apevia 700w

Mary T., Newegg
20 February 2015
  • Pros: Quiet. Blue led. I have a i7 4790k a msi z97 g55sli motherboard. A samsung evo 250 ssd. 1 tb sata 8 gb ddr3 gskill 2 msi gtx 970 4gd5t oc video cards in sli. Ive heard some people say that you need more than a 700w for 2 gtx 970s. Nope. This power supply works fine and it was a great price.
  • Cons: None so far

Would not recommend for custom builds.

Brandon H., Newegg
27 January 2015
  • Summary: The only upside was that it was functional. I had two of them, both with the same problem. As soon as the gpu would go under load, the psu would make a (very) loud buzzing sound. I have heard coil whine before, but nothing like this. After 2 defective units in a row, I am sad to say Apevia has lost a customer. I will be going to a more reputable brand name.
  • Pros: It was functional.
  • Cons: Low quality parts.

Decent PSU

Joshua T., Newegg
23 December 2014
  • Summary: I've had this particular PSU since July of 2012. I have not tried SLI, mostly because I'm a little leery since it was pretty cheap. Not saying it wouldn't work. Might end up replacing it in 6mos to a year. Just to be safe, but may not necessarily have to do that. Have had ZERO warning signs that it's failing and been doing a great job so far. Wish the warranty had been longer than a year, just to put my mind at ease at least.
  • Pros: Easy installation. Plenty of wires(that I needed anyways). Blue light that matches my case lights. Works.
  • Cons: Haven't had any issues. Short warranty.

Not for SLI

21 December 2014
  • Pros: Flashy and looks cool. Newegg Sorta took care of it and gave me about half my money back...
  • Cons: Doesn't Handle SLI at all.. Replaced it with a Rosewill. I replaced it once and both died! Newegg should of gave me about 75% or more.

Collin T., Newegg

  • Pros: I built my own cpu using this psu in 2011, and it's still going strong not a single problem. I even bought this exact psu for my brothers cpu, and his is going without any problems for a year now. Its quite. It lights up blue. It's reliable. I definitely recommend this power supply.
  • Cons: none that I have run into yet.

Works Like A Charm!

Frederick S., Newegg
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I would recommend this PSU to anyone needing a cheap solution and good amount of power! Runs 4 Fans, 6 HDDs and obviously a Motherboard and quad core CPU with ease!
  • Pros: Simple install. Common everyday power supply! Nice blue LED's light up the case! Great Power for the money!
  • Cons: Fan is a little loud but for the money you really cant complain! Runs my home built server very well!

Keeps on working

Eric D., Newegg
16 February 2014
  • Pros: Works well. Has worked for 4.5 years in two separate home built rigs. Now powers a 4670K Haswell processor on a Gigabyte motherboard. Has blue lights if you like that sort of thing. Ps it's also quiet (I discovered that recently :). With the new mobo I don't need a separate video card with its own cooling fans. Wow. Does that ever make a noise difference.
  • Cons: It's worked for four and a half years. How can I possibly complain?

Very Dissapointed - Stay away from this Manufacturer

mark c., Newegg
25 January 2014
  • Summary: 11 months of service from an upper end component is not satisfactory.
  • Pros: Looked good with nice specs on paper. Rated output far above what I needed. I thought it would be a tank
  • Cons: After 11 months the computer began to shut off randomly. At first I did not attribute this to a defective power supply. Over the next 6-8 weeks the occurrences happened more frequently. When I replaced the PS the computer was shutting off every 20+ minutes. Unfortunately, by the time I replaced the PS it was outside of the factory warranty. What is worse, the company's website appears to no longer be functioning. No way to tell if they are even in business any longer....
