Great PSU, Great Price

Dennis B., Newegg
24 June 2015
  • Summary: This is a great PSU. I have had this in my PC for 3 years now and it still works perfectly. I wish it was Modular but even though it isn't, the cabling is very long allowing many different configurations. The sleeves on the cabling is good quality as well.
  • Pros: Good quality, fan control, quiet
  • Cons: Not Modular

Died a couple days under 1 year.

Crystal A., Newegg
21 April 2015
  • Summary: I make gaming YouTube video's and my computer runs at high power over 15 hours a day. Under that stress the power supply could not handle and burned out. If you don't use the computer that much may not be bad.
  • Pros: Worked well out of box. Not bad for a casual user.
  • Cons: Dead in just under 1 year. Under the heavy use I put it through it couldn't keep up. Started with minor problems and completely crapped out in just under 1 year.

Better than expected

John B., Newegg
12 March 2015
  • Summary: I feel like I got a $100 PS for half price. I am very happy with what I've found - a case of "not as advertised" coming out in my favor. I got this to power an upgrade graphics card - in my case, CrossfireX would not be good, so I only need the one - but I would have to go with 1kw or more to power...
  • Pros: OK - so, color me impressed - this turns out to be better than I'd expected - since the specs don't match what's on Newegg. Turns out there are 2 more SATA power connects and 2 more Molex connectors (for a total of 6 each). The 20+4-pin ATX main power and 8-pin ATX 12V (splitable to 2x4 pin) are ...
  • Cons: It doesn't install itself.

Two years later

Daniel P., Newegg
24 February 2015
  • Summary: I bought one 2 years ago for a EVGA 570 GTX 4Gb an if I make a 970 build I'll buy another. Not sure if how much of it's superb results are due to the Lian Li case.
  • Pros: The beast. LOL. Clean design. Blue looms. Clean looms. Easy to use (installing/upgrading). Big fan. Not fancy enough to land in my yard at night as a UFO. Lots of plugs. Operation is smooth an easy on the back of the PC. Great price.
  • Cons: none?

1 year still going strong

ANGELA C., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: i have read in the reviews that peoples fans have died out? that has not yet happened to me after a year of heavy use
  • Pros: i was skeptical purchasing this at first considering i had never heard about apevia once before this but not a bad buy nice LEDs, cooling is good, good wattage for the price, very solid build its more like a brick than a power supply, a lot of leads, very good price
  • Cons: fans are a bit loud but not to the point were i will take off an egg, nothing else really

Awesome

Mike D., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • Summary: A lot of the wires are split for versatility, which is nice, but threw me off when I was looking for a 4-pin until I realized it was two 4-pins stuck together.
  • Pros: I bought this to replace my old PSU which one of the fans went bad on. This is by the far quietest PSU I've ever had. Music to my ears. My sanity was found in the form of this PSU. Peace and quiet and it get's the job done.
  • Cons: None.

Rolling the dice on this one

Gregory G., Newegg
27 January 2015
  • Summary: I won the QC fail lottery with this one, but hey at least it wasn't RMA
  • Pros: When it worked, it was quiet and pretty
  • Cons: Stopped working one day, junked it for my old reliable PSU from 2006

10 months.. POP!

Troy N., Newegg
23 December 2014
  • Summary: couldn't do anything for a replacement. roommate voided my warranty due to me finding out later he scammed newegg. to get a second system out of them.. how you ask. well lets just say he insisted on making this order in his account.. (feels like an idiot)
  • Pros: blue went well with my green LED's and cold cathode. 3 fans kept it somewhat cool. fan controller was nice controlled all 3 fans which the more power to the fans the brighter the LED's in the fans got. easy set up.
  • Cons: ran solid for 10 months and 16 days..i powered the system down. flipped the switch. rearranged the house. gently moved the system around. put it where i needed it next. hooked up power cord. flipped the switch back on. POP! sparks shot out through the back and the AAAAARRRRRRCCCCCCC..
