Pros: Good Power (more than I'll ever need, probably)
Lot's of cables
Cons: Not modular, but I knew this beforehand, so no need to dock an egg for it.
Other Thoughts: This PSU is amazing. I just built my first gaming computer a couple months back, and PSUs were the scariest part about the entire build. I didn't know who to trust. Then, I stumbled upon Silverstone. I read many reviews on their PSUs stating how reliable they are and how well built they are. Everything I read is true. This thing is going strong almost three months without a hiccup.
Installation was a breeze. Pop it in the case, screw in everything, and attach the cables. Simple. The case I have allows me to put the extra cables in the front, where extra hard drives can go.
The only problem I had with this PSU was the CPU cable is quite short. If you want to route your cables to have a clean setup (who wouldn't?), then you'll probably need a CPU extension cable. I have a mid tower case, and even then, routing behind the mobo, the cable is about an inch too short. Luckily, my case actually came with a CPU extension cable, so I had no issues. Just beware for those of you with large cases, you'll probably need a cable.
