Raven Revolutionizes Airflow If you build a custom water cooled PC, airflow isn’t a huge concern. As long as you have enough radiators, chances are your components will stay nice and cool.

750W Platinum SFX PSU Yes, you read that correctly. Somehow, Corsair managed to cram 750 watts into an SFX PSU. Not only that, but the unit is also platinum rated.
