5 out of 5 eggsSolid PSU

Pros: I bought this unit because of its reputation and price, and it hasn't let me down. Worked great from the start and haven't experienced any issues yet.

ASUS M4A78T-E 790GX; Phenom II X3 710 (OC'd to 2.88Ghz); MSI GTX 260 Factory Overclocked; 4GB OCZ DDR3 1600; Antec 900 (5 fans)

Cons: A lot of cords to manage.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Going

Pros: It's Seasonic! Nuff said!

Cons: None. If there are any it would be the low for high overclocks on the new 45nm cpu's amd makes. Don't know this for a fact, but if you want to over clock some 125 or 140w cpu's, I'd get at least a 600-650w psu for headroom purposes.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this for over a year and since then Seasonic has built up quite a reputation for itself. The prices on some of their bigger psu's state to that fact. This has been powering a rig with a dual core amd, a 3870,couple hard drives, antec 900 worth of fans and at one time 2 dvd drives as well as 4 gigs of ram(2x2). Seasonic rocks.....I got this under 50 bucks with free shipping a year ago and it's still solid. I'm updating motherboard and cpu and also the psu for overclocking headroom on the new quad core amd cpu's. Don't think this will handle it, but I have a 7750BE coming in and that will give me an Idea on the power comsumtiom, but even that is a 95w tdp cpu and not the 125 deneb. Considering I'm using an 89w tdp cpu currently that won't overclock worth snot, the 7750 will be a good test. If you want solid performance from a leader in the industry and you're not overclocking.....here it is. I had to buy an extension cable for the cpu power plug on the antec 900.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems here

Pros: Very low fan noise. Everything plugged in works without problems. (1 SATA, 2 IDE, 2 fans and the motherboard)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: OEM = power supply only wrapped in bubble wrap.
No power cord, no screws, no documentation, no box.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality PSU

Pros: Has all the connectors I needed to run my whole build plus a lot of extra fans. Currently powering an E2140@3.2GHz, 2GB DDR2 800, 2x 250GB SATA HDDs, 4x 120mm fans, 1x 140mm fan, A7FP, Audigy ZS, and a wonderful HD4870 1GB.

Cons: Needed to buy some 6pin to molex adapters for my HD4870, but considering I knew this didn't have the connectors in the first place, no eggs subtracted.

Other Thoughts: Great PSU. Get one.

1 out of 5 eggsfailed within 3 days

Pros: Rated for 500W and it worked for a while.

Cons: Failed within 3 days.

4 out of 5 eggsSeaSonic SS-500ES 500W

Pros: good performer, holds voltages well even under load, is quiet.
i use it in a HTPC and it does a great job

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: it's not one of those with a big 120mm or 140mm fans that push out a lot of heat. it hardly pushes out any air at all but hey, thats not it's primary function.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great build quality and efficiency. Quiet fan. Reputable company.

Cons: only 2 sata connectors, and on the same cable? nearly impossible to connect 2 sata devices unless they're stacked or right next to each other. I already broke one of the connectors, but it still works and connects securely. still had to drop a star for that though.

Other Thoughts: still would recommend. overall very satisfied. would definitely buy again if the sata devices in my build will be close enough to each other.
