1 out of 5 eggsDidn't last

Pros: Good price for decent wattage.

Cons: Lasted a little over a year of very limited use

Other Thoughts: Don't purchase, invest in a reliable cooler of better quality for a bit more money. Replacing such a crucial component after only a few years is a pain because this wasn't for a PC that I planned to upgrade every year or two, it was only for office use and didn't have a lot of hours of use.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for a couple years

Pros: Really low price. When it died, it went quietly and didn't take anything else with it.

Cons: Died after about 2.5 years (I always operated at 400-500W; well below the advertised 700W limit.)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: cheap at time bought for a decent 700 watt ps.

Cons: small issue with fan grate when first powered on but fixed by bending it out a little so it does not interfere with fan. so minus 1 egg

1 out of 5 eggs3 of 3 Flash/Pop/Stink FAILS <1 Day, <510 Watts

Pros: None

Cons: coolmax ZX-700

Bought three of these for light altcoin mining, expecting to sacrifice long term efficiency for short term savings.

WRONG!!!!!

Because i was mining, I was keenly interested in power consumption. I had a Kill-a-Watt (in the end two in series, as a sanity check) in-line at all times.

It is important to point out these were bottom mounted in a case with a bottom vent. Thus plenty of fresh, cool air of less than 70F was available at all times. This represents IDEAL cooling conditions: heaven help you if you top mount these with warm case air flowing through.

The first one popped in less than one hour at 607W at the wall. Referring to Ecova's best measured efficiency of %86.64 for this particular supply, that's 526W delivered from a supply rated for 672W on the 12V rail alone.

Second build, I was careful to undervolt the video cards.by flashing the BIOS. I ran the supply at 450 WaW for about a week. At that point I started fiddling with clocks and settled on settings that drew 540 WaW, or 468W delivered. The second supply popped within three hours.

Ticked at this point, I fired up the third machine on stock BIOS. At 593WaW/514W delivered the third one popped at 20 minutes.

Loud pop, bright flash, acrid smell from all three. Because I was launching or fiddling with each at the time of failure, I had the pleasure of visually witnessing all three..

I wouldn't operate ANY supply at its max rating, but I ran these with a %21-31+ "safety factor" and they still failed.

I should have taken the fact that they are not UL listed as my first clue, and the fact that Coolmax is universally decried as junk on the 'Net as my second. I can't understand how these survived Ecova's tests long enough to be rated. I suspect Ecova was supplied with a special built unit if not of an entirely different design, at least with different component mfrs.

Other Thoughts: Note I did not buy these at Newegg, I'm just so mad that I'll be posting this review to all the sites I regularly order from.

At this point, I figure I have this to look "forward" to I'll return all three for repair. Upon receipt, I'll install them in a machine purpose-built to draw 600W. They'll fail soon enough I'm sure, and I'll return them again. I expect to have to do this THREE TIMES for each supply, and then demand a complete refund under CA's "Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act", aka lemon law. After 3X shipping, I'll only get about $30 of the $150 I spent back but its better than nothing, and if we all did this Coolmax will go bankrupt as well it should. Then we'll all have one less fountain of fertilizer cluttering the PC parts landscape.

That's what these supplies are worth: nothing. Less than zero.

1 out of 5 eggscomplete garbage

Pros: absolutely NONE

Cons: this power supply is basically a 500watt, it claims "+12V@56A" but it shuts down at a 25amp draw. The first one I got FRIED when I tried to run 2 7870 video cards. They sent me a replacement with a 90 day warranty even tho I had 1.8 years left of a warranty. The replacement shuts down at half its rated amps. it is complete garbage and should be sued for false advertising.

2 out of 5 eggsdied less than one year

Pros: the power supply is quiet and worked great had great regulation and it didn't quite last a year in my setup witch i only ran for a few hours a week

Cons: when this power supply went out it gave no warning my computer started up ran for about 20 seconds and shut off just like someone pulled the power plug one day no lights or strange noise or smell just nothing

Other Thoughts: i probally wouln't buy another one of these when i pulled the cover off there was nothing really wrong with it that i could see but there was two smd resistors laying inside the metal housing and no one knows where they came from and there are no signs of where they could have come off the chip board

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: price
works great
nice packaging

Cons: the Mail in rebate was a pain in the neck.
you had to go to 3 different sites and make an account to print out a form. but when i read the fine print it says money will be shipped 8 weeks after the promotion ends. that seems a little long to me but hey 20$ is 20%
