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

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.
Became faulty after 6 months, no refund, no contact with seller.

Summary: After the product became faultly (noise coming from fan, very high temperatures) after more or less 6 months, I contacted XFX looking for a refund or replacement. The producer sent me back to the seller and they asked me to pass on the PSU to them and they'll take care of the refund/replacement.
Summary: Ordered this PSU about a week ago and arrived yesterday, item arrived in perfect condition in suitable packaging. very easy to install, and the black sleeved cables makes it look a whole nicer inside your rig. I have It paired with a AMD radeon R7 250 2GB boost, and it seems to be handling it well.
Summary: The PSU looks great and runs quietly. I was pleased with the 5 year warranty and suprised to see that it can power my hungry AMD FX 6300 and Radeon 7850 without any problems (so far) Some might recommend the similarly priced CX430 over this PSU, or perhaps the modular variety.
Summary: Looks the part, the only criticism i could possibly think of would be that it's slightly annoying how if you want the fan to be upwards facing, the XFX logo is upside down. It works, it seems reliable enough, it provides enough power to my overclocked FX 6300 and overclocked 7850.
Summary: This PSU was fantastic for about 18 months, until it developed an annoying random ticking sound. It appears to be a component on the circuit board rather than the cooling fan. XFX support is hopeless. They take no responsibility and just direct you to the retailer.
Summary: I did a lot of research into what PSU to get for my new build and after finding this little beauty I snapped it up. It's quiet and powerful enough to run my 5 case fans, 1 HDD, 1 SSD, 7770 graphics card, 4130 AMD CPU overclocked to 4.5 ghz. Very impressed.
