Cable a little short for a full-ATX case, but I got it to work... barely. Otherwise, awesome PSU!

Summary: This is my 2nd of these 700W PSUs. I bought the first for my own computer build about 2-3 years ago now, I think. Haven't had any problems with it, and the price is super nice, so I bought another one for a computer build that I was doing for my brother for Christmas. However, while my case is a mid-ATX, his is a full ATX, and I found the cable that plugs into the MoBo to be almost too short (the PSU is bottom-mounted, while the port that it plugs into is way at the top...
Summary: When I bought this, it was cheaper than the 600w model, so needless to say it's got more power than I need. My only negative comment is that I have a bottom mount in my case, the problem there is the sata cables are oriented upside down, so I had to twist them, making them look terrible, lose space, and length in the cable.
Summary: It's alright, I probably should have done more looking into what I was getting, I'm not certain on longevity as I've only had it for about a week, seems to be running well. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good semi-modular power supply.
Summary: Good power supply. Fits my needs. Modular cables to prevent restricted airflow are nice. 8-Pin connector is at the top of my motherboard, so I had to opt for an extender to reach it through the back of my case, but not worried about that. Main issue for me is the rebate that was involved. Yes, I bought the PSU on the final day of the rebate, but OCZ enabled me to send the documentation in within 3 weeks of the final date.
Summary: This power supply was very easy to install. Since it is a modular design I did not have an issue of cord management inside of my computer. I went from 350 watts to this model and it works great. I did watch a couple of YouTube videos before I got started since I am no computer installer. The job took me about 15 minutes. I left the side panel off the computer once I had the unit installed just to do a power check and ensure all was working then I closed up the PC.
Summary: I have a 700W modular power supply, which I bought because I wanted to be able to minimize the amount of spare cords hanging around in my case. I'm powering a i5-2400k processor, 5400 RPM HD, SSD, DVD drive, and two GTX 550 Ti video cards, and power is not an issue. Neither is noise. Negatives: I bought a similar one for my mother-in-law and was DOA. It wouldn't power up at all, so we had to send it back.
Summary: This power supply is a good value. It has plenty of modular connectors, it is quiet, supplies plenty of power for my GTX560 Si graphics card and SoundBlaster card, etc. The modular connections are nice because you only connect what you need. The rest of the cords can stay in the nifty little zipper pouch that comes in the box. I'm not sure if it's necessary to provide a pouch, but it's a nice thought.
