What an ugly gimmicky PSU. Why doesn't it use black or grey sleeving? Being able to change LED color is pointless when the case and sleeving doesn't go nicely with most of the RGB scale.

Kinda pointless if the RGB will most likely be face down in 98% of the cases out there making it non visible. The only way to appreciate this RGB will be to have a clear sides to let the RGB shine through or install it in the top of a case.

Thermaltake has a bad habit of making some nasty looking cables.
Also, in an attempt to make you see the (downward facing most of the time) fan, the grill extends down the side a bit. Pointless, trying to show off a gimmick, and possibly bad for airflow.
Lastly, it only scored a 9 from jonnyguru, for nearly 400 dollars... For that price you can get a 1600w leadex platform.

For an article talking about a green psu, shouldnt it have something about efficiency in it?
Well, it was mentioned that it was 80+ Titanium, looking at the 80+ certification ratings, that's pretty damn good. 94% efficient at 50% power draw, above 90% for everything from 10-100% ... That's not a lot of waste heat.

Jonnyguru reviewed this already a week ago about. It was pretty good, but TBH has poor cables in terms of asthetics. Here is the review http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=458

Basically, it could be better. 12V rail has 39mv ripple, which is still good, but for a $370 unit... Cables could be longer, too. However, the software is actually very good, and better than Corsair's HX software.
