4 out of 5 eggsLasted longer than expected

Pros: Lasted for 6 years now and is still going strong. Computer is on 24/7. Still give proper voltage/amps on all rails.

Cons: I have had to replace both fans in this power supply now due to barring failure.

Other Thoughts: This is a zumax power while it isn't bad it is outdated by today standards and quality control may have gone down from when i received my unit. My unit was of surprisingly high quality and had one of the best pcb boards i had seen in a power supply but i can not speak for newer units.

2 out of 5 eggsStarted Arcing and more...

Pros: While it was working it could handle my complete rig

Cons: A capacitor literally fell out. No joke.
Destroyed my motherboard

Other Thoughts: I liked this power supply at first but then my computer stopped working. A computer tech friend diagnosed a motherboard issue after bypassing the power supply. After repairing the motherboard, it still wasn't working. We bypassed again and presto, it worked. Taking out the power supply we heard a rattling.

Since the power supply was out of warranty anyway we took it apart (and took safety precautions, if you don't know what you are doing DO NOT take apart power supplies EVER). When we separated the shell one of the capacitors fell out. The soldering had come apart from the look of things.

As of now I am using an old power supply from a spare desktop. Can't use my graphics card but I want to get a power supply that won't destroy other components.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Able to support independently powered GPUs.

Stylish black.

Cheap.

Cons: Iffy Q&A.

Unknown company.

build quality is woefully average.

Cheap.

Other Thoughts: This PSU was already cheap and I got during a Christmas sale. Reviews consensus seems to be that if it works it works well, but it is up in the air if it works or not. I rolled the dice and figured if it ate it then I would deal with RMAing it was worth it for the price.

Well over a year later and it is still going strong. It can run a bit hot which is probably why it has a "turbo" button for the fan. The build quality is very average and it doesn't exactly instill confidence in you when you pick it up but it works. A few times it started to make a very faint rattle which I just figured was the maybe the fan acting up or perhaps an internal screw or something because everything I can reach is tight. flicking the exhaust fan's grill makes the noise stop.

1 out of 5 eggsWARNING

Pros: NewEgg comes through again with fast shipping.

Cons: Lighted fan was in the back, not the 'bottom' as pictured, the picture is misleading (or my unit was at very least.)
I ran this unit under nominal load, and it failed in 8 months, which is no where near the expected life span of a power supply, especially since I do not use the system but an hour or two a day. I can see why I got it on sale now...

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this unit to anyone.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat until turbo is touched

Pros: Delivers what any powersupply should.

Cons: I bumped into the turbo fan button, and my computer completely shuts off, at first i thought it was my hard drive, but later after alot of inspection it turns out to be the powersupply, I highly suggest not touching the turbo fan.

Other Thoughts: Great powersupply for the price, just don't touch that button.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Powers stuff. Easy enough to install.

Cons: When mounted fan-down, there was a half-applied sticker on the fan that very loudly clicked against the grate, which had to be removed for quiet function.

Cons: it doesn't work.
