    Even though FSP introduced this particular model only a little over a year ago, there's a few things that make me think "old school" with this power supply.  I'm not just talking about the conservative finish and lack of lights and cables either. First, the air flow created by the power supply is not what some manufacturers had in mind when incorporating the power supply as part of your chassis cooling solution.  The air moves from the front of the power supply to the back instead of from the bottom to the back.  Also, even though this power supply is "530W," it sports most of it's juice on the 5V rail, much like with the Raidmax we just reviewed.  That means in two of our three tests, the power supply will HAVE TO BE pushed out of spec.  The Raidmax didn't seem to mind this at all.  How will this FSP handle it?  Lastly, the lack of cables that a lot of PC's require these days.  No PCI Express, no SATA...
