Quiet and efficient

Michael L., Newegg
19 February 2010
  • Pros: Easy to install, lots of connections, better power usage.
  • Cons: 80 plus always seems a touch more expensive, the rebate form was annoying and complicated. But I did get my refund.

A bit underpowered?

Sean H., Newegg
29 April 2009
  • Summary: I picked this up to try to quiet down an older computer, thinking 380W 80+ would be sufficient. I think this was actually louder than a 3 year old Antec it was replacing. At idle it seemed louder and as load and temp increased it just got louder.
  • Pros: Lots of connectors.
  • Cons: Fan thermal settings seem to run it a bit loud.

Not 20+4

James C., Newegg
3 March 2009
  • Summary: The description says that this is a 20+4 pin main connector however it is not. I purchased it without looking clearly at the pictures. It is a 24 pin, and has a p4 and p8 power connector. The main connector would work IF your mother board doesnt have extra stuff right around the power connector.
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: incorrect description, lists having a 20+4 connector instead of a 20 pin.

Power Efficent and Quiet

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: 380 Watts may be a little less then you want if you are running some powerfully duel graphic cards, but I bet this thing could handle mid-range SLI or Crossfire
  • Pros: Extremely Quiet Even at Peak Output Tube Cables keep the case Looking Clean Energy Efficient Rating saves on the Power Bill
  • Cons: No Problems and what more could you ask for out of a power supply
