Pros: Modular, easy to set up.

Cons: Instructions are somewhat lacking

After upgrading to an FX-8150 and Asus Sabertooth 990FX motherboard and blowing out my 600 watt PSU I found myself in the market for something outstanding, and Corsair has delivered again.
This is one PSU that will see you through your power needs for some time. Extremely easy to set up, especially with the modular cabling, so you only install what you need and can seriously reduce the cable clutter. My only complaint was the instructions, which are almost non-existent. I did some guesswork getting some of the 12v cables plugged in for the motherboard, but apparently I guessed right as it's running. Cables come in a nice nylon bag, so storing unused cables is not a problem.
