Coolermaster have 'pushed out the boat' in the styling department of the iGreen PSU. Electroplated in a gun-metal type finish, the iGreen looks simply stunning and also very much like a unit I reviewed a short while ago from Thermaltake. The best thing about electroplating is that the finish is flawless and much better than any paint finish as you can see below.
The front of the unit has the usual honeycomb grill as seen with almost all power supplies that utilise a 120mm fan for cooling. Also present on the front of the unit is a red LED which indicates when an Over-Volt, Under-Volt, Short Circuit, Over-Heat, Over-Load or Over-Current problem has occurred.
You may also notice the lack of an input voltage selection switch. This is because the iGreen series of PSU is able to detect the input voltage (110/240v) and switch accordingly.
I was slightly disappointed with the use of cable ties to keep the cables in place which has a negative impact on the unit's looks. It would be nice to see Coolermaster revising this and using a plastic o-ring to secure the cables instead.
