Summary: Fantastic power! This things keeps pouring it out and is doing great. I've rebuilt two gaming rigs around this thing and it works great. (FYI, Friends don't let friends burn out their graphics cards.
Pros: Not all cables must be used, which helps reduce the amount of wires in my case.
Cons: One of the PCI-E connectors doesn't fit my video card, so I had to use one of the extra modular cables to hook my video card up, which clutters up my tower in an unnecessary way, this costs it 2 eggs as the REASON I bought a modular power supply was so that I didn't have to use extra cables, but I do anyway because one of them was not formed properly.
Summary: I cannot fault the product at hand for how it died as it has gone through hell and back with me. Extreme temperatures that would actually cause frost buildup on things if they weren't running constantly when our heater went out and couldn't afford to replace it; almost all of winter under this fact. Followed by a blazing-hot summer in a house with no A/C. I knew going in that I was going to kill this thing and it wasn't going to be pleasant.
Pros: *Easy to install and configure to fit my needs. *Adds another level of excellent airflow in smaller cases *Fan speed doesn't affect the sound given off by the power supply when under heavy loads. *LED Glow is a nice, happy medium and doesn't cause eye strain/annoyance if your case is facing a non-traditional direction or in an odd location. *Handles constant running like it was nothing. *Performs exceptionally under stressful situations caused by external sources; var...
Cons: *The first one I owned died in a very unsettling manner, as it gave off a high-pitched screaming sound, followed by a crack and a pop, shutting my system off. Woke me up faster than any alarm clock ever has, though...
Summary: Don't have them yet, I am still building my system
Pros: IT SEEMS THAT THE POWER SUPPLY IS WELL BUILT. I purchased it to use it in an Antec 1200 v3 case. The 24 pin power cable just made it. The 8 pin power cable for the mobo, was way too short. Lucky for me that I had an extension cable and was able to complete the connection. I will update this review as soon as I will start using the system.
Cons: Power cables too short for my Antec 1200 V3 case. If you intend to use this P/S in a full size cas, make sure you have extension cables 24 and 8 pin.
Pros: After my previous PSU continued to shut off my computer for an unknown reason, I decided to go with a more reliable brand. And at a great sale of $105 (not including rebate), how could I pass it up? This PSU has been an absolute savior. Runs for a minute after system shutoff to remove heat from system, provides great power, has everything I need or will probably ever need.
Cons: It wasn't free. Yeah, no problems that I know of!
