5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

Pros: This is a very well built power supply. Looks great and functions very well. i am very satisfied with the quality of cougar products. its very quiet also i can barely hear it running.

the molex and sata connectors are spaced kinda funny but thats not a big deal for me.

Cons: i wish it had one or two more molex connectors.
It smelled kinda funny when i unboxed it.

Other Thoughts: Buy it. hands down. great product!
