Yep very much like your SM550 mod. I only have them on the mesh panel but now that you mention it putting them on the solid panel on the other side of the case would make things nice and symmetrical. The case sits on a shelf above my desk with the mesh panel facing me. I hardly notice the gap and temps are very good under gaming loads and I'm still at stock settings on the CPU.

I'm quite affraid of the price .... Asus ROG Thor 1200W ATX Platinum already retails for 350€. That SFX-L Titanium will cost as much as a gaming console for a single PSU XD
Very true. But it could also provoke some reactions from competition.
By any chance, would you know which OEM will be behind those loki PSU?

The Thor was made by Seasonic. Seems like Seasonic is the OEM behind a lot of ASUS's PSU, and since both companies often have 10 years of warranties on their PSUs, it's likely for the next ones as well.

Gives a good assurance, as Seasonic is very well regarded.

If Seasonic is pushing again to SFX-L PSU, it will be great news indeed. Since their focus SGX nothing moved from their side.

immediately first thing that came to my mind is how crazy pricing would be - Asus ROG tax + RGB would not be small. Glad I have the Silverstone 1000W SFX-L already

Hey @MarcParis knowing what a fan you are of Maine Coons have you seen this one? My GF came across this and I thought you might like it.
Ahah thanks for sharing this link!
Very big (not fat) main coon there, pretty rare even for Main Coon.

You are also right that lately Russian Main coon breed are interesting (got one from Russia too...but not at all giant..;))

Unfortunately my Sound Blaster G3 just died this morning! (already returned to Amazon!)

At least, it proved that Audio Technica M60x+boom microphone was working well..;)

Back-up found with 10 years old sound blaster 5.1 pro. (sound quality is noticeably lower but still acceptable).

I'm looking to find another DAC then (Asus Clavis, Razer THX Onyx are under study).

This is legit my most exciting CES announcement this year. Its time that SFX and SFX L psu get wider recognition, was thinking of changing my PSU in preparation for bigger and bigger power consumptions

What a shame. My schiit dac just died on me last week, must be a bad time to be a dac.
My G3 just lasted for 1 month. How long last your schiit?

Yes at last, SFX PSU is clearly spreading. Next step is to have more smaller consumer cases with SFX compatibilty only.
