All of the eye candy the Case Gear X-Plug PSU offers up is great, but to me what counts the most is how well it supplies clean, stable power to the various voltage rails in the computer. Unfortunately, it stumbled a little bit in this area... The Case Gear X-Plug PSU voltage rails never fell out of specification, but all of the voltage rails did a lot of 'dancing' around within the 5% allowable tolerance. - The Review

I don't see any method of case grounding on that PSU at all - thats a dangerous oversight if true.
Its ignorant to expect to ground your entire system using the ground wire connecting to the motherboard. That adds risk to your motherboard as well. Also you never know if somebody is using plastic stand-offs or copper ones so you still end up having isolated your drives etc.
With out a separate grounding source I couldn't possibly recommend this PSU to anybody, ever.
