Summary: Very well valued and useful. I bought three of these over the course of two years- one for an HTPC and two for gaming computers. The only issue was with the unit that is in the HTPC. The fan started to make noises after a year of use, making it the loudest part of the computer (and, frankly, a nuisance). This hasn't happened with the two other units.
Summary: Have had this running almost 24/7 for more than 5 years. Saw that it is listed as a tier 3 PSU on an "eggxpert" list of various PSU (that's after tiers 1,2a, and 2b). Currently powering i7 920 and gtx 760, going strong.
Summary: This has been running a 24/7 home server since I received it 4 years ago. I have not had a single issue with it. It has been rock solid. If you don't need a ton of power and want something modular, reliable, efficient and quiet I doubt you will find anything as rock solid as this power supply at this price.
Pros: - Modular - Efficient - VERY reliable - Quiet
Pros: Plonked this in my home server and forgot about it - it's been very solid and reliable, running for a few years now. Modular cabline is great, I wish all PSUs did this - my desktop is a mess with all the cables that I don't use.
Summary: You simply can't go wrong if you are running 1-3 HD's and a recent middle market Nvidia GPU. Don't worry about the "600w required" on many GPU's,, that's only for low efficiency P/S that most inexpensive cases and PC's come with.
Pros: 1) Reliable and stable. 2) 80+ Modular 3) Cable length is perfect for wire hiding in Mid Towers. 4) Should be more than sufficient for almost any mid GTX700 card. 5) Look at the price again.
Summary: When I hooked up a meter to the pc power connector the system idled at 80 watts and during my game play it used 300 watts so there is and has been plenty of overhead and I plan on using this PSU until it is maxed out to specs but then again after 5 years that may not ever happen. Over the years I have used Antec and I have never had one break or die. I know there is a certain amount of luck involved but these are built by great engineers. Don't buy a cheap power supply!
Pros: We have had this for so long that we just haven't given it much thought. When you shop for components and you are unfamiliar with a brand or model you may have your fingers crossed for a while but Antec has always been reliable for me. All previous Antec I have purchased still work to date including my first one back in 2002. This is powering MSI 785gm e65 motherboard Phenom2 CPU MSI GTS250 video card w/1 gig ram 4 gigs of Mushkin 1600 ram 5 hard drives 1 SSD drive Li...
Cons: There is just not any cons that I can think of.
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.
