It works

David M., Newegg
4 September 2014
  • Summary: I made this comment on my other parts as well: Computer parts are freaking cheesy these days. The z97 mobo flexes when you plug things in, the GTX 760 bends downward on one side due to its own weight, the stock Intel cooler is held on my flimsy plastic clips, the case is slightly bowed inward due to a manufacturing defect, and the modular PSU came with bent pins. All of the parts came from reputable manufacturers.
  • Pros: So far, so good. I bought a similar PSU back in 2006 that failed after a year, so let's hope this one lasts longer.
  • Cons: None.

It led a good life

Jeremy C., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: At just shy of 5 years this PSU is giving up the ghost. I just upgraded my wife's machine from a Q6600/p45 board, 6GB DDR2 800, GTX 285 to an i5-2690/Z97, 8GB DDR3 1600, GTC 760 system. I noticed an odd, almost squeaking sound coming from the computer. Testing each of the fans, I found none of them being the culprit. Loading the manufacturers monitoring software, I found the PSU showing 12.02V at idle, and dropping to 11.8 under load.
  • Pros: Good value for price, stable for years
  • Cons: Not modular

  • Pros: This PSU has lasted me for more about 2 and a half years now and has been working wonderfully. It's not that loud and has powered my AMD Athlon X4 640, 450 GTS and my 16GB RAM for my very minor video editing, normal usage and gaming. It also has space for you to add extra cables if you need like another PCI cable for example.
  • Cons: None so far.

Grr8!

  • Pros: Clean design and make, very versatile, no nonsense install went perfectly and it is doing it's job admirably. Appears to have a lot of power to spare. Fan runs quietly and unobtrusively.
  • Cons: None, zero zilch!

  • Pros: Lasted 4 years

Works like a charm.

  • Summary: Little loud at sometimes when I'm playing some high def video games. But other than that, works really well. I got it after my 850w antec died, tried to get something more closer to the wattage my computer needed. Works like a charm! I searched the internet and they don't stress enough, that when you build your computer-- GET A PS THAT HAS A LITTLE MORE THAN THE WATTAGE YOU NEED, NOT SOMETHING THAT IS OVERKILL.
