I take it the GS series basically has a bit more aesthetics (commonly known as 'bling') than the TX series? Maybe better ripple and noise as well?

I'm not really sure from a marketing standpoint, how you'd sell this PSU. It's solid, but Corsair's already got the TX series and HX series.

I'd go with a TX over this any day. It's cheaper, has japanese caps, and real heat sinks, as opposed to those stupid pieces of scrap metal which this uses

Hmm, the review says the number of connectors is good for a 700W PSU, but it only has 2 PCIe power connectors. There are 650W PSUs (with less amps on the 12V rail) that have 4 PCIe power connectors, enabling SLI/Crossfire with high-end graphics cards. This PSU seems a bit pointless when the GS 600 has 2 PCIe power connectors as well and will feed practically anything you can hook up that way.
