Summary: Great PSU, Great price. Pushes my new rig right along.
Pros: Received this last Wednesday, and I put it in the new system I bought in pieces on here. Works really well, not an issue yet. It's quiet, and it pushes everything I've asked of it, including an R9-285, 125W Octocore CPU, and 3 traditional SATA drives. I really like the flat cables, they're easy t...
Cons: Umm... It was a little difficult to identify the 4+4 pin connector for CPU Power? I think that was the only issue, lol.

Summary: I bougt this because it looked great, but it is truly a solid, reliable Seasonic-made unit. I have been running an overclocked FX-8150 (4.6 GHz), and an overclocked 660ti (previously 6950 bios-update to 6970), along with 16gb of overclocked Corsair Vengeance, an SSD and two hard drives.
Pros: -Reliable -Quiet -Looks great -Plenty of juice for OC and SLI/Crossfire

Summary: After trying to get a replacement on their site and reading the review from another retailer that stated a customer got a doa unit and then the replacement was doa, I decided to just ship this back to newegg.
Pros: Nice look to it. Long cords. Nice packaging. Decent warranty.
Cons: Power supply did not work. RMA site on Xfx is just awful.
Cons: I selected this PSU for a new system build based on specs and many favorable reviews. Installation went well, and it powered the system through OS installation, updates, etc. I shutdown the system, unplug it from the wall and go on a trip for week only to return to a dead PSU. I followed the manu...
