Pros: Works well for the budget builder and the lights are cool.
Cons: 8 pin atx connector was a little short to reach the mother board. 2 extra inches would have made a hugh difference. Had to order a $5 extender cable. PSU came in a DIY bundle, a little surprising that no one else noticed this before. PSU worked, good value for a non modular unit.
Summary: Not much to say on this. This PSU conked out before the initial install of the OS was complete. Build was MINIMAL. Only had a stick of RAM and HD installed. Video card wasn't even installed yet.
Pros: The pictures look good
Cons: It died before the initial OS install was even complete.
Summary: A combined 31 amperage isn't much especially considering most CPU's also draw from the 12v rail now and can go up to nearly 200 watts if I understand correctly. Along with a GPU that's already drawing nearly 250 from a single v rail, it can quickly overdraw what it takes leading to a short life span.
Pros: I got it on a sale and it looked pretty. Powered my system for as long as it was alive.
Cons: Worked for a few months then died a smoky death. The 12v rails are rated at a low amperage. I didn't know what rails were when I bought this. Had I known, I would have stayed away. Also, if you're gonna overclock, expect to not have this PSU for very long. However, it's fine to make a basic PC looks pretty.
