Fan failure

Thomas D., Newegg
29 September 2015
  • Summary: Have read in a previous online site that there was a way to extend fan, opened PS and fan barely moved under pressure. Have bottle of oil used on RC car bearings, removed tag on fan with little rubber plug attached, put 2 drops in and spun fan, it loosened it to spin freely, closed case and powered...
  • Pros: For the cost, it supports an older OS box that is waiting to be retired. Had not had a problem with this brand on prior replacements.
  • Cons: Purchased in February 2015, last week noticed case was hot and smelled like an over heated pan. Checked and fan seized and not spinning. Due to cost of PS said oh well, not returning for replacement.

Utilitarian

JOHNC C., Newegg

  • Summary: NOT FOR FULL SIZED TOWERS!
  • Pros: Standard power supply nothing to brag about. I have used several coolmax power suppies and founds them to be reliable.
  • Cons: The cables are rather short and I can see a lot of applications where this could cause an issue. Even in my small form factor case the the lead to the PSU was just barely long enough to reach.

weighs about 2 ounces

Anonymous, Newegg

  • 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.

User Review

  • 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 .., Newegg
23 November 2011
  • 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 int...

Cheaply made

21st C., Newegg

  • Summary: Ther are better PSUs on NewEgg.
  • Pros: Good price
  • Cons: It looks very cheap. The metal housing is thin and the wires are also very thin. There is only ONE SATA connector.
