It outlived its usefulness?

Lucas F., Newegg
14 March 2013
  • Summary: I would really like to see Cooler Master make straight modular power supplies. Weird flow designs like the Norco racks need to be uncluttered really bad. Now that I have a tried and true PSU with no purpose I'll probably use it when building a system for a friend.
  • Pros: I honestly can't remember why I bought this. My order history shows Norco stuff so I assume it was for that. The same model PSU was in the rack more than a year before I got this one. The straight through airflow design was very hard to find for under $40 so I probably snagged this to minimize do...
  • Cons: Rather than blow up like every other PSU, the failure stops here. Both units have run 3-4 years and the recent one outlived its usefulness. So, bad job Cooler Master, you made something indestructible? Now do it again! :)

2U certified!

William B., Newegg
16 September 2011
  • Pros: If you're using a Norco 2U, you need an ATX that 'blows through' - not too easy too find; most PSU's these days 'suck from' the top, with a large fan - won't work in a server chassis, as the lid is +- 1/4" from the PSU top... This un'l do the trick!
  • Cons: None yet - way more power than needed for an eight drive 4GHz Clarkdale driven server...

Cheap, Reliable, Low Wattage

steve m., Newegg
18 May 2011
  • Summary: I deducted 1 egg because I feel this isn't the best PSU you can buy for the money or in its price range. Its starting to show its age, however if you need a reliable PSU for a low wattage system then I'd highly recommend this over similarly priced (High wattage / lower quality) units.
  • Pros: Cheap and reliable. I've used this in a home server for a couple of years. Rear facing fan is great for cramped, heat challenged cases and it was nearly inaudible. Decent supply of basic connections.
  • Cons: No 8-pin connector. Probably due to its age, however using an adapter works just fine on my Gigabyte AMD785. No PCI-E power connectors, but then again this isn't much of a gaming PSU so I wouldn't count it against it.

Very nice

Michael G., Newegg
29 April 2011
  • Summary: I placed my optical drive in the lowest bay, and the first hdd in the highest bay, and the cable fits just fine. If you have a whole mess of drives, this may not be the best p/s for you.
  • Pros: So far so good. Runs very quiet, cannot hear the fan even in the slightest.
  • Cons: As another user mentioned, only 1 SATA branch with 3 connectors.
