Pros: The hybrid fan is a nice touch, and the fact that it's on a switch is even nicer. I'm going for a silent build so the hybrid fan was an absolute must. The 10Y warranty gives me peace of mind knowing that this PSU will probably be one of the LAST things I have to replace in this build; and with the fully modular construction I know I can go get custom cables made for my next build, if I need them to bring it to the next level.

Cons: The sheathing on the cables seems to be glued in place, and zip tied under the heatshrink. This is done up way too close to the connectors, and it was a struggle to get the connectors to lay where I wanted them, and that hole bundle is VERY stiff with the heatshrink, the zip tie, and the glue; to the point of being completely rigid. This made it very difficult to get the cables neat. Seasonic, next revision of your cables, please come up with a more flexible overwrap design; this is the only part of your PSU kit that was less than stellar

Overall Review: Typical great product from a respected brand. I was looking at other PSUs, and all the others in the running for my build were just rebadged Seasonic. So, between that, and the fact the others were out of stock at my retailer, I decided to just go to the source. I'm very happy. It's got a nice heft to it that conveys quality; it looks nice, it feels nice; and it's quiet. The only thing that I would change, to give it that last star is to bundle it with better designed cables.
