    The 670W is just like the 620W and looks exactly the same on the outside:



    But there's an extra fixed cable. A blue Molex:



    This Molex is powered by an additional 50W PSU located just below the modular interface. This Molex is always on (like +5VSB) so the optical drive can be used for audio playback while the PC is off:

    Let me see if I have this down yet...

    The 40A on the 3.3V rail and the 50A on the 5V rail is a bad sign for a PSU in today's CPU/GPU heavy environment, right?

    It's-a gotta bigga fan. Might be a quiet 135, even though it's clear plastic.
    Too much 5V grunt. Bet is not efficient and cross-loads poorly.

    Will it come bundled with SkyHawk cases? Lian Li now has PSUs branded with their name but I don't think they can be had in a combo.

    It's not bad if supplemented with a healthy +12V rail.

    350W isn't actually what I would consider "healthy."

    But you could have a 600W PSU that can do 40A on the 3.3V, 50A on the 5V and 460W on the +12V and there'd be nothing wrong with that.

    You can't look at it as "too much power on the 3.3V and 5V." You need to look at it like "there isn't enough power on the +12V for a modern computer system."

    Ok, so I take the combined Amp rating (not double amp rating, I know that from your guide) on the 12V rails and multiply by 12 to get wattage, right? but this thing does have a peak for wattage on the 12V....

    Still, according to better informed sources a 350 watt total on the 12V is not necessarily healthy for a modern computer.

    How much is this retailing for?

    I guess if it's as quiet as they want it to believe, it would probably be better suited to a home theater PC, depending on size.

    One would have to define "healthy computer." 350W is still more than what my Quad-Father w/ two 8800GTX cards pulls from the wall @ 80% efficiency!

    What you have to look out for is when a power supply claims to be "700W" or something and only half, or less than half, of that is on the +12V rail.

    But you have to compare apples to apples. If you have a "600W" that has only 350W on the +12V rail in one hand, it's reasonable if the "500W" in the other hand is what you're comparing against if it also has 350W on the +12V rail.

    Ok, that makes sense.

    So this PSU is acceptable for it's range, right? I would be hesitant to plug any serious equipment into it since it has the small amount of power being loaded into the 12V rail.
