Pros:

Works equally well top or bottom mounted.

Enough SATA power connectors for my setup with 2 spare for expansion.

Dedicated 12v rail and 20 or 24 pin MOBO connection.

2x Graphics card power supplies which my GTX660ti requires.

Ample length for neat cable routing top mounted in my trusty and spacious Antex P160 case.

Partial Modular so I don't have unneeded cable runs cluttering up the inside.

Bronze rated and on testing actually seems to outperform some of the gold rated PSU's out there without the huge price tag.

Large135mm quiet fan provides good airflow. I now have a PSU with double the capacity and 2 case fans case and the whole thing is whisper quiet unless I'm Uber gaming (in which case I'm gonna have the volume up).

Spare cable bag is a nice touch.

Cons:

None so far.

Well you cannot actually remove the detachable 4 pin bit of the 20/24 pin MOBO connector and since my MOBO only needs the 20 pin version, i've got the extra 4 pin connector jammed against my DIMMS. ( I suppose I could strip the mesh back and cable tie it out of the way or use a 24 to 20 pin converter - but as these are bulky themselves there really isn't any point )

The HIVE is actually shorter but wider than my old PSU although some people have commented about having problems with certain case configurations.

It doesn't come with go-faster stripes.

Other Thoughts:

Have never used Rosewill before for PSU but this reviewed well and was at the price point I wanted. I have not been disappointed. We'll see how it stands up under use.
