weighs about 2 ounces

  • Summary: It is very light weight and I don't know how long it will last? The fan sounds like a fan , little higher rpm's than most I think , but I still can't hear it over my R7 260X. Keeps everything cool , I like it.
  • Pros: It moves air and runs cool. I've tried other top brands which are quieter and more wires , more expensive and run warm but this one you can hear see and feel the fan moving good amounts of air and the case and components stay cool. Powers everything and PCI card no problem.
  • Cons: None yet.

  • Summary: PSU went out in my old E5500. Picked up this one for 25$, it plugs right into the old slot and wham. Back from the dead. GJ COOLMAX.
  • Pros: Cheap Works beautifully 25$
  • Cons: A con is a reason to not buy it. If you need a small power supply, there is no reason to not buy this one.

Rebate ripoff

David C., Newegg
7 June 2012
  • Summary: I have been waiting almost 3 months for my rebate check and cannot get a reply to my inquiries. I usually do not buy items with rebates because most of th etime they are nothing but ripoffs but I trusted the Coolmax name, silly me.
  • Pros: It works and was cheap
  • Cons: Noisy and the rebate is apparently a ripoff.

Horrid PS

Jean I., Newegg

  • Summary: For breathing new life into a dead computer that does not require any more than 250 watts this supply is cheap and would probably be OK
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: This power supply cannot produce anything close to 400 watts. I needed a cheap dirty power supply to use on a HP upgrade and the price made it look attractive. The MSI vidio needed 380 watts minimum. I had tried a 300 watt supply that out performed this one. It is very lightly constructed and internal parts overrated. Thankfully it did not over voltage and fry the motherboard when it died. It simply shut down never to live again. Even though it arrived in a sealed box...

Too scared to use it

Rodney B., Newegg
31 January 2011
  • Summary: Stay away from CoolMax.
  • Pros: It was a good price after rebate.
  • Cons: I bought two of these back in 2007 but am too scared to use them after reading all the bad reviews left after I purchased mine. I just can't risk smoked my motherboard. I also do not believe the label that this supply is actually meets the Intel and AMD requirements considering the poor quality the actual customers are experiencing..
