Summary: While changing cases I noticed that one of the cables was wedged in between the casing and the hole where they exit and pinched the wire (one of the SATA cables to be exact), which caused and intermittent connection problem and has rendered the cable useless.
Pros: What can I say? It's a decent power supply that isn't worth the 90$ price tag. It is quiet and has lasted a little over a year without any internal problems (see other thoughts). Efficiency is above average.
Cons: First off is the price. At 90$ it isn't cheap and in terms of price / performance ratio it doesn't fulfill ones expectations. Cheap capacitors, voltage regulation is not that good ( +12v rail jumps from 12.168v down to 11.902v when under load which isn't good while the +5v rail goes up in voltage...
Summary: Not really much to say about this except it does the job it's supposed to do. I have this installed in a system running an r9 280/FX 6300, 1HDD, 1 SSD, A11 arctic cooler, 2 fans and 1 DVD burner. No problems at all.
Pros: Runs extremely quiet, enough power for a R9 280.
Summary: These PSU's would look good powder coated white!
Pros: Quieter then my old Thermatake! Runs so cold I think my desk is starting to frost! Haswell and works for SLI with no issues! I have built a few of my costumers PC's with this power supply and they have no issues. Best budget PSU made by a pretty trustworthy company.
Summary: My case isn't massive by any means, and I had a hard time routing some of my cables. For a non-modular PSU, you would think it would have more cables long enough to reach around most cases. Will definitely be replacing it.
Pros: 1. Relatively cheap.
Cons: 1. Cables are pretty short. 2. Mesh around cables is ugly and ruins any theme in a build.
