Pros: Fans don't turn on until a low to medium load(I think 60%?). When they do turn on they're a little loud, but the distance between my ear and the case is less than a foot so I can hear everything.
Cons: I expected it to be fully modular especially since I was going to buy the RM1000 which is fully modular but was out of stock for 2 weeks till i got fed up, and bought this one, which according to PRICE and the way Corsair PSU's are bracketed on their website, HX series fall below AX series, and RM fall below AX, and HX respectively. HX should be fully modular. But eh whatever.
Summary: My PSU was maybe running for 3-6 hours a day during the week, about 15+ during the weekend, sometimes staying on for the entire weekend. But towards it's end days, it never showed any sign of weakness. It was just that one day..it wouldn't turn on. Sad? I'd like to think so.
Pros: This is a fantastic PSU. Plenty of power for plenty of fun. Was more then I really needed, but at most I probably was running it around 45-55% during it's whole life. Now for cons.
Cons: 1.5 Years later.. While it has been an outstanding PSU, it's life with me was run short when me and my unannounced someone was planing to do some gaming. Mind you she is new to gaming so was excited. But wait! My computer wouldn't turn on...so i took her PSU (power of ownership, it's really mine) and put it in mine, and it worked. I put my PSU in her pc, and nothing.... So I switched them out again. So I decided on a new PSU. Now for other thoughts.
Summary: I bought this somewhere else, actually a slive cert hx1050. but almost same thing. not sure why nobody review this yet, it should be a popular psu. anyways, I had to move from hx750 to hx1050 as power shortage strike my mod like heart attack. so far hx1050 has been working for me over two month, no complain. Actually i have no complain for both hx750 and hx1050, it's just 750w no longer good enough as i beef up my mod too much.
Pros: 1. stable power source, 2. looks nice, 3. nice sleeved cable provided for diff need.
Summary: The BAD: Passar inte alls till Fractal Design XL, skruvhålen sitter helt fel :( The GOOD: I princip ljudlös, hur mycket kraft som helst och bra kablar. Slutsats: Hur f*n kan den inte passa till ett storsäljande fulltower som Fractal XL? Fick använda tejp och frigolitklossar för att få den någorlunda på plats.
