Summary: Never bought a coolermaster psu before. Working great so far for 2 weeks. Easy to install. Cable length was great. CAbles nice and easy to route through cable management. Good price for lots of watts. run's a i5 CPU w/ 8GB of ram and a GTX560Ti. No issues.
Pros: Good price, lots of power, lots of connections
Summary: I bought this thinking that Cooler Master is a reputable brand and that I was in good hands. And at first I was looking at a simple PSU to support a build without any graphics card in it (only using the GPU in my 4770K) as I didn't plan to play games. This PSU was ok and 625W was more than enough (I needed around 400W maybe)... I can report that I had NO problems with it, hence the 3 stars review...
Pros: Very silent
Cons: Cheap, but is it really?, Cheap tier 4 PSU barely better than no names, Not modular
Summary: Easy to install and works right out of the box. Bought it for $49.99 during the Christmas sale and there was a $15 MIR with it. Unfortunately their mail in rebate program is terrible as they require the documents to be mailed on the day of, unlike other manufacturers that give at least a month before the rebate expires. All in all, product works well.
Summary: This is a great PSU for a budget build. Low noise and ample power for an i5 mild gaming rig. It is not modular but the cables are easily enough handled so cable management is good. The PSU itself is a nice small, black unit so it looks good in the case if that matters to you. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a PSU for a similar build.
Pros: Small and quiet, Provides good power for mild gaming rig, Cables are easily managed even if it isn't modular
Summary: Got this because I needed about 280W on one rail to have enough power for my video card that has two 6 pin PCIe power connectors. 280W / 12V = 23.3Amps. This power supply has 24Amps, so I'm good. My old power supply had 18Amps per rail and the video card would often freeze when the video card was very active. Since buying this power supply, hasn't frozen once. One thing that is weird is that the PCIe connectors are supposed to supply 75W each.
Summary: Bought this for my eGPU setup. Needed to ensure that the 12V1/v2 rails have at least 14A each to power the GPU. Fits nicely into a gutted and re-puporsed Shuttle case (contains PSU, GPU, PE4L+SWEX, case fan). Having extra amperage ensures that should I want to upgrade to a more powerful GPU, or just go SLI, I have enough wattage to maintain a stable system, for overclocking as well.
Pros: -ample power on the 12V rails, -not overly large, fits in most any standard case, -cables are the right length: not too long, but also not at all short, -no popping or buzzing noises from it
Summary: Yes, it's not modular, but there isn't an excessive amount of cables. I have just enough cables for my system, which has 1 SSD, 1 HDD, 1 graphics card, 1 fan controller. So you don't have cables laying around all over the case. Cable lengths are great, not too long, not too short. I was able to swing the 8-pin mobo cable behind the mobo tray and all the way up and around back onto the mobo. PCI-E cables reached my graphics card without any issues as well.
Pros: Compact size for 625w, Nice black color, Long cable lengths, Just enough cables for system build, Cool and quiet, Plenty of power & very stable, Inexpensive
