Cougar CMX 550w Preview

Cougar CMXIntroduction

Since Hardware Secrets made us all look a little silly a few years ago, without access to the full test setups that the big sites and PSU manufacturers have, XSR has backed off its PSU reviews to instead make them unboxing-previews.

Please bare in mind that this preview of the Cougar CMX 550w will not include any performance numbers.
