3 out of 5 eggsQuiet and cheap

Pros: Cheap, quiet, runs cool.

Cons: The outer casing was loosely attached out of the box, and the warranty label torn, which may be a problem if the unit ever fails and I need to RMA. As of now though, it seems to be doing it's job.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks, but I think they sent the wrong cords.

Pros: Works great as long as you do not bump the cord or move the computer at all.

Cons: The cord that this PSU is shipped with is far to long for it (the actual plug). This causes the plug to not fit correctly so if you so much as look at it wrong it will move the slightest bit and unplug the computer so it loses power. Can be very frustrating. If you buy this PSU make sure you also snag some spare cords that actually fit properly since they are fairly cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

Pros: This. This has been an absolutely perfect PSU, I've been using it for almost 2 years, and I rarely turn off my computer. It's been running an AMD FX-6300, Geforce 9800GT, and about 4 HDDs for the entire time. I'm planning on upgrading to a GTX 760 very soon, so that will be the true test for it.

Cons: I have none, this thing is a beast, pretty quiet, and runs cool.

Other Thoughts: I really hope CoolMax keeps making newer versions of their budget PSUs
