    Excellent Review Jonny.

    Though, I wouldn't call the Minor rails that bad to be honest. 3% is still pretty good, all things considered. The 1200w big boys that have been reviewed showed around 2-3% Vreg on those rails as well.

    Either way, the biggest let down to this guy is the modular PCB/Cable count, and inability to turn the LEDs off.

    In bottom mounted, fan facing down case, LED lightning is pretty much irrelevant.

    The fan LED can be turned off.. the modular panel LEDs are the issue here

    Even considering the +3.3V and +5V combined is only 120W? Most units are 150W+ on these rails. It's too easy to implement a DC to DC VRM solution on the non-primary rails and then slap on the label whatever you find the acceptable regulation to be.

    Not bad, but expensive as you say.

    Note: Typo in the end of the review in the URL that's supposed to point people to this thread.

    A couple more typos

    Page 2
    "We can either turn the fan off, or have it emit a blue light."
    I think you mean turn the LED off.

    Last page in the conclusion:
    "....(Japanese primary capacitors, sold polymer caps...."
    I'm guessing you meant solid.

    I still get a knee-jerk reaction when recommending Rosewill PSUs from a lot of people. With all the good reviews Super Flower is getting maybe Rosewill can make some headway in the PR department.
