Quiet, fits Dell Studio XPS case, plenty of connections
12 June 2012
Summary: Purchased the Cooler Master GX 650W to replace a failed PSU in a Dell Studio XPS 435MT. Although it was a bit tricky to maneuver it into place (without moving other components), it will squeeze in, & fits into the PSU location in the case "perfectly." The PSU fan faces downward, pulling air up from the center of the case & then out the back of the PSU, unlike the OEM PSU which had a small fan blowing outward from the rear.
Summary: Bought to provide adequate power to run an eVGA GTS 450 graphics card in my Dell. Thr 2.5-year-old factory PSU, originally rated at 475 watts, was not adequate to run my video-editing/graphics creation PC under load. On mulitple occasions since installing the GTS 450, my display would fail. Knowing all other components in the PC are sound, I checked out several online power supply calculators, which showed that I was drawing at least 515 watts under 80% load.
Summary: For the price of it, its definitely not a bad PSU. Not sure I'm sold on the decal that is on the side of it. Doesn't really match in any case colour wise. If you can spend more get something fully modular, it looks way better and is easier to cable manage.
Pros: Inexpensive, 80+
Cons: Would've liked it all black or at least a normal case colour (blue, red, etc.)
Pros: Nice power supply and seems to have the power to run an i7 960 clocked at 3.0ghz and a GTX 560TI.
Cons: If you run this upside down in a newer case where the fan sucks the air from the bottom it gets amazingly loud. If you run the older style where it gets its air from the case you will be just fine.
Summary: my 1st time to see a 650 PSU really small....its actually smaller than my previews PSU which 550....but this GX650 gets its done running my PC to perfection,,,but the fan get a LITLE just LITLE nosy when it gets hot...it has a smart fan so its automatically pumps up if the PSU need more cool air....but i gove this a 4.5/5 rating.....cables are not problem to me cause i'm using a mid tower case but if ur using a full tower u might wanna pick another PSU...not this one....
Summary: I was very impressed with this power supply for the price. All of the cables are a good thickness and are all sleeved. All the connectors are a nice tight fit. I put it in a mid size thermaltake v9 black and the cables were the perfect lenght. I would worry putting this in a larger case, You might run into some lenght challenges.
Pros: Price and looks
Cons: except for the sticker a little crooked like the pic
Summary: I bought it because it was cheap, 80+ and 650W for $90. I didn't expect more. It was cheap like OCZ. I don't recommended to buy it for gamers. Go look for Antec, Corsair ,and Silver Stone. It is a good price for beginners. Good Luck!
Summary: This brand was recommended by a computer techie. It arrived quickly and, as I'm no expert, I had it installed in my PC by a local computer engineer. It's nice & quiet and seems to work well. It's cured the start up problems I had before.
Summary: Five year warranty a bonus. Will require a picture of purchase to verify when doing so. Cables a bit stiff, not the best encasing I have experienced. Connections 'very' stiff' to apply to components. It is very quiet (can confirm). Powers a i5 cpu, 1 x ssd, 1 x 600gb hdd, Asus P8Z77-V Premium Motherboard, 8 gb ram, gtx 260, no complaints.
