Just like thunderstorms are full of power and energy so is FSP Group’s Blue Storm II 500. This 500W PSU has two +12V rails for balanced power output. This lets you fully load your system without worrying about having enough power to run it effectively. Keeping everything cool is a 120mm fan and a fully open hexagonal mesh back panel for efficient air flow.

You don’t have to worry about your PSU limiting what you can install due to lack of connectors. In addition to the six molex and 2 floppy connectors for traditional drives there are four SATA connectors for today’s high speed drives. There are also a PCIe connectors so you can use a high end graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggsBlue Beast

Pros: It's a solid performer. Haven't had any problems with it running various mid-level rigs. It's blue.

I've had it on quite a lot since 2007 and it hasn't given me any problems.

Cons: None really. I like it.

Other Thoughts: If you need something to run a small gaming machine or a mid-range all-around type machine this will work perfectly. I don't know about pushing the limits but I'm on the verge of an overclocking adventure.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works well.

Cons: Power supply button(i/o) broke. Company will not fix product.

Other Thoughts: I had this power supply before, it caught fire, they replaced it. Less than a year later, the power button no longer works, and since my original purchase was over 3 years ago, fsp will not replace the power supply. Plagued with problems. I wont buy from fsp again

5 out of 5 eggsSolid PSU

Pros: I bought this PSU in May ’10 to upgrade the one in my Dell 4700. Since then I’ve built my own computer and decided to reuse the PSU rather than buy a new one. Both computers have been on most of the time and I’ve never had any issues with the PSU. It’s currently powering a Phenom II X6, GTX 460, and four hard drives. Considering how much I originally paid, I’m very pleased with the value and performance of this product.

Cons: Four SATA connectors were sufficient when I originally purchased this unit, but now I would have liked one with more. Not taking an egg off though, four were enough then and I can use 4-pin/SATA adapters now for additional drives I install.

Other Thoughts: Will probably look to get another FSP unit when the time comes for an upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Unit

Pros: I've had this PSU for about four years, and my computer has been running 12-24 hours a day, for nearly every day of those past 4 years. It's currently powering a factory overclocked GTX 460, Athlon X4, and velociraptor hard drive. The voltage is stable, and the fan is quiet. The sleeved cables are also a nice touch. I couldn't ask for more--especially for the price that I paid for it. Which was around $60 in 2007. It's outlasted several other computer parts, and chugged along happily with complete system overhauls.

Cons: I don't think they make it anymore...

Other Thoughts: I've been very happy with FSP units, and I have an even older FSP 450W power ing my parents computer. My friend has a 4-5 year old 700W FSP PSU, and he's equally as pleased.

4 out of 5 eggsgood psu

Pros: Lasted 3 years through two system rebuilds. Never had a 'quality' PSU last more than 2 yrs in my high end high stress builds. This one made it 3 yrs.

Cons: 3 year warranty. Bought 5/24/07 failed 6/4/2010.

Other Thoughts: Looking at higher rated FSP psu's.

5 out of 5 eggsDependable and durable

Pros: I've had this thing for years. It has served solidly and without any glitches or problems. I have had a lot of problems with heat because of the high temp of the room my PC is in. But never with this.

Cons: None that I've noticed.

Other Thoughts: This thing is dependable, strong, and I would buy another in a heartbeat if I should need it. Can't recommend it highly enough-- if it's got a high enough power rating for your needs, you can't beat it.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: As previously stated, the power supply worked flawlessly until almost two years now. Purchased 5/30/2008, blown today on 2/17/2010.

Cons: The power supply caught fire and really smells right now. My room is so smelly I may not be able to sleep in it actually. I am not sure yet whether it caught fire or blew a capacitor.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have not turn off my system once for two and a half years with this power supply. Solid quality.

Cons: None. More SATA Connectors would be great.

Other Thoughts: Going to buy a FSP Group Power_MOD 700W for my next rig.
