I just realised with the psu having 45 degree angle edges this means that when installed in the 600T, you now have an easy way of routing the front panel audio connector and is a big help when cable managing

Tom, thank you for pointing out the two pevs i get when using "bi-directional" power supplies.

the first is the cable bundle on both modualr and non-modular are deffo the wrong end. fan

up shortens the terminations by 60-70mm. which in some cases is needed without the use of

extensions

second would be please make the scripts, decals or printing ledigable when intalled in a

particular way. a lot of todays rigs have some major cash dropped into them and on a photo

shoot, emblems or signage is in-your-face wrong.

the ability to custom color co-ordinate your components is a great feature. and to have a

straight-laced company like corsair to lead in this area is a big relief, that they are not settling

to just pump-out pieces. hopefully this will move to other areas of the PC market.

motherboard customization would be a great place as some have moved to a neutral color PCB

maybe this will trend to better looking rigs with minimal modding skills.

I agree with the cabling coming out the wrong side I have the 500r which isn't really a tall case and the GS700w (v1) and I could barely reach the CPU power on the motherboard, I had to route it through the back of the motherboard. It would've been nicer if the cables came out the other side. It also would've been nice if the braiding was a little nicer.

Looking a long time a psu for my old rig, this one seems really good value but cant find at any online shop, only the old version. Anyone knows which retailer is having in stock at the moment? I found at scan but still waiting stock.
Other question: Is This PSU will be ok for my config? (I72600k at 4.6 and 570gtx) thinking to put my 5yo enermax850 to my old rig and the gs in my new one. Just dont like is not modular.
