Every advancement in computer technology -- every new graphics card, sound card or CPU, means a greater need for power. The Apevia (Aspire) ATX-CW500WP4 500W Power Supply is high on efficiency and reliability, with a clean design that helps reduce power consumption, while solid construction ensures system stability. It has dual fans that provide quiet, powerful cooling, while industrial-grade protection circuitry protects against power and voltage surges.

A thermal fan speed controller adjusts fan speed while balancing cooling, power consumption, and noise emission. Independent voltage control loop and industrial grade components allow your fan to provide stable output and protection from power and voltage surges.

Two +12V rails (12V1, 12V2), will support most of your components under any load. It has one main connector (20 + 4 pin), one 12V (P4), two SATA, two Floppy, and six peripheral connectors. This state-of-the-art power supply also features universal input and ATX12V v2.03 compliance, so you can use it in a variety of situations and almost everywhere, with confidence.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent durability

Pros: No problems at all

Cons: Nothing of note

Other Thoughts: I've been running this PS for over 6 years to play games (TF2, Skyrim, GTA IV, etc.) and it's had no problems. It's powering and old Athlon X2 dual core CPU, 8GB RAM, and I've gone through a few video cards over the years (currently a radeon HD 7750).

1 out of 5 eggsNice while it worked

Pros: Cheap power supply

Cons: cheap power supply - bought to replace a burned out power supply for older computer. Power supply lasted one day. Went to turn on computer in the morning, and nothing, not even a beep. RMA'd back to newegg for a refund. Decided to build a new rig instead.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for gaming

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cannot handle builds with decent graphics card on heavy load/gameplay.

Other Thoughts: I was using this to supply a system with: AMD A85X, A10-5800k, 2x 4g 1866 RAM, and a Radeon HD 6700. Worked fine with normal everyday use and light gaming.

Then I upgraded my graphics card to an R7 265. 10-60 minutes later I would smell a burning plastic smell and computer would crash (no other hardware overheating).

Buy this if you want a cheap PSU - for a cheap build overall, and won't be doing intense gaming, etc. DON'T buy this if you will do some gaming with at least a decent graphics card.

You get what you pay for. If you have a decent build (maybe $500-600+ total), buy a decent PSU, and save prevent damaging your other components because of a bad PSU.

1 out of 5 eggsPre-Mature Death

Pros: Worked right out of the box and fix into my Compaq with no problems.

Cons: After a mere 6 months of use my power supply has bit the dust. I guess you get what you pay for. This really sucks as I can't really afford a new Power Supply right now.

Other Thoughts: I don't think from what I've read and my own results that the QA Dept is doing their job properly, and/or not being properly tested (Hi-Pot) test comes to mind. This just makes me really upset.

Manufacturer Response:

You can do an RMA through us for the power supply to get an exchange on the PSU if you are still under our warranty period. You can contact Apevia's customer service at or call at (909) 718-0789. We try to reply to all calls and e-mails as soon as we can.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: The price

Cons: The first one caused a case fan power cable to explode (may have been a faulty cable) on the first power-on and also had a loose wire on the 20pin connector. Motherboard LED showed power but my computer wouldn't attempt to boot.

RMA'd case and power supply.

The second one worked fine for about 2 months until my computer started randomly rebooting, though never when I was using it so I couldn't tell if it was an OS issue or hardware issue. After two days of that, the computer wouldn't boot.

The motherboard LED showed power, but it would only attempt to power on for less than a second if I turned the powersupply off and on between attempts.

Other Thoughts: It's been replaced by a different brand and everything is working fine so far.

The 4 SATA power connectors are all on the same strand so connecting my DVD drive and hard drives was difficult due to case layout. The peripheral connectors are 3+floppy on one strand and a fourth on it's own strand.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks the way it should.

Pros: Works out of the box. Has more than enough power leads for all your peripherals inside the computer. With 500w, should be able to power up any cpu and peripheral plugged in. I used the power supply to power a Dell quad-core with two hard drives, DVD burner, pci express video card, pci usb card and multiple external usb peripherals.

Cons: The first one burned out after 3 years. We'll see how this one goes.

5 out of 5 eggsIs it really there?

Pros: Quiet. I have to look at the computer pilot light to see if it's running. Alomst no sound form any fans.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used this Apevia for my home-built machine, I use just for general computing. Never been a problem.

1 out of 5 eggsDead with less than 100 hrs on it

Pros: Nice cords for an economy desktop
Braided 20+4 pin mobo cord
Long cords for full tower case

Cons: I just got my computer running again after 2 yrs without ram (I'm a poor college student). Died with less than 100 hrs on it calculated wattage usage of 267w. I unlocked my x2 phenom II cores so I was running a quad core 555 Callisto with a 870s-g54 mobo one 2gb 1333 stick of ram with radeon 5450 GPU nothing special for a 500w psu.

Never got the rebate card either customer support was no help with the rebate either and haven't replied to my emails.

Buyer Beware..

Other Thoughts: Second Apevia psu I've had that died prematurely luckily I had a 300w spare psu that's from a Dell that runs my quad just fine and very stable. I plugged the psu into a tester and its completely dead, I am just glad it didn't take any of my other components with it. Sad that a Dell psu with -200w is better than something Apevia can manufacture. Save your money and buy a Corsair.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Enough plugs and power for what I need at this price. I play a little (WoW, D3, Borderlands 2, Marvel MMO, etc. I would upgrade with more efficient later (in a year or so) for further PC upgrade and probably use this one to upgrade my HTPC. No noise, no blink, light up at 1st attempt

Cons: None as now!

Other Thoughts: I would took a black-ish colored one to fit my set though, but life is life! :-)
