Summary: I use my PC 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and everytime my old psus failed every year or so from the use. I bought this one 4 years ago and its still working. 100% recommended buy. Edit: After 5 years of use, issues arose and the PSU failed under load.
Pros: Excellent PSU, clean power no hiccups, using it 24/7 for 5 years finally failed. Still for a PSU this is a lot of time, recommended buy
Cons: Maybe that is not modular, so you have a lot of cables inside of your computer. Failed after 5+ years.
Summary: Power supply worked great for 5+ years. Powered my computer with dual video cards with no issues. Bought this in May, 2010. A couple of months ago, my computer would not shut down properly. Windows would show it was shut down, but all of the fans on the computer would still run.
Pros: Worked reliably for 5+ years
Cons: After 5 years (after the warranty expired, of course) issues arose
Cons: Started having mechanical clicking at startup or when cold at around 3 years of age. Started groaning under cold start temps this past winter. Just had to RMA it, which should be a bad review, but it has a 5 year warranty, which is boss.
Summary: I bought this psu in January of 2010. Still working great to this day. I haven't tried crossfire with current setup, afraid it might fry it. I had an evga 850w that died on me. Using this PSU till it is rmaed.
Pros: Plenty of connectors, worked great on crossfired 7950's oced for 3+ years and oced 2500k to 4.5ghz.No issues or fluctuations, freezing etc... Currently running 5820k at 4.5ghz and single 7950 (unsure if it would take crossfire).
Cons: died and took out random usb hardware valued at over $150 and might have token out the rest of my internal hardware as well and might have been the reason my computer had weird hanging issues for two years
