With a street price of around $180 (if you can find it in your country), the Cougar SX S700 is in the most expensive upper-third of this roundup. As expected, it comes well-packaged. With premium materials and an interesting orange/red underside, the Cougar SX S700 is a real treat both to the touch and for the eye. This goes for the well-constructed modular and round cables as well. Only the ATX, PCIe, and CPU cables are hard-wired.
When it comes to cable length and connectivity, the Cougar SX S700 is rather generous with its eight SATA and four PCIe cables. The PSU is both Nvidia SLI-ready and AMD CrossFire-certified in case you want to use multiple graphics cards. The Cougar SX S700 has four dedicated +12 V rails available, two of which provide up to 20 or 24 A.

FLanighanWhy not Corsair? I jizz at my tx850w
The article doesn't appear to measure noise from during switching and how much noise is introduced to the CPU and bus.
Anyway, it will be a cold day in hell before anyone gets me to switch out my Silverstone 1500 Watt PSU.
I call BS. I could run your setup with my PC power & cooling 750w unit.
