Pros: Don't let the picture fool you - these are not matte orange, they are instead a metallic orange/bronze. I was worried they looked too "gamer" in the pictures but bought on price anyway; happily they are in reality very stylish and professional-looking.

Pros: Amazingly impressed by this power supply. That's in line with what I read: Corsair is one of a few companies making great supplies.
The first time I turned this on I had to do a double-take -- the fan was turning but it was whisper quiet. There is a tiny audible hum, but that's it. And the cables and case look high quality and stylish.
Cons: The price. It had dropped due to a sale down near a 430W Bronze non-modular from the same brand, making this one a screaming deal in my mind. I would no doubt have been happy with the cheaper one, but with the Gold supply the computer will run cooler and therefore quieter while saving money. Not a cheap PSU, and you get what you pay for.
Last, apparently a "splittable" 8 pin CPU connector is a feature of many Corsairs, but it would be nice if that were documented on or near the product, to help first-time builders. My motherboard has a 4 pin connector and I spent a little time fretting that I'd bought an incompatible supply.
