Great PSU for the price, Corsair are usually rebranded Seasonic PSUs, which are one of the best makes in the business. Its a lot of kit for the price, I'd recommend them any day.
Can't think of any, but if I did have a complaint it would be that there are quieter PSUs out there, but it's a minor issue
