Manyak: Doesn't that Automatically void whatever warranty it has? -be it 2yr, 5yr; Limited or Lifetime??
Even if you Ninja
the "Warranty void if removed" sticker! and something goes awry;
It's kinda hard to put the cables back on!
I mean I'm pretty damn good with a soldering iron- but, I'm not "Factory Robot" good
I suppose I'll keep the Ultra in this CM690 rig and use the CM for my next build! (don't hold your collective breaths)
I will just have to do a sum0n3 type wire cover and PSU faux-floor!

If you read the post: It's between the two PSUs I already own!
I was just putting out some "general opinion" feelers!"
Then why have an open poll with a closed mind? best of luck to you
The "Open Poll" was to find out the general consensus of opinion "which is more important to you: An efficient PSU or a modular one for a clean case
And yes I realize that there are some PSUs out there that are both efficient and
modular!-and I do appreciate the recomendations with a fully open mind!
But, that wasn't the question posed!
Cheers to you anyway!
[Edit] See, some people are saying efficiency influences them, others are stating that the warranty plays a factor, and others say "modular- schmodular"- this was the purpose of asking the question? to ellicit feedback and opinion!Edited by SpcCdr - 6/22/08 at 11:29am
