Pros: It looks cool. Obviously the ipower meter is awesome. It's the main reason I bought this and the reason you should purchase this as well. Temperatures and wattage are very useful.
Cons: This power supply is not without quite a few cons. First, I, nor a lot of people, need two 8 pin fixed cables. It was the only "extra". Second, I don't need 10 (exagerrating) sata cables on the same strand. I only really need one each for dvd and drive. There is literally a very long (about 12 inches) of extra cable dangling with several more unused sata connections. What's the hard of including different amounts of sata cables, giving the user an option. For as expensive as this supply is, I expect these things. Also, the meter only gives 2 fan settings. Low, and rediculously loud. The main reason I bought this was to control fan speed but I guess that isn't happening...
Other Thoughts: Decide whether of not you want the ipower meter and that will tell you whether you need this supply.
