3 out of 5 eggsWorks for what it is

Pros: It allowed me to run a GTX gaming card in a computer that had an OEM power supply. Modular cables were a plus.

Cons: Hot. You need adequate ventilation to keep it from overheating. Given that it's meant as a supplemental power supply for an already constrained PC, that's definitely a downside. It's loud; its built in fan is tiny and overworked. It requires running a secondary AC power cord out one of the rear brackets, and the supplied blank is full size. You won't like using this in a mini-ITX case.

Other Thoughts: It's a great idea but a poor implementation. It got the job done, but just barely. In the end you're better off buying a cheap but roomy case and a decent 500W or better power supply, if you plan on running a dedicated GPU that would otherwise need this solution. That's what I ended up doing. I might be able to convert this thing into a somewhat decent test bench power supply, but it's definitely not going in another computer of mine.

3 out of 5 eggsSo-So quality control

Pros: Compact, clever design. Nice thick power cables. Works as advertised. Good price. There isn't anything else like it in the market.

Cons: There is a metal shroud in front of the unit. This part has to be "removed" to properly fit in a 5.25 bay of the Mac Pro tower. To remove this part requires disassembly which voids the warranty. My unit was received with a broken/shattered fan. It wasn't worth the effort to return since I had opened the unit to remove the metal shroud. I bought an aftermarket 40mm fan to fix.

Other Thoughts: Receiving the unit with broken fan was pretty disappointing which ruins an otherwise neat little package.

5 out of 5 eggsGood addition

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Cost,cost,cost! This dedicated PSU will allow you to upgrade for quite a few generations.
Setup is pretty straight forward. I've always purchased the Thermaltake dedicated VGA PSU.
But the ePOWER so far is just as good and will power the Titan without an issue could power 2 in SLI.

Cons: I couldn't think of one really. It worked from day one and is still doing so.

Other Thoughts: As I stated i've always purchased the ThermalTake Dedicated VGA PSU. Owned the 250w and have the Thermaltake 450 in my main PC. My sons PC uses the ePOWER it replaced the Thermaltake 250 he had.

So far it's powered a 560 and 770 no problem.

4 out of 5 eggsA 10 ton truck for a load of folding chairs

Pros: -Its heavy duty
- I personally like the cabling style
-It wasnt DOA
-No coil whine
-Nice bundled velcro cable ties (instead of the one-time-use "zip-ties")

Cons: -Its heavy duty (see comments)
-Cables had weird white dust on them when i opened the box. Had to take a damp towel and wipe them all. It came off easily though

Other Thoughts: This psu IS very bulky. The entire psu chassis is metal. Even the front plate you see in the pics is metal, making for a very "solid" feel. The cables look like they were made to wire a house. The plugs on the cable ends are as big as some wall outlet plugs! So yes, the other reviews are correct, the cables are this psu's worst flaw. However, if you like the heavy duty feel, and have room to handle bulky cables, its pretty nice.

Also, the 3 fans on this only turn on when needed; a nice feature to keep your rig quiet when simply typing a word document

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Peachy

Pros: Used with a cheap TT PS that had no 6pin connectors. Powers a MSI TwinFrozer GTX260 and some fans WITHOUT getting HOT. Modular cables are high quality.

Cons: If using a full size Video Card, the modular cables will horizontally stick out, and may create a problem with closing the case.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Everything seems to work really well, got it to power a 7950 card that was pulling more current than my PSU could handle.

Cons: As noted in other reviews, the power cables are stiff. I had to leave it hanging halfway out of the drive bay. Didn't see any directions.

Other Thoughts: Remember to hook up your main PSU to the Molex connector on the back, it doesn't fire up without it. The unit has 2 rails, one is on the top connectors and the other the bottom (read off another review).

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Sounded like a good idea.

Cons: Was DOA. Unfortunately I did not unpack/use it within the 30 day return period. Given the modest price it's not worth for me to send it back and forth for manufacturers warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Powers my GTX 580 beautifully, super quiet, looks pretty sick. Solid design, plenty of power cables for future upgrades (SLI).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought an inexpensive Asus M11BB with an A8-5500 APU, and the graphics were terrible (as expected).
I got the urge to play Far Cry 3, and the APU could barely hit 10FPS at low settings. I got a GTX 580, and used this to power it. Now I'm averaging 60FPS on Very High settings. Love this thing.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU for Mac Pro - Terrible Cables

Pros: This fits nicely into the DVD drive bay.

Cons: The cables are ugly and thick. They're modular PCI-e Cables, meaning they both need to be male to male. VERY difficult to find thinner versions of these cables.

Also needs a SATA to MOLEX adapter if installing into your Mac Pro tower (not included).

Other Thoughts: Decent. Hasn't fried. Terrible cables, thick and bulky and difficult to thread through the Mac Pro, but its able to handle a Titan Black, so I'm happy. I just wish there were thinner, less bulky versions of the PCI-E cables it comes with.
