Summary: 8 freakin years guys, pushing it to its limits.
Pros: Owned this PSU for 8 years (eight!!!) and I have never had an issue. My computer was on almost 24/7 for those 8 years. I started with just 3 HDD's and when I retired my faithful supply I was running 9 HDD's and 1 SSD (along with my mobo, case, etc) I thought for sure I was going to blow this litt...
Cons: Very few SATA power plugs. I needed to purchase the 4 pin MOLEX to SATA adaptors (a couple bucks). It has just one big trunk of cables and is not modular. Making pretty cable management hard.
Summary: This PSU has been in a budget build PC since 2010. It is bottom mounted in the case. It had soda pop spilled down through it. A fuse blew. I am an electronic tech. so was able to repair it. It is still working, but I'm sure the warranty is shot.
Pros: 400 Watts is enough for a budget build. This is a quality PSU.
Cons: $55 seems a little high for 400 watts. But for good quality, I guess we shouldn't complain... No eggs taken off!
Summary: Went from a (Pentium)E2200, 3X 1TB WD hd and a 3870 to a C2Q Q6600, 2 more ram sticks, a GTX 460 and another harddrive! I just knew that its a quality product and will not fry my equipment when it gave up.
Pros: Great PSU for the price, great/clean dc current, PFC, Everything i needed for the media computer/house file server i was building
Cons: after a whole 1 1/2 years of great and problem free service, i got some parts to upgrade the server and i knew that it was going to be too much for this 400w psu to handle.
Summary: I initially bought a Rosewill PSU and it fried several components. I spent a little more and bought one of these. 2 years later, everything is running smoothly. Big thumbs down to Rosewill. Big thumbs up to Corsair.
Pros: Has given me no issues for almost 2 years. Components are high quality and the cables are wrapped to keep things neat inside the case. Plenty of connections for my purposes, too.
Summary: I bought this a little while ago for a build that never went through. I finally got a chance to use it in a build and it's awesome. Not trying to power Crossfire 7970s with an i7 3960X, but for a budget supply meant to power a nice, efficient PC, it's pretty excellent.
