Great Power Supply

Brad P., Newegg
19 January 2015
  • Summary: I was really nervous to purchase this as a refurbished unit, and some of the reviews were quite negative. But I have been impressed with the performance so far, and have no regrets on the purchase. I'll just cross my fingers for a while...
  • Pros: Bought this for really cheap and I love it. Powers my entire AMD system with no issues what-so-ever.
  • Cons: It makes a funny whistling noise once in a while, but you have to pay close attention to hear it. It's not packaged as if it was new, which is my experience with most refurbished products I purchase.

Zero RPM Mode

Christopher S., Newegg
5 December 2014
  • Summary: Do your research!
  • Pros: - High wattage - Refurbished price was a great deal, the product looks brand new - Works great, stays cool. I have plenty of high power components in my PC and I don't even use half of this things power.
  • Cons: - Zero RPM Mode I don't think Zero RPM mode is a good idea. The fan should at least run at the lowest voltage it can before stalling. It seems like all they did with this feature was to allow the voltage for fan speed to drop below the stall point, so it basically just sit's there constantly stal...

User Review

Ted_K, NCIX.com
3 April 2014
  • Summary: This power supply has SLi compatibility. Great if you need pretty much every wire on the PSU. If not, just have a good case with space for wire management and it'll be perfect.
  • Pros: Powerful, Quiet, 80+ Bronze
  • Cons: Not Modular

Nice Unit

Michael G., Newegg
23 December 2013
  • Summary: Would buy it again.
  • Pros: This was my first time building a complete system, and it worked great. Worked first time out of the box, no issues.
  • Cons: Not completely modular, so I did end up with a couple of unneeded cables I had to hide. Fortunately, my case (Corsair Air 540) made that easy. Could be an issue in a tight build, I suppose.

Great PSU But Not Fully Modular

John Marston, Amazon

  • Summary: Not fully modular as the description claims, but still an amazingly stable, quiet, and efficient power supply that comes with all cable you need and none you don't.

Not entirely modular but great performance

Lest, Amazon
17 November 2013
  • Summary: I thought it was going to be completely modular and it wasn't but I have to say that it's been great so far. I was able to connect my GTX 770 SC Graphics Card but I'm going to need to upgrade to a different power supply in order to add a secondary graphics card for SLI.
