Summary: Okay I have a hd7970 sapphire gpu mining litecoins. I use an asrock z77e-itx in a cooler master elite 120 case. I have an i7 3770t cpu I have 2 sticks of samsing vlp low volt 4gb ram sticks I have a samsung blu ray player I have a Prolimatech Samuel 17 low profile cpu cooler. This setup hashes litecoins 24/7/365 pulls 265 watts to give 700kh of hash for litecoin. I also use a few ice fury nano sticks to hash 5gh for bitcoin.
Summary: For the Price, this is by far the best 80+ Gold/Platinum PSU you can buy. It's silent and uses high quality parts throughout the unit, which is unlike some of the 'budget' gold/platinum PSUs other makers like corsair (cheap sleeve bearing fan) or rosewill (older PCB design and cheaper electronics) offer. What makes this PSU particularly nice, is that it's very compact, which allows it to fit inside smaller cases, especially mITX cases, with ease.
Pros: Silent, Cheapest 80+ Platinum with high quality parts throughout, Short (140mm depth)
Cons: SATA/peripheral cables could be better designed, Not quite 80+ Platinum performance in NA 115VAC
Summary: I have been running this power supply for several months and have had not problems. Before install I tested the power supply to make sure it met the advertised specifications. Right on the money. Recommended for all your computer repairs.
Summary: I just built a new computer and chose this power supply for it based on the reviews on information from Antec's site. I do not regret it at all; I am so happy I bought it. The power supply is almost whisper quiet. I like the braiding around the cables, it helps a lot to keep them under control. Installation was simple. I hope I never need the three year warranty but I am glad it has it.
Summary: Outstanding PSU. Cable length is never going to be a problem. I put this in a ATX case and managed to run cables all the way to the opposite corner without needing to run the cables over the mobo.
Excerpt: I am very happy with this product mostly because it is super quiet. It has all the connectors that modern motherboards, video cards and other components need. So, I would recommend this product to everyone who is looking for a good power supply.
Pros: Easy To Install, Good Value, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: * 4+ rails * Platinum 80 Plus rating if your new to building pcs, and your curious to why this 650watt is 3-4 times more in price, its because of those two things at the top also the Antec names come with a little cost ;) Cheaper 650watt psu's waste alot of energy getting you your 650watt, so you burn up more of your electricity bill. You'll have to way in the cost value vs how much you wasted but for me, i wanted a total new build using highly energy efficient products.
