5 out of 5 eggs5 years later and still going strong.

Pros: Bought this back in 2010 and its been in two different cases, through 3 different builds from AMD to Intel and back to AMD. Still running like a champ. I've run 4 burners and 4 hard drives almost 24/7 the whole time plus video cards though I've never crossfired or sli with it. It's never failed to fire right up.

Cons: The cable length has been an issue in a full size case but was easily fixed with a solder iron and old psu to steal wire from.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It was a great power supply to start out my new gaming rig. It lasted for a good length of time.

Cons: The cords are short even for my mid-tower rig.
After a while my computer got really loud I suspect it was the fan inside the power supply unit that made all the ruckus.

Occasionally, I would smell wierd smells which seem to be strongest from near the PSU.

When this PSU died on me 2 days ago It emitted some sparks and pop sounds.

Other Thoughts: I believe I built my gaming rig back in May 2012. But this PSU died on me on February 2nd, 2015. So this has decent longevity.

It was a good starter PSU. but now I'm seeking a new PSU to try and power on my system.

I can only hope and pray that the PSU did not take out any additional hardware like my motherboard, graphics card, cpu HDD, DVDROM or RAM with it.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not put out the power that is advertised.

Pros: -Put out some power
-Didn't explode (barely)

Cons: Could barely power a GTX 760, Couldn't power a GTX 970

Other Thoughts: I originally bought this when I got my GTX 760 and a new case, so I could have some decent cable management. I had never messed around with overclocking before but I heard the 760 was decent for it. When I tried it my entire PC would restart on the slightest overclock. I figured it was the card or my error so I left it alone. I decided to upgrade my GPU last week to a GTX 970. I hooked it up and installed the drivers. When I went to play a game my PC just restarted. I double checked my connections, made sure my BIOS was up to date, and tried multiple games. all resulted in the same result. The minimum power supply requirement is 500w for the 970 so I thought I was fine. I RMA'd the card thinking maybe it was faulty and the replacement I received did the same thing. So I went out a bought a name brand 750w PSU and now it works perfectly. This PSU does not supply anywhere near 700w. I would not recommend it unless you plan on upgrading your PSU again in a couple months, or if you're running a less power consuming system. Also let it be said that im not running anything crazy on my system. Just a CPU, GPU, one HDD and some fans and lights. Nothing too power consuming.

1 out of 5 eggsOne of the worst PSUs ever.

Pros: Its cheap and semi modular. The fan was quiet and all the connections fit well.

Cons: This PSU blew after just 2 months of use and took my sound card with it. No power surge or anything out of the ordinary. Would not recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Power Supply.

Pros: *Power Supply has lasted so long that I finally retired it today, owned this thing for what must of been 4-5+ years already.
*Silent, under any load that I could throw at it.
*Plenty of connections, cable length is OK for full sized towers.
*Powers my various video cards up-to a GTX 680.

Cons: One day this Power Supply will be retired and that is the con. Goodnight sweet prince.

Other Thoughts: The reason I had to retire it is due to my new video card having a 8-pin connector and this power supply not coming with one. I lost my modular PCI-E cable and had to have 2 molex connectors attached to a PCI-E adapter and another 2 molex adapters making yet another PCI-E adapter to plug in one 8-PIN adapter which then plugged into my video card.

I didn't feel good about having too many adapters connected for safety reasons which is not the fault of the power supply itself, I don't trust having so many adapters daisy chained even though everything powered up and gamed on just fine. I would recommend and buy Coolmax power supplies again in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Runs cool, Quiet

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used in a moderate system build (Athlon x2 250, single Nvidia GeForce card) for over 3yrs, no problems. Maybe others are overloading thiers?

3 out of 5 eggsRan great for 3+ years

Pros: Quiet, easy to clean, enough cords and cords are long enough. 3 years of working

Cons: Died with a very loud bang pop and sparks. Took out my mobo, ram, and harddrive. CoolMax very quickly sent out a replacement. The replacement seems to lack the power and causes resets.
ASUS Sabertooth 990fx am3+
AMD FX-8150 8 core
Samsung 64gb SSD
Western Digital 2tb
Gskill sniper series 8gb (2x4gb)
Radeon 5850HD

Other Thoughts: It lasted for 2 and a half years with my original setup
ASUS m4a79xtd mobo
AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition
GSKILL Ripjaws 8gb (4x2gb)
Radeon HD 5850
I upgraded and it died after six months. After getting all my parts warrenty replaced the system has random resets. I replaced the video card with a less powerful card. (one that doesn't need the 2 6pins) The computer now runs without resets. I give it 3 eggs for the 3 years it worked but I would still suggest getting something a bit more powerful for components build in 2012 on.

1 out of 5 eggsIt exploded.

Pros: Worked for the first year or so I had it.

Cons: PSU started running hot. Then, in the middle of a game of Team Fortress, it freakin' exploded. Loud, dramatic pop noise. Burning plastic/magic smoke smell. I don't have a backup PSU so I'm hoping it didn't take any other parts with it. Do yourself a favor and buy something else, I'm not the only one in this review section that had this happen to them.
