Summary: Have had it operatoing since install some seven months ago and it works every time. It's been a while since I built a tower and I like the fact that it has adaptable install for the diferent motherboards. I wonder if it would power up two boards in one tower? Don't know why...just wondered.
It works well depending on what computer you're going to use

Summary: not heard good things about this power supply, but personally to me is working well at the moment, if you would recommend whether to use a large equipment used for overclocking and stuff like that is better buy another power supply . I play games and works well.
Summary: Bought this power supply and 7 weeks later it physically smoked out in my brand new and very pricy custom built PC one night, and I mean I heard a loud pop followed by smoke. I almost had a heart attack. Lucily I was in the room at the time to pull the plug and after removing this piece of junk and instaling another supply to check and see if by god grace my new pc survived, I was glad it appears at the momment the pc still works.
Summary: What I should have done was google this little power supply first. The reviews are horrible. However I hadnt researched it at all at first. 650w 49.99 Great deal I thought. Heres how my expierence has been. First off I use this power supply for my work and I play World of Warcraft. So ive installed it in a new PC. I first bought parts and used the new parts in my old PC first to test them and make sure everything worked ok.
Summary: This power supply is definately worth it's money. Provides efficient power and has a huge fan that helps with keeping your case cool. Very quiet too. I have my case sitting right next to me at chest level and I have the side off and I cannot hear the power supply over my (fairly) quiet cpu fan. I have not had this model too long so I cannot speak on it's longevity, but I've had other power supplies by Diablotek and they have always lasted.
Summary: This PSU is a 12v dual rail. Not made for gaming PC's. Could cause shut downs while gaming. Tested and confirmed as I got it to shut down on me once while gaming. If you have a gaming PC I would recommend getting a single 12v rail PSU instead. For a non-gaming machine im sure this PSU will work just fine.
If you think you are a buyer- DON'T! Shop around. See the article below.

Summary: I bought 2 of these PSU's to run a high-end Dual Xeon workstation and a Dual Xeon server. I thought- Great! all the cables I need, and power to spare. Then BOTH rear power switches failed when clicked on and off (2 CYCLES) before I had even installed them. I should have sent them back ASAP, but I had them in my hands, and figured "cheap switch - that can be bypassed if need be...what is there that could go wrong with solid state circuitry of this rating?
Summary: I bought this for a computer I built for someone and would have to say that it accomplishes its goal as expected. This unit has also seemed to me, at least so far, to be very well built. When I first got it, it was set too 240 volts and I live in the USA I was not aware of this and even with this voltage set incorrectly it powered on the computer with no problems thats what I call robust!
