    Nice marketing move from Fractal...... both are merely the same......

    Slightly tighter rails and reduced noise levels compared to its predecessor (apart from the fact that it includes a second 8-pin ATX cable that may be useful to some people).

    Cost of efficiency discussion discounts the need for cooling. It also discounts the variable rates that many pay for electricity.
    Like switching to LED bulbs, there are compounding advantages to efficiency. If everyone in a city uses a more KWH of electricity a year, there may be the need for increased generation capacity...leading to increased rates for all users.

    So, yeah it may only save you a limited amount of actual electricity cost initially, but if you make those "NOW" choices often enough....well you end up quickly back to BURNING OFF NATURAL GAS at the well... because it costs too much to capture it mentality.

    You mean....we should stop using a power supply ? :p

    Well.....cost of effiency....depends upon hours of usage vs geographic region vs hardware components... and so.......

    though...

    @ $150 this is a steal you're talking rm850 money and that's gold, not platinum. most platinum psus have been hovering near $200

    In the game load test, you highlighted the wrong PSU. ;)
