Summary: my old a8n sli deluxe with opteron 185 with AMD 5870 would not start, used a power supply tester to find my silverstone 650 watt zeus went bad after 10 years. This was a good replacement for such an old system for a usable computer that is used for just a few nights a week.
Summary: I had recently purchased a GTX460. It didn't show video. Sent the card back thinking IT was defective. Then got a 6770. Same thing happened. Did some research. They require a PCIe connector that can deliver at least 40-41 Amps on the 12V rail. This PSU doesn't.
Pros: Cheap. Good for low budget builds and graphic cards NOT requiring PCIe power.
Cons: +12V1@20A, +12V2@20A on the PCIe connector. THAT IS BAD. This will most likely NOT power any of today's graphics cards. It wouldn't work on a GTX460 or a 6770.
Summary: This seems to be a quality build. Time will tell. It is overkill for my build but it was so cheap. The nice long cables can be a "pro" or "con" depending on your build. So far though , I would buy again if needed.
Pros: Seems quality built. Plenty of connectors. LONG cables. Very quiet. PCI-e connectors. PRICE!
Cons: LONG cables. You will need to do some tucking and zip ties IF you use Micro-ATX (as far as a case).
Summary: I just installed this power supply. I still have a 3.5 inch floppy drive in my system and found that the distance between the connector for the 3.5 floppy drive and the connection needed for the IDE hard drives was too short to reach. I could not connect both.
Summary: Installed this power supply about 2 weeks ago on my home pc. I usually leave my PC on overnight when downloading some heavy sized files. Aslo wanted to test check it out. Works like a charm. No issues and happy with purchase.
Summary: It used to cut off on me and I also smelt something as if it was burning. I since have changed the supply cord and have not been having a problem with it like I was. Not sure if that was the fix but it seems that way.
Summary: Got this in my pc, installed and connected all the wires right as I turn it on it smelled burnt. I thought it was just cause its new, but it never cool down the fan never worked. Went out and bought a new one after 2 days.I still need to return this.
