Bah! They're so ugly though...and they're not modular.

When will someone make a modular psu that is functional, looks good, and won't make you have to sell the farm to get it?

There is only one Decent PSU that is modular and looks good, and that is the Hiper type R 580w - And its Briitish. (I own it, it looks like a sapphire, couldn't beat it.) http://www.frozencpu.com/scan/se=Pow...nu_search.html

Yeah, that was another one that I was looking at....xoxide sells it too, which is good. How quiet is it?

STE: Yes, it always seems as though it has to be this way.

I have 30db fans in my PC, so I can't really judge, but when the PC shuts down the rear PSU fan stays on to cool the PC, and it is whisper quiet.

i also have the Hiper Type-R 580 watt modular PSU, and it is as quiet as anything, you actually have to put ur ear rite up to it to hear a slight hum. VERY quiet and it runs my X1900XT fantastically. Great price and looks too!
