3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Not that expensive.
Quiet enough.

Cons: The SATA placement is just HORRIBLE. There's only 2 SATA power connectors and they are on the same line with a gap of about... maybe 6 or 7 inches. Basically they're designed for multiple hard drives I would guess... makes it rough for CD/DVD/etc players that also require SATA connectors.

Other Thoughts: The SATA connectors are just a huge problem with this PSU... I couldn't recommend it.

1 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: none

Cons: Lasted 6 months before it started powering off during intensive games killed one motherboard and two memory slots. Similar story to another one in a second machine do yourself a favor buy another brand. Put in a raidmax 530 and it seems to run quieter and my system is faster.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Awesome, been working in my build for about 4 months. Powers my GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard, XFX Radeon HD 5670. 2 500GB HDDs, and a dvd rw drive no problem. Cost was 40 bucks. Well worth it.

Cons: Ordered off another site, first one I received was DOA but sent it back and second one was and has been working since.

Other Thoughts: When it comes to things like this you really get what you pay for. Every now and then you luck out and buy something for a low price that the workmanship really shows on. This power supply seems to be one of those things. If things change I will post an update but for the moment I am a happy owner of a Coolmax VL-600B

2 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: pretty blue fan thats big and quiet

Cons: any time i would open a 3D application (ie wow cod etc) i would get coil whine. this psu was plenty to power my vid card but would vibrate and give off 14k scream thatd give me a migraine, so, although i didnt by from newegg, i returned it for a cooler master

Other Thoughts: cheap, good for budget build not meant to game

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet, performance Power Supply with somewhat low/misleading maximum power output specs.

Pros: Low cost.

This power supply is a good replacement part for broken computers in the basic to middle performance range with integrated graphics and few to no upgrade cards.

The maximum amps on this power supply's +12V rails falls in the safe range so you don't have to worry about the risk of fire like some of the early/cheap power supplies.

The 140mm fan is suppose to be very quiet -- like a whisper. Larger fans, like 140mm or 120mm are quiet, compared to the noisy 80mm fans, because they move more air with a slower rotation speed. You may not notice the quiet if your computer has other fans in the loud 80mm size.

Cons: The power rating on this item is sort of a lie. As a 3-rail power supply it has to share a maximum 450 Watts between all three rails (as seen on its label: 450W). This power supply can only power two of its three rails at maximum power. The third rail is left with an unusable 1.5-4.5 Amps -- well below the 15A-18A output marked on its label. (450W divided by 12V = 37.5A; then 37.5 -18 -18 = 1.5A, or 37.5 -18 -15 = 4.5A).

If you use this power supply with upgraded components like a video card it might surpass the power rating and damage some components from lack of power.

Other Thoughts: This is a good power supply that doesn't cost much but you need to be aware of the power limitations and not put too much power load on it from add-on components.

This part is perfect for fixing the computers of less tech-savvy people, who mostly use their PCs for the Internet/E-mail, whose computers are often brand name machines, with few to no upgrades, and a poorly-powered budget power supplies (especially eMachines) that "just didn't turn on today." -- because the power supply failed from a surge or overwork.

1 out of 5 eggsDissapointed!

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: Power rating of this entire brand of power supplies seems to be poor performers and inconsistent. Not Newegg's fault.

Other Thoughts: Had 5 Coolmax 500W Power supplies and 1 600W. 2 of the 500W failed within 1 year. The 600W didn't fail, but began to not supply enough power to the computer to keep everything running.

Powering ASRock K10N78M AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard, AMD Phenom X3 8750 Toliman 2.4GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Triple-Core Processor, GIGABYTE GV-R467D3-512I Radeon HD 4670 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card and OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory. Also powering 4 case fans. Have to unplug 2 of the fangs to keep it consistently running. Plugging a 3rd fan(doesn't matter which one), causes the graphics card to lose signal due to lack of power. Could be an inferior graphics card, but seems to be the power supply.
