I need one and I'd buy one. I have an A1200, but I have a few A500s as well that I like to use.

A lot of people prefer their desktop cases, so if there was a better cooling option for Blizzards, people wouldn't NEED to butcher their sexy A1200s and stick them in ugly bloated towers.

I can understand why you need a new PSU if you are going to end up with a PPC or 040 in your A1200, but other than that -whats the point? The stock PSU is good enough.
The standard PSU was great... in the 80s! Since then, they've become angry old bastards who blow up randomly and take Amigas with them. We need something to replace them simply because they're killing too many Amigas and we need a safer new option.
