    Pretty damm impressed with the packing quality and overall feel of the PSU
    Only con i'd have about the PSU would be the stiffness of the cords.
    Pretty much no change in cabling on the front side but at the back i lost about half the cables from the non modulair PSU. (like 4 cords of unused peripherals being not in the way now)
    Still going to tidy stuff up more but that happens once the watercooling will be installed to so i can better see what's actually the best solution.

    Damn that Seasonic PSU is sexy! Makes me want to build a system with black and gold theme rather then the typical, boring, black/redd :3

    The only other gold thing I can think of would be an Asus Z87 motherboard.

    I don't think there is anything sexier in terms of PSUs than a 1.2kW Seasonic. In addition, any PC requiring such a PSU has to be sexy. Even if it's tri-SLI fermi.

    Silver arrow is yellow-brownish isn't it. Not gold though, but you'd probably go for watercooling anyways.

    Id probably would go with the Dominators for a Black/Gold build or Vengeance Pros (yellow/goldish and silver mix).

    Build is a bit different these days as I'm not water cooling my 680s, but with all the fans maxed out it is a bit noisy. I usually have the fans turned about half way and then all I hear are the gpus. I also only wear headphones so it doesn't really matter.

    Um, Dual, do you realize those GPUs are in fact not in SLI mode in those pictures? >_>

    If you're referring to the SLI bridge, I put that on after I took the pics, so it's working fine

    Yup, order placed, can't wait!
