5 out of 5 eggsMight be Good but not in 700c

Pros: It had all the connections I need and it met the power requirements I was looking for considering I was previously using a Cooler Master 460W Extreme. Also it's 80 Plus Certified and Active PFC

Cons: None, but it didn't seem to help the HPPAV 700c I put it in as a replacement for the Cooler Master 460W Extreme. Not only did it not help but I smell wires burning after I put it in and turned the computer on. However, it did POST to the HP screen, but that's as far as it got and I checked the wires and couldn't figure out what I smell burning or melting whatever you want to call it.

Other Thoughts: HP Pavilion 700c Specs

3 out of 5 eggs2nd time the charm???

Pros: 2nd P/S seems to be working as advertised...first one was DOA

Cons: as stated the first came DOA, 2 eggs for the RMA hassle, so for the replacement is working as expected.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this one last as long most of the Antec P/S I have had in the past...time willl tell.

5 out of 5 eggs4 Years

Pros: Lasted for 4 years before the fan stopped running. Worked great. Never gave me any problems up until that point.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Not bad for the price at all. I have never taken a PSU apart before to replace the fan so I just bought another one of these.

5 out of 5 eggsLasted Close to 6 Years

Pros: My power supply finally died last night. But for close to 6 years, it has been running 24/7 on my main gaming rig. It has seen 3 motherboards, 5 video cards, and 4 processors.

I keep my machine at near 100% processing power trying to find cures for diseases through World Community Grid. The GPUs were all power hungry upper mid range cards. About the only time it wasn't on was durring power failures or bad storms.

Cons: Had to get a SATA cheater. I knew that when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: What I am saying is this power supply has been an absolute work horse. Very reliable, and you can't go wrong getting it.

5 out of 5 eggs5 year review

Pros: This PSU was my first PSU I bought when I built my first PC in 2007, around the time LGA775's were common: C2D E4500, evga 7600GT. It is still going VERY strong after 5 years. The title "basiq" I think reflects it's non-high powered nature. But if you need rock solid reliability, my machine can be proof of that. Ive 'upgraded' to an evga GTS 450 and a q6600 and it still chugs along just fine. Our neighborhood has frequent brown outs (short ones, like lights dim and tv power's off) but this PSU hasn't let my PC restart at all.

Also I have 7 case fans, 2 cpu fans, and I extra fan (all 120mm Cooler Master item #N82E16835103052) in a old CM690 case. Idk if fans drink alot of power juice, but i thought i'd mention that if they do.

Cons: The 80mm fan has gotten noisier over the years. Noisier in terms of hearing the blades spinning. Accumulation of dust probably is the problem though. Also the cords aren't sleeved but it's really no big deal.

Other Thoughts: I should say though that I keep my PC on 24/7. The only occasion where I turn it off is for vacation or when the power goes out. But other then that its on all the time. So again, this thing is rock solid and has not failed me once.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price
500W

Cons: Cables too short

Other Thoughts: This power supply is okay, but the cables are a little short. They really need 3-4 more inches to allow routing them a little better, especially if you put an optical drive in the top bay.

4 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: I have used several of these power supplies in the past for repair or upgrades. They have been reliable and the modular cords keep the computer case tidy. The large fan does a good job cooling the unit without too much noise.

Cons: This latest unit smoked on power up. Unfortunately, it took out the hard drive in the system too. I am going through a RMA. I see a few other posts on DOA and hopefully this is not a trend with these power supplies.
