5 out of 5 eggssatisfactory

Pros: Aside from the obvious - this is a very small power supply (fits very well in the bitfenix prodigy micro itx case, for instance), with adequate length cables (longer than I needed but again it's a small case), and it's very quiet.

Cons: No cable to power a case fan - you'll have to spend a buck or two to get an adapter if you have more fans than your motherboard has fan headers (this is common)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Unit!

Pros: This little unit fits all my needs. It was the only unit with a gold efficiency rating that would fit in my Bitfenix Prodigy with room to spare. The non-modular design isn't a problem as there is plenty of room to tuck the cables in the side of the Prodigy's PSU compartment.

It's able to run my system (under load), which may be pushing it but I'll have to test it with a watt meter for sure.

System includes:

i7 2600K @ 4.5 GHz
Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe
16GB DDR3 1866MHz RAM
LG Blu-ray Writer
GTX 560Ti 448 core Classified
2 x Corsair Force GT 240GB SSD in RAID 0
1 x 2TB Hitachi 7200RPM HDD
Zalman Liquid cooler

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggswow

Pros: Wow! I think this thing could also run my dishwasher, refrigerator, and microwave. Runs cool and quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Only my 3rd computer build, this thing has some really impressive cabling. It inspires me to order another one and build on a 2-CPU mobo with fancy GTX video cards.

Pros: Silent even when long term gaming. Looks very cool. Nice detail on the mesh even. Not modular but black mesh braiding is a very nice detail. Long cables easily reached from bottom mount case.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome upper-mid level PSU

Pros: This power supply provides more than most people need, and gets great energy efficiency! Has plenty of connections, and cables are neatly tied down with mesh.

500 watts will power a nice quad-core and a high-end GPU, with room to overclock a bit. 2 PCI-E power connectors will let you plug in most high-end GPUs.

80 Plus Gold PSU, draws almost 10% less energy when my system is idle or under load.

Cons: None.

Cheapest 80 Plus Gold PSUs available at the moment, seem very reliable thus far, and energy efficiency shows.

Other Thoughts: I am running An i7-2600 and an HD6870 with a 7200RPM hard drive, and 2 sticks of RAM, plus 4 120mm fans.. My system at idle draws only about 65 watts with this PSU, about 5 less than my previous 80 Plus Bronze PSU, and about 10 less when under load.

I like this PSU very much, I plan on buying a 400 watt version for a media PC in the future.
