I just picked it up, wow, easily worth over $100, the PSU alone was worth it...

New, that setup would cost around $180.

Great find!

from my last post until now I was swapping out PSUs in my Aerocool ExtremEngine 3t case, the True Power is surprisingly...light, to be such a quality PSU (but so was my Antec Earthwatts 500w)...

I am seriously thinking of making the Mystique my main rig case, it looks cool as she-it in person, wow, also, it is screwless which will help with as much as I go into my case, my Aerocool has been my baby since I got it 3 years ago but the Cooler Master is tempting me to cheat...



I actually could have got it for $30 like the listing, but he held it for me for a week and we had a couple missed meetings for the swap, so I tipped him $20, lol, I wouldn't have felt right only giving him only $30, maybe I'm going soft in my old age, but it was still a good deal at $50 and he had his wife and kids with him and they went to breakfast so I figured I'd pay for their breakfast to show my appreciation...

of course if I had opened it up and found a generic case and generic PSU I would have had to hunt him down like the dirty dog he would've been, but thankfully that wasn't necessary, there's nothing better than an honest Craigslister...

not only was it a great deal, it was one I needed, I was going to order this PSU if I couldn't get the case and psu...



there is one thing I don't like about the True Power, the fan exhausts into the case across the motherboard while the Basiq vented outside the case, my temps have risen about 5, but they were already low so it's not that big a deal...
