Summary: So I went cheap I admit it and paid the price. It didn't last 3 months before shutting down my PC when any load was put on it. When I did a reboot my MB, an ASUS Z97-AR would warn about a surge in the PSU.
Summary: My old OCZ 700W PSU died so I picked up one of these locally. I have another Coolmax 600W that's been running an ESX server for about a year and I thought I'd give this model a try. So far the PSU has held up well with zero issues.
Pros: Quiet and Stable. Plenty of connections. Partially modular. Supports Crossfire.
Summary: have run this now for a year .. zero issues, good price point .. ... msi gaming 970, gigabyte 7800 series 4 gig video, dual tuner tv tuner - fm radio card.. 8 gig G Skill rip jaws 1600.
Pros: Set and forget.. partial modular - reduces clutter so you only use what you need.. cables wrapped and plenty long enough for full tower case, even routed behind motherboard (Azza Solano 1000 case).. connectors nice quality, and all I'll ever need for this build. zero issues since installed.
Cons: wasn't installed as my first choice.. old power supply spiked and killed half my rig...
Summary: PSU cannot hold steady power for over two minutes. My PC shuts down before I can even set up the BIOS. The box doesnt come with any screws or even a manual. The braided cables are messy and look awful. Please do not buy this, get a quality unit.
Cons: Used it for about 2 hrs to install some software on a new pc build. Loud pop and the smell of burnt wires just as I was finishing up for the night. I knew after reading the reviews I was rolling the dice. Looks like I rolled snake eyes. RMA'd it (Newegg was awesome) and spend a little extra for a...
Summary: MAke sure u give enough power to your PC, I had to replace my backup UPS unit cuz was a cyberpower 1350APR 800W and my PC shuts off randomly while gaming. I ordered a new UPS (((CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series GreenPower UPS CP1500AVRLCD 1500VA 900W 8 Outlets UPS))) unit giving my rig 900W and my...
Pros: This PSU is a beast for gaming. Works so good! enough for my AMD 8 core vishera.
Pros: Still strong and stable after 18 months. Quiet, modular, efficient. Most cables were a perfect length for a full atx tower.
Cons: 12v 4 pin MoBo connector wasn't long enough to route from bottom mount PSU through the right panel cable management system in my full atx tower without pulling tight. Had to buy a 6" extension to relieve the tension. If that cable was 2" longer I would have given 5 stars.
