Summary: i also owned a 750 of the same line that i liked. it died on me and took my cpu cooler with it prior to this (thus the back up). i bought the larger one just for overkill and easy swap, same cables n such. too bad those cables were different anyway. in the end im dissapointed and recommend you avoid these. also, i think seasonic should get more involved with xfx to ensure their own reputation isnt tarnished.
Pros: plenty of power for me

I put in an older power supply and everything works just fine on my computer

Summary: This product was dead on arrival. I plugged it in and it made a loud pop then it wouldn't supply enough power to start the computer I'd just assembled. I'm just lucky that it didn't fry any other components with it. I put in an older power supply and everything works just fine on my computer. It was past it's 30 day return window after I put my computer together so I guess I'm stuck with a $180 paperweight.
