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.
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.
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.
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: Did not have all the connections ADVERTISED might wanna fix that cuz that was a real bad disappointment when it came in today under Features- connections Newegg states it has 6- 4pin Peripheral connections it only has 4 main reason y i bought this power supply
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

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....
