Summary: I built a new PC for work and I leave it on 24/7 for remote access. One weekend our building was doing some work where the electricity was going to be shut off so I went in early to shut off all the computers. That afternoon I went back in to turn on the computers and when I tried to start mine the power supply let out a loud pop and a little smoke. Luckily after replacing the P.S. the computer is running fine but I'm dismayed by this as I used to be an Enermax fan.
Pros: It worked well for a little over 3 months. System: MSI CSM-B75MA-P45 mobo i7-3770 CPU GeForce GTS 450 1 SSD and 1 storage HD
Summary: Power supply would shutdown after 250 watt load was placed on the system, usually in about 1-3 min. RMA'ed the power supply and the second one has the exact same problem. Switch to a separate brand 500W power supply and that works fine.
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...
Summary: I'd given it 5 eggs if it wasn't for the rebate issue, they there wasn't a rebate on this I would have bought a different higher rated one.
Pros: A power supply that works for a decent price.
Cons: Only reason I selected this were the good reviews and $10 rebate, rebate was declined by 4myrebate.com.saying that dated receipt wasn't included, which they scanned and posted online when they received the rebate form. They have no phone number and don't reply to emails.
