    The PSU, one of the last remaining sensible, practical, and dull items within a PC. In the days of yore when everything was beige and a kind of mottled steely colour this wouldn’t have really mattered; but today’s modern PC’s have windows, neon’s, UV, led-fans, shaped grills, lighted grills, silver mobo’s, various wild and wonderful shaped and coloured cases, and amidst all of this vibrancy lies the humble PSU, still grey, still boring, still forgotten… That is until today!

    Can I point out something :twisted: instead of the 5 to 10cm wire :eek: the professional use the GOOD OLD AMERICAN..... paper clips that's right... if you can't find the 5 to 10cm wire go for good old paper clips :eek: it works perfectly :wink: my two cents :wink:

    You should add a guide about cutting or painting the PSU as well.
