On the subject of aftermarket cooling, several companies make full coverage water blocks if you into that, I think Arctic Cooling is the only one to have an aftermarket air setup.

Arctic Cooling
Very nice, thank you.

Eagle eye.

AmuseMe for those money CP 850 is a bargain. One class over PC P&C Silencer, and in the same class as Antec Signature, Enermax Revo85+, Seasonic M12D or Corsair HX750/850. All are top notch PSU.

Yes I agree with him, GameXtream is a Fortron Epsilon plagued by ripple.
I speak about Antec CP 850 which is another animal (disregard efficiency on Hardware Secrets but keep the rest).
