2 out of 5 eggsGood power supply but noisey

Pros: Its a nice power supply for the money on new egg. I have had zero problems with functionality of the unit.

Cons: This thing is noisy!!!!!

The Noise Killer (thermal fan speed control function) & Low noise and ripple is some kind of marketing joke they all got a good laugh in while writing the manual. This things starts quite during the post and then it just fires up full boar and almost rivals DBs of a well tuned Honda motor with the hood up. I am even considering getting a different power supply because of the noise. I have looked up everything that i could to remedy this but no information on it. I have worked with rack mounted servers that have 10 cooling fans that generate less noise then thing.

Other Thoughts: Calls centers could just could run this power supply in their computers and forget about installing a white noise system.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This has been running my PC for 3.5 hours and has never even hiccuped. My PC has been on about 95% of the time and this baby is still rock solid. It and my case have been the only things to stay the same through each of my annual upgrades. I don't think I'll have to replace it for a very long time because my case has room for a second PSU, so I'll just put a second one of these in it.

Cons: It was ~$250 when I bought it. :(

Other Thoughts: Specs:
CPU: i7-2600k
MB: MSI P67A-GD65
GPU: ATI 5970 2GB
RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1333
SSD: 2x Crucial C300 128GB
HDD: 3x WD Caviar Black 1TB

4 out of 5 eggsSolid PSU

Pros: Power supply functions as advertised, modular cables a big plus. Accessories, (Velcro, storage bag) are pretty cool.

Cons: Exceptionally loud PSU.

Other Thoughts: PSU would die intermittently after I tried to run my fans at 7 volts (one wire on the 12v line, other wire on the 5v line). As this is a manner of operation outside the parameters of any PSU, this is simply something of which the enthusiast should be aware, and is not a con. I do plan to continue buying Sparkle products.

3 out of 5 eggsDied after 6 months

Pros: Worked right out of the box

Cons: If I was to buy this one again I would get speedfan or something to test the 12v power I checked it about 5 months after and it is running at 11.4v which will not run the 260video card right, you need 11.9 to 12.4

Other Thoughts: other than that it worked fine

4 out of 5 eggsNice PSU for any price.

Pros: Very quiet, good air flow, semi-modular, comes with more cables that you will ever use.

Cons: Not completely modular, Not SLI certified, Not Crossfire certified.

Other Thoughts: Even though this PSU is not SLI or Crossfire certified It should have no problems with either format.
The only manufacturer that is completely modular is Ultra and you will pay through the nose for one of those PSU's.
SPI is known for their reliability.

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: Fit my Cooler Master Case. The 4 screws provided matched up to the case and the PSU. The modular plugs are a bonus as you only add those cables that you need. Keeps wire management easy.

Cons: None that I can think of. Worked great out of the box

Other Thoughts: Awesome shipping by NewEgg. Had it quick!

5 out of 5 eggsSeems to be a nice product

Pros: Nice build quality. Cabling is designed well. Connectors are sturdy, cables are braided, and cable management is easy enough. They even included some very nice velcro cable ties and a carrying case for spare cables (not sure why). Fan is quite quiet. Most important part, the power is very stable. Have had some exposure to SPI on the business IT side, had good success. Overall very good value. Plenty of power for substantial OC'ing, 4 HDD's (2 raptors), 6 x 120mm case fans, PCIx SLI, 2.35v ram and a couple of opticals for good measure.

Cons: First one died during a test. I'm now thinking it was actually the tester that is bad. When I bought this, I hedged my bet and bought a tester so as to not put my system at risk. Got a loud pop and that was all she wrote. Not willing to try any more good supplies with tester so not really sure. Replacement was fast and works great. Fan can't be controlled by mobo, but isn't really needed with this unit.

Other Thoughts: New Egg handled the RMA quickly and curtiously. SPI has been a good no frills manufacturer and this product represents that with some actual frills. As always I will most certainly update if any problems occur down the road (I wish everyone would do the same).
