5 out of 5 eggsNice Upgrade!

Pros: Stopped the restarts and shutdowns! Seems to provide my system with the power it needs to function.

Cons: Huge. Took up a large amount of space in case, and required the removal of drives in order to install. Any larger, and it would not have fit.

Other Thoughts: My ASUS Essentio desktop kept shutting down. Research indicated that the problem was that I was attempting to use both video cards that came installed on the system (one was on the MB, the other was a discrete card), and it did not have the power to support the output. This power supply stopped that issue.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat if you have the room for the MB cable

Pros: Quiet, provides power, unit mounting holes matched my Elite 120

Cons: The cables were WAY too long for my needs. All were modular except for the MB 24-pin cable. No mention of this on the advertisement, item description, or box. To be modular, should not all of the cables be modular?

Other Thoughts: I might have to look for another power supply for my Elite 120 case. I modded the case to include a CLosed Loop Cooler and the extra length of the cables get in the way of air flow inside the case.

I can use this in a bigger case, yes. Operationally, the power supply has brought the juice to the needy, the wanting, and the lighting for my build. Price was great. 80 Plus rating is great. I just have a smaller space for cables than the power supply brought to the project.

5 out of 5 eggsDat plat. The power savings are real son

Pros: My old power supply was out of control. The wires were going everywhere, obstructing air flow, crowding the case, and mostly not being used. It would vibrate, and was noisy. My old PSU wasn't 80 PLUS, and it drew a lot of power. When I would call it on the phone and ask it where it was, it would sass me and tell me that I wasn't even its real dad.

That was until I went to Dr. Phil and realized that I was a bad PSU enabler.

I had to get rid of my old PSU, and got this unit instead. It is quiet and produces no vibration. In my mini ITX build, the case is very restricted, so the cable management is essential. With fewer wires, the air flow is improved. Now my PSU politely asks to be excused from the dinner table and we work on model airplanes together. Thanks Rosewill! Thanks Dr. Phil!

Cons: Doesn't come with fresh pasta : /

5 out of 5 eggsSuprise

Pros: Basic fan, silicon wire cover, no LEDs, no fancy blades. Spins at 500 @ 2000 rpm like spec says. Rubber mounting grommets keep this fan very silent.

Cons: I could only get one. Newegg is out of stock. Had to find other brands with similar specs. Nexus D12SL-12PWM (clear plastic), Coolmaster Blade Master 120 (no rubber grommets).

Other Thoughts: I'll keep an eye out for these, everywhere.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It runs quietly and saves power. The cable management is great. You only use what you need which saves a lot of space in smaller cases (I'm looking at you form factor weirdos). The cabling is high quality material that is flexible and yet strong.

Cons: This unit at 550W is <i>slightly</i> under powered for most modern setups. I'm running on older hardware, and I'm getting crashes and blue screens. I'm sure it would run great on a machine used for grandma's facebook games, just no big graphics cards, heavy IO, or major multi-tasking.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Power Supply

Pros: Super quiet. Nice packaging. Comes with a handy case for the cables. Solid quality. An all around good buy.

Cons: No cons. Got exactly what was promised.

Other Thoughts: I bought when there was a deal that gave me a Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm. Got more than my money's worth.
