I have an Ultra 500W PSU and It as a good 12V Rail w/ 25a, It costs less than the X-connect one and looks just as good and is made by the same company, Right now I'm running:

hardrive
2 optical
4 fans
9800
4 cathodes
Audigy Platinum

This PSU should be great for you!

That comment was quite un-nessesary, if I might say so myself. The capitol letters were an especially nice touch.

just bought this yesterday:

http://www.hotbean.com/w0023power560w.htm

can't go wrong with thermaltake. Woulda like a little higher 12+ rail thats why I almost went with the ultra cause it had 34 on the +12v, buuuut this no name 420w with a +15v rail has been handling my:

2 hard drives
2 CD-Roms
2-Cold Cathodes on front of case
2-Stacked 80mm fans one with LED's
One - rear - 80MM fan.

So yeah that thermaltake should handle all my needs plus the fact its got sleeved cables so that'll be nice. But yeah man oooh I just couldn't decide for a week wether to get thermaltake or Ultra....part of my decision was the Ultra fan grills looked to restrictive..more for 'looks' than function and I want good air actually moving through. Plus thermaltakes are meant and known for good efficiency...power correction and keeping cool. The ultra you can get the free sata cables with it after you order the product you contact the manufacturer but eh...the thermaltake already has it there although I don't even use SATA. When that PSU arrives I'm gonna have

2 Hard Drives
2 CD-Roms
2-Cold Cathodes
2-Stacked 80mm fans
1 - Rear - Vantec Tornado
1 - Coolermaster Jet Blowerfan for CPU
1 - Sunbeam Rheobus Fan Controller
1 - Top 120mm Fan for blowhole

22a should cover it =). Oh yeah plus it was the same price for an Ultra 500w or a Thermaltake 560w, so I wanted the extra wattage... and I don't even have THAT much compared to some people so that thing should easily be able to handle all that.

hmm.. i talked to a guy from frozencpu.com and he said that this x-connect is selling like hot cakes and he's waiting for the blue ones to get in and he'll get one for his computer which is all decked out with lights... I think i'm going to give it a shot =)
