Great Price for a great product

Trever P., Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Pros: Relatively inexpensive. Plenty of power. Still working after nearly 5 years
  • Cons: Main supply wasn't able to reach the slot on my motherboard, due to how my case is set up, simply had to buy extension, still works great. Only was a minor setback while putting the build together. Though this isn't necessarily a problem with the PSU itself, more so the case I'm using.

Works but developed high pitched whine

Riley Z., Newegg
27 October 2015
  • Pros: Didn't die, used for 3+ years. Supported AMD Phenom II 4X 955 BE and HD 5770 without power issue.
  • Cons: Developed a high pitched whine after a year. After 3 years, even though it was still working I wanted something quieter and replaced it.

Last almost 5years

Chris Z., Newegg
25 August 2015
  • Pros: I normally upgrade my PC every 2years or so, but I've kept this one awhile. I've had this PSU for over 4years now and it just the other day died. I am ordering the same one again. Let's hope it lasts as long as needed and I'll keep this at 5stars.
  • Cons: Failed a little shy of 5 years. Not really a con. 5years for a PSU is good.

Worked for 3 hours

ezra r., Newegg
29 March 2015
  • Summary: Try it because it's a good price, but don't be surprised if it craps out on you.
  • Pros: None that I can see, because it worked for 3 hours.
  • Cons: It worked for 3 hours, I got everything installed and then I stepped away to get something to eat and when I came back the monitor was off. I thought it just fell asleep but it wouldn't wake up. I tried turning it on again, but nothing. after a few attempt, the PSU turned on but just the blue lig...

Still going strong

Audra B., Newegg
2 February 2015
  • Summary: I have owned this power supply since 2010 and it's still running great. Never even had a worry thus far.
  • Pros: Runs quiet. LED look cool. Because of the open back and the open area for the fan on the bottom I can blow the dust out of it easy.
  • Cons: Zero.

This PSU worked for 2 years then fried my SSD and 1TB HDD

Nick K., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Pros: Worked without a problem for 2 years
  • Cons: I turned my machine on the other day and started to smell electrical burning. I opened my case and it was smoking from my Seagate 240GB SSD which was twice the price of this PSU. I thought it was an issue with my SSD but i then tried to plug the sata cable into my standard 1TB HDD and it started ...

SLI

Derik B., Newegg
17 November 2014
  • Summary: For the approx $193 I paid for a discount PSU that burned out in less than a week and a new Corsair PSU I could have just bought a decent one from the get go. Learned my lesson, now moving on. Removed the blue fan w/led though and use that to this day.
  • Pros: Fan and LED looks cool Works great as a paper weight.
  • Cons: Fried the day after I upgraded to 2-way SLI in a brand new build, even with decent wattage overhead.

Slightly different model than prior

Peter S., Newegg
29 July 2014
  • Summary: Had this power supply for 5 years no problem. Then one day it died. Went to my history, found it, clicked it, still available as same model. Ordered, installed, CRACK. SATA POWER RAIL SNAPPED!!! WHY? Tension on cable. WTEFF! TENSION?
  • Pros: Great price - Rebate
  • Cons: Missing 2 SATA RAILS from last exact same model.
