VERY GOOD AND SILENT

SAMUEL A., Newegg
31 March 2013
  • Summary: does a great job at running a ASRock FM2A75 PRO-4M with A-10.5800K with all settings overclocked and it does not even stutter~
  • Pros: very quiet and i get no hickups with everything overclocked like a total boss. will see if rebate shows up! haha
  • Cons: wish it was modular but then again it does a great job. and it did not fit my case. but it just sits on the rail but oh well. my fault!

Great PSU for a small case and a non-gaming build

Mr. N/A, Mwave.com
25 April 2012
  • Summary: A good option if you can find it for cheap and possibly with a rebate, since XFX almost always has some kind of deal like that going on.
  • Pros: PSU is a re-branded Seasonic of excellent internal quality. Everything you would need for a low-end gaming rig to a high-end 125W CPU with integrated graphics.
  • Cons: This might be one of the products that does not have OCP featured in the monitoring integrated circuit, but instead just OVP and UVP. Would suggest doing further research and looking for an online review with a full teardown to find out whats inside.

Quality psu as always with xfx

Christopher M., Newegg
10 February 2012
  • Pros: Never had a problem with xfx. It must be a seasonic rebranded. The rebate is a good deal.
  • Cons: cables could be a few inches longer. Sata on dvd drives were hard to manage.

Runs great

Anonymous, Newegg
29 January 2012
  • Summary: I wish the wires were a little longer for cable management on a mid tower case (Again, might just be the positioning of the connectors on the mobo).
  • Pros: Runs a ASUS Radeon hd 3870. Fan is very quite, and well-cooled. Nice quality when compared to a cheap 20$ diablo tech PSU.
  • Cons: Stiff wires. Wires are slightly short-off when trying to do cable management on an NZXT classic gamma case ( Might be do to the positioning of the connectors on the mobo).

  • Pros: when i bought this and unboxed it i thought i was going to get something that looked and preformed like poop (had to think of another word) for a 450 Wat but it looks nice in my PC it is a very solid design and i have had no problems with it so far, its very quite.
  • Cons: its not molar but i don't see that cause for a egg

XFX has bad customer service, Beware!!

Roger O., Newegg
8 January 2012
  • Summary: * Rest of the story; Oh yeah, I had to actually call him after his first response that the PSU must be the problem; I kept replying and he would not respond, so I called and guess who answered?Same dude I was chatting with by computer.
  • Pros: Product looked good and was quiet, When it worked
  • Cons: I'm a MCSE, A+ certified , Computer Engineer, second generation electronics Tech, so believe me when I say I wouldn't buy from a company again, take heed. This is the first PSU I have ever purchased that would actually turn the computer off if you touched the case, just the slightest touch would ...

Very solid power supply

Greg W., Newegg
11 November 2011
  • Summary: Time will tell. The PS is built well and voltages are actually within spec. Made a huge difference in my customers desktop that we took a failed Raidmax out of. Seriously, I think I will buy more of these-especially if they hold up for a while...
  • Pros: Lets see: 34 amps from a 450 watt PS? It's actually a Seaxonic power supply? Covered cables that are not bad to work with?
  • Cons: Not really a negative, but if you are replacing a PS in an older PC that still uses molex connectors, there is only one rail. If your computer is modern and needs a PS, no problem.
