works

Mark C., Newegg
22 July 2014
  • 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.

budget power

Karl M., Newegg
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Took 2 wks to get a replacement, AND had to pay for return shipping. Lesson learned, buy a little better power supply
  • Pros: Powers up.
  • Cons: First one was DOA. Quit after 10 seconds, and you could smell the burn. Very lucky it did not fry the other components.

Killed my Super Combo build

John M., Newegg
4 July 2014
  • 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.

DOA Nightmare

Bytes S., Newegg
25 June 2014
  • Pros: It did its job of providing power but only for about an hour; then gave up its ghost. DOA.
  • Cons: DOA nightmare, return label took 9 days to reach destination. Approaching one month and still have not received replacement. Slow RMA process.

Weak 12v rails lead to it's death

Riyo M., Newegg
14 March 2014
  • 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.

Works

Ryan J., Newegg
6 March 2014
  • Summary: It even lights up a pretty blue led color inside the case that no one will ever see...
  • Pros: Easy replacement, worked as it should.
  • Cons: rebates kill me! I hate rebates! Why cant they just discount it.......or give us an option to take 1/2 the rebate instantly.
