Summary: Be careful if you plan on hooking up a graphics card with dual power connectors. This PSU will not power that due to lack of connectors. I had to return mine as I bought and didn't even think to check for that on a 500W power supply. I have a lower rated Seasonic that has 2 connectors on it. Shame Fractal.
This decision was made even easier bas FD PSUs have an excellent specification and reputation

Summary: When I build a PC I try to head-off problems before they arise, one of the simplest tricks is to buy a PSU which is guaranteed to fit well in your new case, hence my new Fractal Design (FD) case deserved a Fractal Design PSU. This decision was made even easier by FD PSUs have an excellent specification and reputation, even their "budget" Integra range. I can confirm that this PSU fitted my FD ARC case perfectly runs both cool and quietly. Recommended.
Summary: Paid more for a PSU than I planned with this, but a stable, quiet and cool power source can prevent a lot of hassle in the future. I have to say, I was impressed with the quality. The cables are nicely loomed together and there's plenty of connection options.
Summary: I bought this PSU to replace a Seasonic S12II-430, and am generally happy with it. The wire loom is not as complete as the one of my previous PSU, and the quality of the connectors is a bit lower, but it fits all my needs and still has some room for expansion and meets all my needs. The new PSU has no coil whine (which was an issue with the Seasonic), but its fan is more noisy.
