The cables were long enough to route easily and the 8pin 12v aux was just long enough to route round the back of the motherboard tray and connect on the top of the motherboard. If your 12v aux is further down the board and you still want to route it up the back of the motherboard tray, you will be out of luck. Of course, all this is only applicable if your case mounts PSU’s at the bottom, so if you’ve got a regular top mounted case, you will be fine. (Editor’s note: Or you can run it up the gap left under the cards near rear pci plate)
A close-up shot of the PSU in its new home, the blue is definitely a striking feature. I had to shove all of the unused cables at the front of the case to keep things tidy.

On review: PC Power & Cooling power supply
Readings were taken of all the voltage rails at Idle and Load. To ensure full load the PC was set running with the following applications: ORTHOS, Adaware’s smart scan, and running the 3d mode on ATI Tool. This put load on pretty every much component in the computer. All voltage readings were taken with a digital multimeter.
Here are the results of our testing
The PSU does really well with keeping a stable voltage output; the 12.00v rail is very tightly regulated and is practically bang on where the 12v it should be. The 5v and 3.3v are pretty close too and only dip 0.01v under load.
