Summary: This baby powers this system flawlessly: 8150 FX AMD 3.6 ghz octa core 250 GTS 1gb MSI Samsung spinpoint 1tb hard drive 16 gigs ripsaw z series gigabyte UD3 990 FX mobo I'm upgrading to the Rosewill BRONZE Series RBR1000-M 1000W.
Pros: Had it for over 3 year's, running nearly 24/7, and it runs perfectly fine still. Powers a moderate system (see other thoughts) with power to spare. It is extremely reliable, with a sturdy design. Plenty of plugs for all your hardware
Cons: To many plugs for all your hardware, since it's not modular wires just get packed into my case. The only thing I ever had a problem with was when it doesn't power back on after a power outage. I think this is a safety thing built into the PSU, I'm hoping it is anyways. But it always freaks me out...

Summary: I like components and people and company's that perform as they should. Good job Antec and Newegg.
Pros: My favorite power supply manufacturer. Platinum rated. The braided cabling. Installed perfectly. in a Fractal R 5 Define. I like permanent, non modular cabling and a no nonsense appearance. It works perfectly powering an X99 machine and all the installed equipment. Runs silently and cool. I only ...
Cons: It isn't much of a conversational guy but he really does his job well. Ya can't have everything I guess.
Summary: I loved Antec products and I was proud to own one but a PSU short could potentially have damaged anything and everything in my computer. I expected better quality from Antec and will most certainly not be buying a PSU from them again.
Pros: Looks very polished and thoughtfully designed. Labels, warnings, and an adapter for everything on a nice looking case.
Cons: PSU was under very little stress and died after one year and eight months of use.
Summary: Good power supply for single video card implementation. Efficiency is closer to 90% in real world testing, still better than most. There is enough amperage overhead to justify adding two more PCIe for SLI/Crossfire. Quiet under load, whisper quiet under normal PC usage. Ample heat dissipation.
