5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra RX-500AF-B 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Raidmax RX-500AF-B Power Supply

Pros: Low cost
Sleeved Cables
Feels sturdy
Plenty of Connectors
Nice look

Cons: Only one PCI-E power connector

Other Thoughts: This is a great low-cost psu for someone building their first PC. I like the graphics on the case of the psu but they will be hidden in my NZXT h440 case. It powers my GTX 660 with no problems whatsoever. I am using it with a AMD 8320 and a Biostar TA970 mobo. It easily provides enough power for my system and I would recomend it to a friend.

1 out of 5 eggsRX-500AF-B 500W

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra RX-500AF-B 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Raidmax RX-500AF-B Power Supply

Pros: It didn't explode when turning it on for the first time. Technically works. Extremely cheap with MIR. Quiet.

Cons: Not enough power connectors, low power (but expected). Not enough connectors for a single graphics card let alone two. Out of spec 12v rail. Very short cables.

Other Thoughts: This PSU (the 500W model) is falsely advertised as SLI capable. I did not intend to use this for that purpose however. Instead I wrongly assumed it would have enough connections for a single graphics card - the R9 280. I was mistaken. It does not even have enough for a single card let alone enough for some type of SLI rig. It has a single 6+2 pin PCIe connector. My old HD 4870 needs two 6 pin so it can't even connect to 6 year old cards without using adapters.

The color scheme isn't the best but I cannot see it anyway so it doesn't really matter too much. It is quiet even when under high load. The 12v rail on mine appears to be outputting at 11.2v idle and jumps to 11.6v under load.

I decided to give Raidmax my trust and it was misplaced to be sure. I just got the rebate and will be buying something better very soon. It was my fault for making assumptions about the PCIe connectors but the low quality of this unit is something I was warned about well before buying and I purchased anyway.

Don't make the same mistake I did and buy something better.

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra RX-500AF-B 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Raidmax RX-500AF-B Power Supply

Pros: it did its job but for only a limited time

Cons: ive owned this PSU for 4 months whn it decided to just shut down one day. I've contacted Raidmax and they would not take a refund or exchange for a new PSU. So knoing i couldn't get a new one i took it apart cause the warranty didn't matter anyway and there is absolutely nothing visibility wrong with it all the caps were good and nothing out of the ordinary.

Other Thoughts: i spent $50.00 on a 500 watt one. my advice is to save up a couple more dollars and get a corsair

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,
This PSU you've purchased does come with a 2 years manufacture warranty.
If you have all the receipt or invoices, we should be able to exchange one for you without any problems.
Maybe there was a misunderstanding/mistake somewhere.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please send a email to rma@raidmax.com for faster respond/service.

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra RX-500AF-B 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Raidmax RX-500AF-B Power Supply

Pros: Works, plenty of cables, fan is extremely silent, powered my system without any hiccups.

FX 6300 3.5ghz
MSI 670 2gb PE
8gb 1600mhz

Cons: Not enough power..? No real cons. If 500w is enough for your system, I would recommend this.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good PSU

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra RX-500AF-B 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Raidmax RX-500AF-B Power Supply

Pros: Plenty of power for most builds.
Two 4-pin CPU power connectors
Plenty of SATA ports
Looks nice
Quiet

Cons: Would of really liked an LED

Read a review from a website about this cooler that suggested it was based on an older design and that it did not have complete and adequate protection, and said the efficiency was much lower than reported. However, I am not sure how serious to take the review, as it went on for a long period about how terrible they thought it looked, which I think it looks good and being unrelated to the performance so that made me question the review.

Other Thoughts: Like I said it may have some issues as read in another review. So far it is working fine. It is quiet, practically silent. I think the green colors on it look really good. I am not too worried about other issues, after the mail in rebate it comes down to $25 for me, making it a fairly cheap and replaceable power supply. If it goes well, then could be a good unit for a few years.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little power supply

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra RX-500AF-B 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Raidmax RX-500AF-B Power Supply

Pros: It works without any issues. It looks nice in my case, and I've had no problems since purchasing it. I got a 660 ti and it's able to handle that without issue. I had to use one of the duel molex to six pin adapters that came with my card though. Other than that it runs great

Cons: no cons to speak of.

Other Thoughts: Pick one up if you can find one

4 out of 5 eggsIts a good product

This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra RX-500AF-B 500W ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Raidmax RX-500AF-B Power Supply

Pros: This has everything you need when it comes to having many SATA ports, and runs very quiet and has not given me any sings of wanting to die out

Cons: the cables are a little too short for my taste, but i made them work. and it only has ONE PCI-e cable so you cant plug in two graphics cards

Other Thoughts: its just a well rounded psu, but i think the price is just a little too high but oh well i got it in a bundle so i cant complain
