3. Use it to store the stock fans that arrived with all your PC components that you can't bring yourself to throw away.

4. Use it to store component instructions (I actually do use my one for this)

5. Use it to store random lists.... of which this really is one

Tom's video and James' written has nailed it again, awesome job team OC3D!

other than the colored wires under the cable braid.. it's a Corsair PSU with strength, stamina,
and style.

gaining a pretty good collection of velour PSU bags and felt Crown Royal bags.. myself

This is such a sickener. I bought my HX 850 only two months ago. And then they revamp it :/

Ah, it's always the way.
You do still have a great PSU though, so it's not the end of the world.
Also; welcome to the forums

That is true I wonder how much reworking was actually put in to push it up to 80+ gold?

And thank you! I have been reading threads here for years so I said I might as well register
