Excellent power to cost ratio!

Mr. c., Newegg
3 June 2012
  • Summary: I don't agree with some reviewer's here taking eggs off for it being a non-standard size and others inability to plug the modular cables in the right way. If you are having problems with which way the cables go in, it's simple..
  • Pros: 4 stable 22-25amp 12 volt rails, semi-modular eliminates unneeded cable clutter. Massive capacitors and pfc coil with dual pcb's enables this puppy to pump the power out cool and quiet. Great noise and ripple suppression. This a Great power supply for modern SandyBridge cpu's and the new 3rd gene...
  • Cons: Not a con in my book as I have P193v3 case, but it will not fit most cases without modification.

Lots of Power

Keven H., Newegg
17 May 2012
  • Summary: Found it would cost me nearly $40 in restocking and postage to RMA the power supply. So eventually decided to buy a $160 Antec case instead. I would have preferred using the case I originally bought, but will now have to save that for some other purpose.
  • Pros: My son works with graphics design. I bought this power supply intending to upgrade his computer at a later date to SLI. I've had good success with Antec products and this looked to have plenty of power on the 12V leads for a future SLI upgrade. Due to problems with a new Intel motherboard I haven...
  • Cons: I completely overlooked the fact that this power supply is much larger than most and will apparently only fit in one of three Antec cases. (My fault as Newegg mentioned this in the Overview page.)

Great.

Matthew C., Newegg
10 May 2012
  • Summary: There's some people on here that complain about it not fitting... well.. it's designed specifically for 3 specific cases.. if you don't have one of Antec's 1200/P183/P193 cases, then don't get it, 'nuff said. As for the other rainman who "plugged things in backward", well..
  • Pros: Great product Plenty of power. Runs cool and quiet. Semi-modular.
  • Cons: Not truly fully modular but still works great. Big. but it fits like a glove in an Antec 1200.

Powerful and Quiet

Adam C., Newegg
30 April 2012
  • Pros: Very powerful and quiet. I replaced my whining old power supply with this unit and have not run into issues yet.
  • Cons: I use an older case, and I had to hack-saw some space as well as snip a bit.

Works

Ryan M., Newegg
26 March 2012
  • Summary: Some parts are not modular. Leads to a few extra wires stashed at the bottom of my case.
  • Pros: Modular. Fits into my specific Antec case (beware -- does not fit most non-Antec cases). Runs pretty cool.
  • Cons: None. Still kicking after almost a yaer
