I think Icute is a rebranded ultra psu. Not the best, but not the worst either. If you can buy something better then do it.

Don't forget a a UPS to protect you investment. Power surges, etc can ruin ring. Forget about a surge suppressor.

Check to see if there's a UL # on the iCute PSU. If so, you can search and find out who makes it.

I personally would go with Enermax, Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, SivlerStone, Cooler Master PSUs...
