Silverstone is pretty quality. I buy their PSUs exclusively and recommend them to my friends.

Decent review but could be better.

Just "eyeballing" the modular connectors using the Hi-Res pictures on Silverstone's own web site suggests some of the modular cables can be plugged into connectors they are not meant to be connnected to.

Why would anyone do this? Hey! It happens. People get rushed to play with "the new toy" or they don't look carefully at the power supply in a dark PC case or "tightly packed Pc case" and end up forcing the cable into the wrong connector while cursing out the "bleeping computer".

Next, this power unit has cables with "those obsolete connectors" on them. What do I mean? Those obsolete 4-pin floppy power connectors. It is hard to tell from the pictures here and on Silverstone's web site if "those obsolete connectors" are on their own modular cable or attached to the end of some other cable.

Finally, like another commenter once pointed out here a few weeks ago. "Is it Haswell certified?"

Hey Lee! Step up your product reviewing game. This review seemed like too much of a "softball" that was tossed at Silverstone. Maybe some "investigative journalist" shhould look into the potential relationship between Silverstone, PCP and Lee? Just sayin....

ATX or peripheral power cannot be plugged into PCIe power (which is blue) due to the connecter being different and its color coded anyway. Cables on the end of the psu are hardly the only thing that can be plugged into something wrong if you are stupid and force it so its really a non issue.

If you looked at the pictures on the review its obvious that 4 pin floppy is attached to each of the molex harnesses.

Almost all of silverstones PSUs were stated as haswell certified back when that news ware relevent. It would be incredibly stupid if they were to go backwards. If you actually read the review and looked at the voltage charts provided and were aware of the of the conditions of haswell compatability (No 12V rail running out of spec) which this PSU is well within you might realise that this isnt even as issue.

In answer to your question about the possibility of accidentally plugging one of the modular cables into a connector it was not intended for, please see the edits I added to page 3 and page 6. Thanks for pointing this out.
