From the top of the range this PSU looks the bee’s knees. 80plus gold, high build quality, decent amount of connectors for a PSU of this size. It’s a great choice for those every day gaming rigs. The OC switch at the back will come in handy for those running a single card and the addition of the built in system fan controller is excellent. Top end PSUs come at a premium price, however I feel that this one is defiantly worth every penny. Value Award!!
