you have a SLI system with these you then essentially need 2 more of those.

700W OCZ GameXStream power supply died after 1 week running off dual molex connectors. Coincidence? I think not. Luckily, nothing else got frazzled!

On to more power, and LESS cables! Going to upgrade to the Silent Pro M 850W - Cooler Master, for $97 new after rebate and uber price match on Memory Express. Always wanted a modular, so now I am quite excited and looking forward to real cable management!
