Summary: This PSU is not reliable enough for the application it's built for. It's sold as an Entry-Level Power Supply (EPS) to be used in servers, but I've had this one in service for less than nine months and it's already failed me. The power supply was functioning normally supplying an Intel SE7501BR2 Dual Xeon server board under light load until it failed.
Summary: Not modular, but I wasn't expecting that.
Pros: Has been running steadily and reliably for the last 6-7 months.
Cons: It is extremely loud and noisy - overpowers all the other components in my case. I haven't replaced it just because I use headphones most of the time while I use my computer. If you use your computer without headphones, stay away. The noise level really is a deal-breaker in that case. Pay up for a better brand.
Summary: I bought this to complete a computer build for my parents who did not require anything extraordinary for their needs. Although not modular, this psu is quiet and has worked well for them, now 6 months in. The price is also right. I am pleased and so are my parents!
Summary: La compré como compañera de una hd 6870, es una fuente ideal para esta gama de tarjetas, me parece que es la que tiene la mejor relación calidad precio. Sin embargo si piensas que algún día usarás gama alta, o usarás crossfire/SLI es mejor adquirir una de mayor capacidad.
Summary: Anyone with an HP or Compaq computer is best getting a Cooler Master, while everyone else is best steering clear of it. This is because Cooler Master was made for HP in mind and besides that, is an electricity hog. Regardless, you should be able to run any PSU in any motherboard, but still, the more compatible, the better.
Pros: After using these cheap power supplies to save some money on builds for work. The pro is it's cheap, and about 50% of them have worked decently.
Cons: The downside is checking them with a psu tester they often come up quite short of what power output they claim to put out, and the voltages tend to be off. By a very obvious amount. (the worse in the last two cases of this product I've had, missing about .5 on the 12 volt rail)
