Summary: I bought this power supply as a back up for when I needed to replace one on my home computer. The power supply recently went out in my home computer. So I took this power supply I bought a year and installed it in computer and went to power on my computer and it would not power on. I tested the power supply and it was bad. If I had known it was bad when I bought, I would've returned it.But I guess since it was a year ago I can't do anything about it.
Pros: Good power supply. It didn't help the Hp Amd pc I ordered it for it seems the mother board is dead. Hopeing the power supply was bad I put it in another pc I thought would never go again and well it's going GOOD for now. Don't trust the green light or l.e.d. Also the Hp Amd pc power supply is dead.
Cons: So when I opened the box, the tab which locks the main power connector to the motherboard was broken and floating around in the box. Second, the thing is VERY LOUD. Third, it just looks poorly constructed. I do not trust it.
Summary: This was the first (and Last!) cheapo PSU I will ever buy. Probably work fine for a Celeron or P4-478 or Sempron... something that pulls no more than 200W totat...
Cons: Died after 3 weeks use pulling constant 285W verified with KilloWatt meter. Cost more to ship it back than it's worth, so chop off the wires/connectors for spares, pull fan for whatever and junk the rest. I know it was loaded hard... but it's rated 300W...
Summary: Contacted COOLMAX. They provided RMA. I had to pay for shipping to them, and would be required to pay for shipping and handling if they decided to replace it. Read for yourself: We will not be responsible for lost shipment; refused shipments; no receiver; and with wrong address provided. User is responsible to contact freight forwarder/carrier regarding this matter. User will be charged shipping and handling fee if RMA replacements are to be resent.
