Platinum level efficiency. Ample power for most builds. Sleeved cables. Fully modular. ATX adapter included if needed. Quiet operation. Excellent build quality
None, unless you are using a larger case, then the short(er) cables might be a pain.
This has been by "go to" power supply for the majority of my SFF builds. I absolutely prefer the individually sleeved cables to the flat cables found in other SFF power supplies, since it is much easier to cable manage in those tight cases. I will use other power supplies only if this one is out of stock when I need it. The cable length is "just right" for most ITX-style builds and cases, so if you are building in a larger case, you might get frustrated by the cable length. Even some mid-tower micro ATX cases might be too big, but SFX power supplies like this one are designed for the small build, where "regular" length cables are a hinderance and a pain to manage.

It handles the load from a 3080 + 5900X no problem. The included cables are quite nice and flexible, unlike the ribbon cables one normally gets with a PSU - so the install and cable routing were easy. The cables are not long though, in a large-ish case you could have problems.
This thing WHINES! Even with a load consisting of just a ripped DVD playing scaled up to 4K it whines. I can hear it 15 feet away. It doesn't even whine at a constant volume, it goes up and down, the tone varies from a clean sine wave to sine wave with lots of harmonics. Impossible to ignore the thing. It's going back.
In fairness, I have two others of this product line, a 450 & a 600, and they are dead silent. Solid power but whiney.

Most powerful SFX PSU you can get. (As far as I know) Fully Modular. Premium braided cables. 80+ Platinum. SFX. Future proof. 7 year warranty. Lots of zip ties, a good amount of mounting screws, and two Corsair Velcro straps. (Complimentary Corsair badge) Great price point with everything included.
Cables are very short. Do not go bigger than NZXT H210. Potentially deflective, more likely if you didn't do your research.
It almost didn't fit in my NZXT H210i, instead of routing the motherboard cable through the usual place you would on any case, I had to route it through a luckily placed opening in the PSU shroud so it could just fit - and I mean just fit. So the cables are nice and snug behind my GPU. Honestly looks kinda sweet, pretty unique looking that way and still very clean. One minor downside to that is I did have to mount the PSU fan up, though the fact that its an option to be mounted that way should help ease any concern of it worsening the thermals by any substantial regard, as I imagine that was intentionally designed for workarounds, worked just as if mounted regularly with the fan down.

- Modular - Corded cables - Teeny Tiny - Comes with nice velcro straps
- Short cables
Can't comment on the overall performance of this PSU but I was less than pleased with the length of the cables, which required me to run them all in the main section of the case rather than being able to hide them in the back/top panels. In addition to the short length, some of the split connectors are terminated with their cables wrapped around other connectors, so you can't even straighten them all out without removing the pins. Overall I'm happy with the feel of the PSU but having to buy new cables right away for functional purposes is really annoying.
