Summary: Hello, I chose 3 stars becuase although it works and i have used it for about a year, it is definitely not for gaming. For awhile I had to old NVIDIA Geforce 7600 GT and it worked smoothly! When I put in a Asus Radeon HD 6850, it will crash after an hour or so. The Power supply meets recommended requirements yes, but the power from the box is declining. I am currently in the market for another power supply so it may work on my graphics card and not crash.
Summary: I bought this to replace an older failing BFG supply. Glad I am back with Antec. It works perfectly, it is quiet and delivers steady voltages across all lines. The only thing is I wish it had more options in the modular lines provided, perhaps one with both SATA and old school MOLEX on the same line. But it is a small detail that does not affect its so far rock solid performance and silence.
Summary: I needed a new PSU and opted for this one based on the reviews. When my computer still would not start, I sent in for a replacement, and got a second one to test with (I love Amazon's replacement policy). Eventually I realized the motherboard died as well. When testing with two of these power supplies, one of these caused the system to freeze much faster than the other. I do not know if this is common, but it seemed the juice from one was fairly greater than the other.
Summary: Been running this for about 18 hours a day, six months straight. No problems. Only thing I would do different in the future is bump up to 650 or 700 watts; was overclocking a graphics card and ran into some trouble that *might* have been due to having bought too small a power supply unit for my system.
Summary: I don't understand why this company is not mentioned more in the computer building circles. The design and materials used to build this is beautiful. It's a shame that it is installed into a place inside a case that hides it from view!
Summary: I got this power supply to go in a whitebox test platform. used it with a M5A99X EVO R2.0 ASUS motherboard along with 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance modules and a AMD FX 6100 6-Core Processor processor. Everything worked well together and got the machine up and running in no time. Shipping was prompt as is always the case on with my Amazon Prime items.
