Great power supply. Just wish it would start up on red.

  • Pros: I've had this power supply in my computer for a year now with no problem at all.
  • Cons: It always starts up on blue. Basically each time you turn your computer on, you have to reach behind it and turn it red/green. If you're looking for a blue power supply, this is the thing for you. If you want red or green, be ready to push that switch every time you turn it on.

bang for buck

  • Pros: dual fans let me use it to push more hot air out of case. fan speed controller as well as led selector switch. works well with my system. COST. this thing was 39$ when i bought it plus shipping and was worth every penny twice over.
  • Cons: i most likely didn't see it in the info but it is a top of case mount psu. cords were a bit short and had to do some tricky routing. not a high power output put will work well with mid range setups.

Died

  • Summary: Its come to my attention based on several sites that Apevia has lied about the wattage on many of their power supply's. This particular one was not on any list but the brand are no longer trustworthy to me.
  • Pros: It worked well for about 3 months and the multiple lights were cool.
  • Cons: Ineffective after 3 months of use. Looks nothing like stock photo. Connectors don't have a glow color, its a solid blue. Cheap braiding. exposed wires are ugly. Its made for chassis with the power supply at the top. CPU connector is barely long enough for ATX mid at the bottom of the case.

I almost wish it didn't have the lights.

  • 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

  • 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

5 February 2015
  • Summary: This thing has been great to me from the time I opened the box. the fan speeds have a nice range that keep the PSU very cool. I use this for a gaming rig and have even had a few power hits yet this thing keeps ticking. Great buy, solid PSU
  • 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
