Summary: I own a 800D case and it's a bit tight getting the 12V Motherboard cable attached. It was a tight fit and hasn't caused any structural damage on both motherboards I've used since owning this PSU.
Pros: The gold certification really does make a difference. I noticed about a $5 difference on my power bills once I got this. It's been working flawlessly for over two years now and will pay for itself should it last another 2.
Cons: Price (but you get what you pay for), however it should pay for itself over time.
Summary: You know you are getting a quality product when you unbox a corsair power supply. The packaging for this PSU was simply amazing. The powersupply comes in a cloth bag and the cables come with a nice pouch too that I use for holding computer parts.
Pros: -Bought this PSU well over 2 years ago and it is still running my gaming PC flawlessly. -80PLUS Gold -Quiet, I can't even hear it running -Fully modular, only use the cables you need for your system, this is a great spave saver -Beautiful PSU with rock solid build quality
Summary: Great PSU, but if you're going the Haswell way, or just have some extra money, get the upgraded version of this, the AX860 or AX860i, the exact same PSU except it has 80PLUS Platinum, supports Haswell's low-power states, and is black and red instead of gold and red.
Cons: Cables seemed a little short at first, but with proper routing they'll be fine. There are on instructions on which cables go where on the PSU, only which way plugs into the PSU and which way plugs into the components... took me awhile to figure out which space was for what cable on the PSU.
Summary: Replaced an Antec 750 not modular and it is my backup. Nothing wrong with it but I like having a reliable backup as well.
Pros: I have enjoyed the responsiveness of this power supply. I handles my computer well and then some. I have the following rig: 945 3.0 Phenom, EVGA GT560 Ferme, 8 gig Corsair Vengeance, Black WD 1 t, Blue Caviar WD 500 gig, Asus Motherboard M5A97. Power supply is quiet. Don't know it is there.
