    That was far too straight faced for an OklahomaWolf review score.

    You've gotta divide by moose at some point.

    Generally BB longevity isn't much of an issue. Potentially making some bearing noise @very low rpm, when fan should otherwise be pretty much inaudible OTOH may be one.

    It's the standard Canadian equation of:
    Moose/SnowyDitch+ (Tim'sCoffee - winningcup)
    Intel i7-2600k with an XSPC Raystorm water block, 4x4GB Corsair Dominator, SLi Evga-GTX560Ti-448 FTWs, Asrock Extreme4 Gen3, Crucial M4 256GB SSD, Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD, powered by a Silverstone Strider+ 850 PSU in a Silverstone TJ-07BW case.
    I'm not buying EK GPU blocks ever again. (One GPU killed)

    I could agree but I still find the PCB underside very ugly (though probably penalized enough), and for the 10 on performance, while justifiable I still think a PSU worthy of a perfect score needs to return perfect 12v regulation (before anything else), and this didn't.

    Having just cleared Gold rating with maximum error tolrance, mediocre low level efficiency and the regulation.. That combined should knock off half a point on the performance.. I think it's a great product in all, but it doesn't deserve a top score in performance since it's not performing "tops".
