Summary: I didn't think that all the problems I was having with, for example BSOD and random shut offs would have been attributed to the power supply but I was wrong. Since I put in a Seasonic x-850 I can't believe how much better my computer runs, night and day difference.
Summary: A great PSU, and it has been treating me well, but I don't know if I'd get a silverstone again.
Pros: I've raved about this PSU for a few years now. It's worked really well and held voltages well with decent overclocks.
Cons: The fan is dying after 3 years. I expect this is not uncommon (and not significant), but after contacting support they couldn't even direct me to a specific replacement. They just said NE would have one. I don't know the thickness or if its hard wired in? I'd have loved if they would have been a ...
Summary: Cords to long for most users. How about adding a few short molex cables? I have to 2' long cords that I don't need other than system fans..
Pros: Fully modular, clean power. Came with Tie-TIEs and some velcro thingys for cable management.
Cons: This power supply is in dire need of soft-wound cabled for the PCI-E.. The rigidness forces user to bend the heck out of the cables just to but the door back on the case. This being said, there is a high probability that video cards or the cable itself could be damaged.
Summary: All in all this is a great deal for what you get.
Pros: Reasonable price for the wattage and fully modular. There was plenty of times while making it look pretty in my case I had to disconnect reconnect & it saved time and space in the end. The fan has been very quite for me even under load. Most of the cables are very long if not longer than most wou...
Cons: The 24pin motherboard connector was almost too short for my case, I had to settle with having the psu fanside facing up' instead of oriented down with my filtered case vent. My case a mid tower Lian li.
Summary: I bought this PSU in June and had been using it in my rig for around 6 months. During the last 2 months of its life, it was ridiculously stubborn and wouldn't even turn on without me having to open up my rig, disconnect and reconnect the power plugs.
Pros: - Pretty good wattage per buck ratio - Fully modular - Fairly quiet operation
SILVERSTONE ST85F-P 850W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Summary: Replaced my 600w Silverstone power supply with this one, since I was upgrading to 770 sli, I needed more juice. I chose this one since I had Silverstone's short cable kit installed, all I had to do was swap power supplies and didn't touch my cabling.
Pros: Quiet, high power supply, fully modular, fits a micro atx case (Silverstone sugo sg09)
Summary: The reason I am posting this review as I am going to be buying another of these as this morning there was a loud bang in my bedroom, so loud my ears were ringing. I then realized with apprehension that there was an acrid burning smell coming from the vicinity of my desk.
Pros: First one lasted around 2.5 years, had it replaced under warranty due to capacitor aging. I was running dual quad-core Opteron 8347s with dual 8800GTs in SLI at the time. The second one lasted over 4 years and has been faithfully powering my computer w/o any issues.
Cons: None, I paid $269.99 for this PSU back in late 2007 would do so again.
Summary: Really disappointed that this happened. I purchased this power supply for a gaming computer that i built in early December. Nothing big, two gtx 460s, 16 gb of ram, i7-3820 processor, and single monitor so i don't think i burned it out. Hoping that i am just the unlucky 1 of 1000 to get the bad egg.
