I almost wish it didn't have the lights.

John M., Newegg
26 March 2015
  • Summary: An unexpected Pro: Since I have red LEDs and the power supply can do green, I'm thinking that'll be fun a Christmas.
  • Pros: It does the job adequately. I have a 125W processor and a massive graphics card which requires two 6-pin power cables. No complaints at all about its performance.
  • Cons: The color LEDs are a pain in the rear-end. I went with red LEDs for my case and bought this because I thought it would be adequate (it is) and there aren't many power supplies with red LEDs. When you turn off the PC, the power supply forgets which color you chose and defaults to blue. If you're u...

  • Pros: I have bought about 6 of these now? All are working great and its awesome that they have so many hookups. It is about twice as many that a normal PSU has.
  • Cons: The lights do not stay the same when the computer gets powered down.

It's alright

Zachariah M., Newegg
14 February 2015
  • Pros: It does what it's advertised to do. The see-through casing and the three different light settings are really nice and look good in my case. Comes with a lot of molex connectors. The adjustable fan speed is also really nice.
  • Cons: A little to be desired as far as the build quality goes, during installation the screws would barely fit and were really hard to tighten all the way, one screw even broke off before I could tighten it completely. The 8 pin motherboard power cord is very short and has to go over my motherboard ins...

Great PSU

Justin G., Newegg
5 February 2015

  • Pros: Great price, fan speeds, LEDS turn on/off, soild
  • Cons: LED switch picks a random color or off.

7 years strong

Lokirikos S., Newegg
26 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had this exact model of power supply for over 7 years now and used it in 3 different builds. It works just as well now as it did when I bought it. I'm only now retiring it because I need a high wattage PSU.
  • Pros: Comes at a good price, the multi-color LEDs are a nice fit for many cases. Cables are tough and pretty easy to organize given that it's not modular.
  • Cons: None

default color

Connie B., Newegg
14 August 2014
  • Summary: The power cables seem short although it could be the connector placement of the MOBO. It would be nice if the main power cable to the MOBO were longer because if a large video card is installed it really does hamper cable management.
  • Pros: This is a good p/s overall. Price.
  • Cons: None really but see other thoughts.

Lasted 8 years

Zebulin M., Newegg
7 August 2014
  • Summary: I couldn't *really* call this a con, but after 8 years, whenever I attempt to play a newer game (like Diablo III or State of Decay), my computer simply shuts off. I'm not sure it was ever designed with today's graphics cards in mind, but again, it *did* last 8 years, so I can't complain too much! :)
  • Pros: Lasted 8 years. Love the LEDs, and options to switch them. Looks great.
  • Cons: N/A

Very Cool

Ronnie G., Newegg
17 April 2014
  • Summary: This is a highly recommended PSU
  • Pros: This is a very Pretty PSU. It has everything I needed to run 5 HD's and 2 1gb Video Cards. The 12 volt has 24 amp, which my case recommended. When I priced other PSU's that met my requirements, they were all way higher priced. This one was on sale for 59 and worth every penny of it.
  • Cons: So many connections! - not a con, just hard to managed 6 different strands. But the plus side is - no matter what - you have plenty of connectors to run all equipment. This PSU is not for small cases. if your case is only 2 bays big - buy a new case! - This PSU is worth it!
