5 out of 5 eggsExcellent PSU

Pros: The PSU has a lot of great qualities about it. First of all it's Thermaltake. They have come a long ways to make some stellar products and this is one of them. It has an extremely well build internals with high quality caps and other major parts. While not 100% modular, it still 90% modular. This PSU also comes with the flat cables which can definitely help with cable management.

I have been testing this PSU under heavy load for over a month on a heavy load 24/7 and it has yet to show any signs of weakness. Pretty sure that in it's self is a sign of one hell of a well built PSU. Lets also not forget that the PSU is super quite and cool. Thermaltake really knows how to build PC components and do it well. Usually low end PSU's are just that, low end. This PSU has a very respectful price point, especially when it comes to the quality.

Cons: I really couldn't find a cone with this PSU. It works, as designed.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind, this is not built for high end PC's. Mid range, yes. Will you be able to do SLI? Only if you are not running multiple HDD's and a power hungry processor or even an OC'd processor. This is a mid range PSU meant for mid range parts. If you're looking to shave costs don't. When building a PC it's always best to go with the GOOD quality equipment. This doesn't mean the higher the cost the better it is either, do your research, read reviews before throwing down the $$. If you're building a PC on your own then you should be educated enough to know what to look for.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent PSU

Pros: Modular
Plenty of power for a mid-range PC
Super Quite
87%-92% efficiency

Cons: I haven't had an issue with this yet and I have been putting it through it's paces for over a month of constant heavy loads.

Other Thoughts: This PSU offers a great upgrade at a very respectable price point for those who are in the mid range setups (single GPU, mid range proc, no more than 5 HDD's). I wouldn't suggest this in an SLI build as this is definitely not the proper PSU for that, but anything and this will handle it with ease. I also want to mention that it stays super quite and cool even under heavy loads which is a plus if you like your PC to be as quite as possible.

2 out of 5 eggsRebate is a scam

Pros: still working

Cons: I bought this thinking I'd save a few bucks with the rebate. not only do they not ship to PO Boxes but require you to submit the rebate to one. Not worth your time. Rebate was finally declined on the grounds that they didn't receive the invoice/receipt I sent in... but they somehow got the bar codes that were in the same letter .

Other Thoughts: Don;t waste your time with this company, might as well get a better psu when they are on sale.
