For SLI config in my hobo-gamer 12/11/2012

Let it be known, I literally just got this in my machine...
Tons of cables, like everyone is saying. The first thing I thought when I busted it out was, "Yo dawg I heard you liked SATA connectors so I put some SATA connectors on your SATA connectors..." This is kind of a con if you have a midtower like I do / if you don't have like 2 optical drives and a raid config... But you can't knock it for having too many cables and I just stuffed them into my empty drive bays.
Also, it has high current on the 12v rails which is necessary for these newer graphics cards, especially if you want to overclock. It has a lot of current for a PSU at this voltage.
I'm kind of knit picking, but I think when it says it has four 12v rails, it really means it has two with two six pin connectors each for a total of four six pin connectors with a grand total of 80 amps not 160. Practically, I can't see what you would use four 12v connector with 40 amps each for anyway, unless you're running quad SLI, in which case you better see your way over to a 1000 watt monster. The funny thing is that you could probably run a pretty stable quad SLI config if this had 250 more watts to it. I was probably naive to think it had 160 amps coming through it...
This is why I knocked off the one egg. It's not really about how it's effecting my experience as an end user, it's just that it upsets me when I'm misled by a vendor. It might be my own misunderstanding, but I don't think so.
Full disclosure: I actually haven't gotten my SLI config running yet, but if I have problems I swear I will come edit this. Hope to run two GTX 560's. on my 2 year old ASUS board.
