Stick with a more reliable brand such as Antec, Enermax, OCZ

I will go against their comments because i actualy have one. It is an excelent PSU and the cables that come w/ it are UV reactive I have both Antec and an Ultra X-Connect and i went w/ the X-connect. I have the first generation and i have nothing bad to say about it. Very nice PSU.

Theres Always a few good Power supplies in a bad bunch.

I would never go with an X-connect only Because of their cheap components, but Hey its not my money now is it.
