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.
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.
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.
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
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...
