The choice of the Power Supply in this Limited Edition offering is incredibly interesting. Cooler Master has a wide array of PSUs on sale on their website, the M1000W Real Power, the UCP 1100W which make a lot more sense than the 700W one included with the case. To include a 700W PSU with a $600 Limited Edition kit including a top of the line CPU cooler and case seems to be a bit of a disappointment.

The main features of the PSU include it being a 700W PSU with 100,000 hours Mean Time between Failure rates. It is an Intel ATX 12V V2.3 compliant PSU that should fit in any ATX sized case. One of the benefits of the UCP case is the 80 Plus initiative. The UCP 700 has 88.69% typical efficiency, meaning that it qualifies for the 80+ Silver standard.

The PSU comes with a 24-pin power connector, a 4+4 pin CPU connector, 2 8-pin PCIE, 4 6-pin PCI-E connectors, 5 Molex connectors, 6 SATA connectors, and 1 Floppy connector. The inclusion of two 8-pin PCIE connectors and 4 6-pin PCIE connectors allows the installation of two video cards with 8-pin connectors like the HD 4870 X2 video card from ATI. If you want three or four card Crossfire or SLI I would strongly suggest a bigger PSU.
