Bad bearings - Should have RMA'd to EVGA straight away

Carl F., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: Got to replace PSU which would "Windows Kernel event ID 41 error" when playing some games. This PSU which was 250W less than the 750 worked fine ... , However mine developed bad grinding sound within the first week. Which as I understand it they would accept a swap out at no expense to myself. I was so relieved to have working albeit noisy psu that I didn't contact EVGA for a swap out.
  • Cons: I never returned the PSU, as it seemed to work fine with the exception of the grinding of the fan. But my hard drive failed after noticing some "Windows Kernel event ID 41 error's" which basically mean the computer turned off without shutting down, whcih could be attributable to a problematic psu or the fact my hard drive was toast due to the same errors occuring with the old PSU ... go figure, however a PSU which sounds like a 15year old dodge is probably not a good ...

Decent power

Michael H., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: was perfect for what I needed.
  • Pros: I had a bunch of spare parts sitting around that needed a case and pwr supply. This PS worked great in that configuration. The cables are all very long which was worked out well because the case I bought has the power supply mounted on the bottom.
  • Cons: none

DOA

Samantha F., Newegg
1 March 2015
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Was pretty much DOA. Returned it and exchanged for a different brand. I know DOA's happen. But it stinks when you're the one it happens to!

User Review

QUINCY D., Newegg
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Seems to be an isolated issue. Would probably buy again.
  • Pros: Delivers power Decent number of cables for the price Fan was indeed very quiet for the first 3 months
  • Cons: Fan started grinding after 3 months. Power-wise it's fine, it just started making an obnoxiously loud noise and I had to replace it after the RMA period. The way the PSU is constructed makes it impossible to access the fan to replace it without cutting metal.

Good

ANDRE B., Newegg
22 January 2015
  • Summary: If you are buying this for a mid tower, consider the fact that it's not modular and that the overall wires will need space.
  • Pros: - Easy to install in a mid tower atx - No noise at all, very amazing
  • Cons: - Instructions are very poor if you are not familiar when changing stuff in your computer.
