2 out of 5 eggsOut of the limits of tolerance

Pros: Good initial appeal, good cable managements for airflow

Cons: According to the ATX specification the voltage range in the power rails can suffer from a deflection of up to 10% and still be considered within the limits of tolerance. Ideally, one would expect that a higher grade and good brand of power supply to very close to the specifications. But it turned out that it is not the case with this Thermaltake W0100RU 500W PSU, the power rail on the 3.3V pin is outputting close to 3.7V which beyond the limits of tolerances (a min. of 2.97V, a max. of 3.66V) which then can cause more system instability, malfunction, and stress on hardware components.

5 out of 5 eggsWish I had known the true Amps on the +12 rail

Pros: I have owned this power supply for about 3 years now and it works without a hitch. Will be enough to power a new GTX 560 as it powers my GTX 260 super clocked edition requires more power.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I hope I'm not wrong.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet Power

Pros: Very quiet, which is why I bought it. Much nicer than OEM.

Cons: Cables are very long - almost TOO long (1 egg). Unnecessary ones should be removable.

Other Thoughts: All electronics and appliances should have advertised noise ratings. This is one of the features I consider very important. Very hard to watch a movie at night with a blender screaming in the case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little PSU

Pros: Very durable, runs quiet, exhausts heat nicely and has plenty of cables.

Cons: Plenty of cables can be good and bad, depending if you use them all. I have only used two of the peripherals, two SATA connectors and had to tuck the rest of them beneath my DVD drive. If you're planning on having a slew of HDDs and opticals drives, and maybe a floppy or two (gasp! do people still use those??) then you'll have little issues with cable management. Otherwise... prepare to tuck!

Other Thoughts: Mine's been running for nearly 3 years now and I'm pretty sure it's going to outlive the machine it is powering...

5 out of 5 eggsGood. Got my rebate!

Pros: Hasn't died.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used this PSU for someone else's build so I don't have much to say other than it's still working. I even got the rebate.

5 out of 5 eggsNice unit

Pros: Very high quality fan, and the wires were bundled nicely.

Cons: Wire bundles are a little stiff for routing and tucking away.

Other Thoughts: I recently upgraded my ancient Athlon 2800+ system with a Radeon graphics card. and the cheapo PSU was just shutting the system down whenever I tried to run a game or fullscreen video. It's rock solid stable after installing this unit.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

Pros: Plenty of connectors, that's for darn right sure.

Cons: SATA Power cable could be a bit longer. I'm powering two HDDs and an optical drive, and it -just- reaches all three (I couldn't put the optical drive at the top like I would have liked because I couldn't reach all three that way).

Other Thoughts: Powering 4 case fans, 2 HDDs, 1 optical drive, ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO MOBO, AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsRebates Stink

Pros: Very Quite, plenty of connectors, and shielded with black mesh.

Cons: The shielding makes the cables stiff.

Other Thoughts: My rebate was denied because I bought this unit a day before the program started, which I think is unfair since the marking Newegg stated one price and that is what I expected.
