An important tip from one of our users: don't just check total power output, find out what you need in the way of current on each power rail. If you need 20 A on your +12V rails and the supply only has 15A, it doesn't matter how many watts the supply puts out: don't buy it. Make certain that you have ENOUGH rails, too: sometimes, you need more than just two +12V rails for your setup.

Replacing an existing power supply is easier: just get a replacement that meets or exceeds the specifications of the old one. (You can usually find those printed on the side of the supply.)

That said, here's a power supply that is compatible with most ATX format motherboards, puts out 600 watts of power (see specifications for exact distribution). Could this be your next power supply?

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: For the price this has been good. It's lasted for years with no problems.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It has a lot of connectors for the time of it's construction, and a lot of foresight as to how the technology would grow. I am upgrading this machine's video card to a 2012 GTX 560 and this PSU is good enough to handle it.

4 out of 5 eggsReview

Pros: Great power and connections for the price.

Cons: after owning it for a while I have noticed a few things..

1.) The cables weren't quite long enough to reach the top two slots on my COOLER MASTER RC-690 case. That was pretty dissappointing, but not really a big deal.

2.) It would be nice if the cables were wrapped in the black mesh for looks, but no biggie there either.

3.) Lastly, the only other thing I have noticed is there could be more sata plugs, for computers being built now days, you think you would get more.

Other Thoughts: personally, if I were you, I would look into a different hard drive. I haven't noticed any smell like the last guy mentioned, and it hasn't caused me any real problems since I got it back in February. For this price though, it wouldn't hurt to just get different power supply.

4 out of 5 eggsAll right

Pros: Has Survived almost 2 years now.
This PSU came in a computer I bought from CyberPower (didn't think I knew enough at the time to build my own.)
Originally there was an EVGA8800GTS 320mb, 2GB of RAM, 320GB HDD and C2D 2.13ghz CPU on a P5N-E SLI MB. I have since changed out the basic RAM for 2 sticks of Corsair XMS2 DHX 2gb per stick, OC'd the CPU to 2.85ghz and put in a Xfi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty sound card, Netgear wireless card and just last month a Palit 8800GT1gb sonic (I think I'll add another if this PSU will handle it. . . just need to make room already have the card).

Cons: first time I turned it on the fan made a very loud rattling noise like others have described. to fix this I took the grill off and flipped the fan (it was blowing in now it blows out) the rattling never showed up again.

Other Thoughts: My whole system stays around 82-91 degrees Farenhiet with stock CPU fan, 2 80mm's and 1 120mm so I figure turning the fan around hasn't killed it. temps under load don't go above now with the 8800GT from palit its cooler is much better then the EVGA stock.

4 out of 5 eggsOkay for me

Pros: Does what its supposed to, as long as you take care of it.

Cons: Many others have had the same problem where the psu fan was failing. It began to make very loud rattling noises, that would stop when the fan stopped.

Other Thoughts: I solved the fan problem by opening the power supply (voiding the warranty. idc though), removed the fan, and oiled the sleeve bearing of the fan. i did this a few months back and ive had no problems since.

2 out of 5 eggsPoorly made fan

Pros: Nice long cables, lots of connectors.

Cons: The fan is poorly made. It rattled after only a short while, I had to adjust the screws, eventually removing the grate altogether. It would stop occasionally, the PSU would overheat and shut down.
The fan has now frozen up completely after about a year of ownership, and overheats in a few minutes.

Other Thoughts: Do not recommend Cooler Master.

1 out of 5 eggsLook for something else

Pros: It will cover all your basic needs.

Cons: Short life span.

Other Thoughts: Fan started to make an odd noise after 2 months, kind of a whining noise. After 6 months the fan quit working. Going to try something different.

3 out of 5 eggsNot what I had expected.

Pros: Cheap,good enough power to run my ATI 3870x2 card...Sometimes........

Cons: Noisy,makes room hot!Intermittently shut my entire PC down during gfx heavy games....Mine died in November of 08...

Other Thoughts: I actually had to RMA mine through the Coolermaster site.I submitted the RMA on the 8th of Jan,09 and am FINALLY expecting it on March,6,09!The company has since tried to rectify the problem with the fan shroud killing the PSU indefinitely after 9 months of quirky ownership.

They apologized and told me I would be getting a replacement with the fans used on their other PSU models.

Here is an excerpt from a live chat I had with the company regarding my slow rma process:

Thank you for contacting Cooler Master. My name is Marvin. How may I assist you today?

Anthony Sherling:
Hello Marvin,I was told my psu would ship out on the day of the 24th,my rma status has not been changed

Yes, it was delayed for the reason we were receiving upgrades for the extreme power series, you will be getting an extreme power plus 600w, with the same type of fan as our real power series/ucp series, MUCH quieter:End quote.

So I can only hope they start selling them with

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Great value.
Heavy, which usually indicates high-quality parts.

Cons: Not Active PFC
