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.

4 out of 5 eggsGood 5.25" PSU

Pros: Powers my xfx R7 260x DD graphics card just fine. Small compact design. Nice black look matches my black case.

Cons: If you decide to turn of your computer and turn your computer back within 10 seconds or soo, the epower PSU would turn on and then turn back off. kinda weird.

Other Thoughts: My computer has a proprietary PSU.I could not just buy a new PSU because it would not work, so this is exactly what I needed. All you need is a sata to molex adaptor to power this thing on. No problems when putting max load on my graphics card. Overall good PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME BUY

Pros: A separate 450 watt GPU power supply for a really low price. I have 2 of these bad boys one is helping power my HD 6970s crossfire setup in one rig and the other is helping power my HD 4870x2s in quad crossfire in my other rig!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is the best solution to multi-GPU setups if you want to crossfire or SLI and you don't have an efficient power supply to power it.

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't last long

Pros: Cheap, and doesn't look bad in the case.

Cons: After about a month this thing stopped powering anything. Since it was so cheap and I used it for a month powering fans and a gtx 580 I didn't bother with RMA. Instead, I scrapped it for the neat little fans and splitters in there.

Also, when I was using it I had odd electrical anomalies that I don't feel like explaining, but trust me, this just isn't worth the headache.

Other Thoughts: The power solution is poorly done, it comes with a pci bracket for the power cord to pass through, it didn't fit right for me and the cord is very short.

I definitely recommend the more expensive version of this.
