Nice little idea, but I think maybe they should of investigated into some other form of advanced technology (lol).

The thing is, if companies made their power supplies to a high standard, why would there be any need for the LED. I suppose it's good to know if it's actually your mobo.

Just another not-needed feature, in my opinion anyway.

I've been reasonably impressed with the toughpower series (I trust one with my rig) but even so, I don't need to know this kind of stuff.

FanDelayCool is a brand new feature that ensures the PSU is completely and thoroughly cooled after you shut down your PC.
I'm almost certain another PSU manufacture has implemented this before now, quite some ago aswell. So thats not new at all.

Anyways, the LED's are a pretty good idea I reckon, although i'm not sure if they are needed in the market these PSU's will be aimed at (overclockers and gamers know the reason their PC will shutdown randomly is through a dodgy overclock).

EDIT:

PS

Note to Thermaltake; Get a better video guy, that was shockingly bad to watch.

Yes, this video was so bad I actually dragged the timer because the text was going at the speed of ... Well... Slow.

Personally I think this is not required. Come on... LED's on a psu? You'll have to crawl under your desk to check the LEDs which have already shut down by then because their power has álso been cut when the PC shut down.
