Drive Your Power and Exceed Expectations
Astro GD Series is a fully modular single output, 80-Plus Gold certified power supply. With an H-shaped fan guard, Astro power supplies feature fully modular flexibility so you only use the cables you need.
Silent and Efficient Modular Power Supply
Pros: Its a very silent power supply. Even at full load it wont sound any louder than any of my case fans. Its modular so you wont have a clutter of unused cables. Great 80 plus gold efficiency which means you can count on saving power and saving a tree or two.
Cons: Nothing bad enough to knock off an egg although i had the same clicking noise as other users has noticed. See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: Initially when i assembled a gaming computer with this power supply i had the same very loud clicking sound the other user noted. I assumed it was the fan that was placed incorrectly or too close to the outside box. But when i opened up the power supply to try to see what was making the noise i noticed a large square piece of yellow duck tape tucked between two capacitors. This tape was the same color as tape placed around some components inside the power supply. Though this piece had no use since it was folded up as if it was about to be discarded. I simply removed the piece of tape and reassembled the power supply. Its been working perfectly and quietly ever since.

Pros: Nice modular power supply.
Cons: Fan clicked noisily against something on every rotation until i pressed on it through the mesh several times. This reduces my confidence in the make quality, and durability of the product.
Other Thoughts: Note: once the fan wasn't clicking against something it seems very quiet.
