The aluminum fins completely cover the PSU's exterior, to a much higher extent than the previous two units and should do a great job of keeping the internals cool. The thick aluminum exterior is expertly crafted and explains the extra cost of this unit. Be careful though, some of the corners of the fins are quite sharp.
