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...
Pros: Great power supply, I have had this for almost 2 years and not a single problem.... and it glows! All the connections you could ever want and the wires are covered. Got it on sale and couldn't be happier.

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 ...
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.
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.
