Summary: I really like the design and look of this PS, and the modular capability. XFX is supposed to be good quality also...but...I had this about a week, and one day I'm in the other room and I hear a very loud snap. Like someone threw a rock against the side of the house. Later that evening I go to power up my PC and it cant do anything...wont even go into bios. I thought mobo, maybe cpu was bad..
Summary: I replaced a 750w pc power and cooling unit with this. The 750w PCP&C could power my SLI 670s just fine but I figured I was skirting the edge of required power so I would upgrade to be safe... WRONG. When I enabled SLI using this power supply the screen would shake and I would get video pausing and other problems.
Summary: this power supply is top notch 850w, quiet, 4xpci express cables so great for crossfire or sli, loads cables for drives and any thing else u want hook up to a pc i cant fault the actual psu, but i give amazon 1 star on this because i was thinking i was buying a brand new psu,but i got what looked to me a refurbished unit,looked inside the psu through the fan vent on top and i could see what looked like replaced parts and traces of repairs[ie] cable ties and black marker...
