    No price for the Aurum?
    And where can you get it?

    In Holland I payed 90 euro incl. shipping, for the 700 watt version without the modular cables (FSP Aurum 700). I have been very happy with mine (Computer: 5850*2, 10HD's, Q9550@3.6GHz, etc., etc.).

    UMM???

    FSP's products are almost allways in the "You-get-what-you-pay-for" class. This goes for the high-end as well as low end parts.

    Please consider that FSP has a huge range and DOES produce low-end (even if not "trash"-end) parts.

    To my experience, most of the time, they are either cheapest or on par with competition at a given price point. Though nobody does miracles for peanuts in the PSU business ...

    $155 is too expensive.
    I picked a Seasonic X-760 at Microcenter one months ago for $149.

    It's nitpicking, but I'm disliking the use of the by the way abbrevation.

    Is a full review upcomming? I'm having a bit hard time getting any solid information except for the numbers from this 'rushed' article.

    But on the other hand, I never say no to more content from Anandtech, it was worth the time reading it :).

    Can we finally compile all these PSU reviews into say the "Anandtech PSU Charts" so we can really compare the ones you review? Reply

    You can get a seasonic x750 gold on newegg right now for 166 shipped. It's a shame there are so few 100% modular psus with quality performance and conservative designs. Reply

    What use would a 100% modular PSU be? Everyone's going to use at least the 24 pin and CPU connectors, no reason to add cost making those detachable. Reply

    The flat modular cables look pretty nice! Reply

    Well, I like them more than the ones from Corsair since they have no real sleeving like FSP. Therefore Corsair uses a better design. Reply

    I've owned a couple of FSP power supplies. I've always thought of them as makers of high-quality but low-polish PSUs... stable voltages and no problem delivering their rated output, but noisy and inefficient, with unsleeved cables. Nice to see they're addressing those shortcomings.

    As a side note- Isn't it interesting how many companies are headquartered in Taiwan, enemy of China, with factories on the mainland?

    Taiwan is not an enemy, it's more like another interpretation of China (or what it could be). In addition Taiwan is just semi-independent. No reason for China to see their activities as provocations at the moment. Reply
