SO many cables!
Brian Anderson, Amazon

Summary: This power supply unit has a wealthy amount of juice running through it, and does precisely what it is designed to do. My only complaint is that its overabundance of power cables near the bottom are making cable management in my Antec 900 case quite difficult.
Summary: This power supply may be fine but it has so many cables that the unused ones take up a huge amount of room. The cables are long, covered black, and appear to be of reasonable quality (one SATA didn't seem right but plenty of others). Unless you need that many SATA etc.
Summary: -I'm giving this 4 stars or egg things giving it the benefit of the doubt because although the PSU on both of my machines started making noise because of their fan, the PSUs were of different brands and the fans that started to rattle were of different sizes witch leads me to believe that i just...
Pros: -when it works its great -good costumer service
Cons: -slightly too many cables but its my fault for being cheep and not going modular -after only a couple of weeks the fan started rattling and only got worse (stangely enough this also happened on the cpu of my other build) however when replaced it worked perfectly, i also might add their costumer s...
Summary: could not send back because of package rma process would take forever so i will have to enjoy my used item
Pros: great power supply has more cables then i need but more is better than less tell you whats unacceptable is the box the the item was shiped in was fine but the box the supply was in looked like cr*p beat all up no plastic wrap around item at all looks like a returned item or open box item or maybe...
Summary: This is a tremendous power supply. I have had it in my system for about three months now and it has been the best power supply that I have ever had. However, for not much more money (or for the same amount of money) you can get the same quality in a modular power supply so that you don't have a lot...
Summary: Very happy with this purchase. Although cable management was a pain, i like the amount of power connector options provided. The 2x 6+2 pins are great, happy not to have to use adapters for running dual cards.
Pros: Asthetically pleasing 2 x 6+2 pins with 2 x 6 pins (great for dual cards) shrink wrapped cables Sata power connectors in two different sizes (long and short) Comes with "belt" to tie up unused wires. Air leaves the back of the power supply instead of going into the case. Air intake fan is very qu...
Cons: Although having alot of cables is nice. Aesthetically the extras clutter up the case. Would have been much nicer to have been partially modular. Seems to run hot over extended periods of time, although this has not developed into any other issue. In fact I joke that it acts as a foot warmer.
