Summary: I'll check back in when it dies unless i do first...in which case I've kept the felt bag and left instructions to be buried with it.
Pros: I bought this 6 years ago for an old core2 duo build and later put this in my i5 2500k build, Its been running games and idle nearly 24/7 through multiple power outages and surges. Ive probably only been using half its potential but It's time to blow out the cobwebs in it - gonna try some serious...
Summary: - Really crazy this thing is still kicking after so long. Feels like I can get a few more years out of it even now. Very impressed by this PSU and will probably only buy Corsair after having this.
Pros: - It will never die (jk). 7 years and this thing still runs perfect. - Very cool for a power supply. - Was overkill for my first rig, but I put the extra wattage to good use. Including my normal components I have 14 fans in my case. This thing supports them all. - Got it for a good price back then.
Cons: - Not modular, but not many were during its time.
Summary: I bought this PSU for my 2008 computer build (first build I did). The 750w was overkill for that build, but I wanted something that I could upgrade parts and not need to change out. It's been 7 years and it's still going strong.
Pros: - 7 years and still going strong (installed in 2008) - 750 watts - On/Off Switch
Cons: - Not modular, but wasn't going to big cable management anyways. - Nothing else
Summary: overall, this thing has survived constant 24/7 operation in buildings with poor wiring for nearly 5 years. It's outlived the original motherboard and has yet to so much as hiccup. I paid 140 for it and as far as i'm concerned, it's been worth every penny.
Pros: strong, reliable, and built to last. Cords are long enough to do whatever you need with them.
Cons: not modular, and with long cords, cable management can be a bit of a hassle
Summary: I should've written this a long time ago, but I also enjoy seeing reviews from other users who've used a product for multiple years and still have it going strong - as I have this. Definitely planning on buying Corsair when I someday need a beefier PSU.
Pros: Got it at a great price, it comes with plenty of what you'd want (extra modular 8-pin PCI-E for running dual card or beast card setups), it's given me no issues whatsoever since installation and is now serving its second rig. It has nice long cables even for HUGE bottom-mount cases like mine (Ros...
Cons: None, honestly. It wasn't free? When you have a solid PSU that handles everything you throw at it, there's no room for complaints.
