really? any particular reason?

system stability + efficiency.

Gotta say I opted for this when I bought my system, then got a bit worried when I read a few sites about dodgy psus (the colors wasn't mentioned specifically, but it's cheap and Chinese).
But I've been pleasantly suprised by it so far - works efficiently and quietly, no problems at all.

think i'll stick with it, unless there's a really good reason not too, upgrade is about £50 more.

inmymind - As I am sure you are aware, the side of this case is just 1 huge fan - more than 14 inches in diameter! (I guess that is why it is called Propeller....).
Nothing wrong with that of course, but have your friends seen the case?

Good point, might go for the coolermaster 69R5 Black Super instead. i'll check with them.

Yep, going for the coolermaster. Cheers JYPX, good thinking.
