It's just to point a little mistake SKYMTL. At the end of "Cables and Connectors" page 5, "With this power supply we get two 6-pin PCI-E connectors and two 6+4 pin connectors"

Great review

It's great to see the PC P&C power supplies being offered at a competitive price while still carrying on their tradition of high end PSUs.

It'd be interesting to look historically at pricing to see if PC P&C's pricing has come down, or if other manufacturers' prices have gone up due to the inclusion of higher end components.

Wow. Great performance. I'm one of those deathly afraid of 80mm fans though.

Been using this power supply since last october... november? Don't remember.

Its quiet, powerful and works well..

Only gripe... lenght, cable layout and shoddy sleeving.

I got one recently (when my OCZ GameXtream 700W died). Works great and is extremely quiet. Its much quieter than my OCZ PSU which has a 120mm fan. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good quiet PSU in the 700-800W range.

Length of the PSU itself or the cables? Also, what didn't you like about the cable layout?

Length of the PSU; being a bit longer it doesn't work well in some cases like the CM 690.

Cables? Sleeving was done in a way that a few of mine have already pulled the mesh out.
I also don't like how the connectors are connected to the wires.. its hard to explain.

I know what you are talking about. Usually when the cable isn't sleeved to the end (like on the CPU connectors) it has a tendancy to pull out. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) none of them puled out for me or you would have DEFINATELY heard about it in the review so maybe they have changed the layout since then.
