I'm seriously dumbfounded by the sheer stupidity of that decision.
Errr... which decision? There are several decisions, many stupid some sane.
- one PCI-E = stupid
- six Molex = stupid. Molex is stupid, it always has been. I want to walk up to Mr Molex and punch him in the goolies everytime I have to deal with one of his so-called connectors. Six is stupid, one would be enough, two would be enough to show that they want to appeal to people with connector envy.
- eight SATA = good idea! Maybe that'll make this PSU good for a storage box without having to use stupid Molex-> SATA power connectors that crap out and turn your hard-drive off halfway through a write operation?! For the record, SATA power connectors suck, I want to walk up to the SATA Power Connector Design Working Committee and punch them in the goolies (and gooliettes, for the ladies) every time I have to deal with one of their so-called connectors. Nevertheless we're stuck with their suck, and they are the immediate future, so more = better.
- one PCI-E = stupid, in case I didn't mention that already
