Cons: System randomly powering down at first build. Tested power supply with generic tester, and it was good - but of course a tester can't simulate load. Swapped PSU for a different one and all is good. Tried to put it back just to be sure and the system powers down every 20 mins or so. Looked closely and found cracks in the fan blades - not sure if that is related. RMA to Newegg (and not so happy about paying the $15 return shipping either... may use an online retailer wi...
Pros: Just a word for those who haven't heard of Enermax. The company has had a great reputation for many years until about 5 or 6 years ago, someone slipped a bunch of bad voltage regulators into their shipment and out went a lot of PS that blew up or sparked when turned on.
Cons: From the looks of the reviews, they are continuing their quality reputation, Stuff happens, and stuff goes on.
Pros: Cables are plenty long enough for my mid tower case to run the cables behind the motherboard tray for cable management. Powers all 7 drives and AMD Athlon X2 4200+ with 2GB ram nicely in my Debian file server.
Cons: only 2 of the cables are sleeved. And poor sleeving at that. The sata and molex are not sleeved. Molex connector at the end of the sata connectors makes cable management a bit of a pain.
Pros: nice long cables. Quality build. This supply is much more sturdy than the one its replacing. Looks good, feels solid and heavy. I've got a tower case with bottom mounted supply. The old one barely reached, especially the processor connector at the other end of the MOBO. This one reaches everything with room to make neat bundles.
Cons: Not modular, but in this price range it's not expected. Not high efficiency.
Pros: I've installed a few of these in customer systems over the past month, they are Heavy (which is typically a sign of a quality power supply) and have nice thick cables (another high quality sign) the single large fan at the bottom makes this super quiet, and the voltage on the 12V lines (2 12 volt rails) are more then enough for light to medium duty systems (which fits 95% of my customers)
Cons: None really.. I guess the ONLY con is this is a 350watt power supply.. but as i said before, this is PERFECT for a light to medium duty system.
