1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked great until fan started dying.

Cons: Fan started going out after about a year and a half of ownership. Very noisy and occasionally stops spinning.

Other Thoughts: This is a common problem. I won't be buying Antec again.

2 out of 5 eggsLow end PSU for shorttime use

Pros: Strong connectors and organized cable. Very cheap after rebate for 2012 standard.

Cons: Cheap , Cheap , Cheap ... Clicking sound from the fan after only 1 year of on and off use. Very bad no matter how cheap this PSU was

Other Thoughts: Antec is usually good but this PSU was a fail from Antec

2 out of 5 eggsvery loud/high pitched ticking noise from Fan

Pros: Cheap
400 watts continous

Cons: Bad Quality Fan

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these for backup servers. the 1st one I installed had the ticking problem. Not going to waste more money to ship will fix myself with spare fan I have laying around, when I need it. 2nd PSU seems to be working ok so far.
Disappointed that something like a fan is causing this issue as the spec sheet brags about it being "high quality" double ball bearing. As you can see others are having the exact same issue and even had it happen again from RMA so they aren't even resolving the issue, not going to take the risk of them replacing it with another junk fan.

5 out of 5 eggsStellar

Pros: Has run my i5-3570 rig with a Sapphire 6870 without any problems. I wouldn't SLI with it, but I prefer a decent PSU at lower wattage to a higher wattage off-brand PSU any day. It also helps that I got this one dirt cheap after a sale and a rebate.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I think most people over-buy on their PSU these days. Crack open any mass-produced pc brand and you'll find shockingly low wattages with no problems. Newer processors, ssds, and (some) lower-wattage video cards mean you don't need 1000W to get great performance anymore.

2 out of 5 eggsBleh

Pros: Cheapish (not really)

Cons: Fan very loud clicking after 2 years. Have to replace the unit the fan is so bloody annoying.

Other Thoughts: figure I would go with this instead of seasonic; first psu that had a bad fan; used to use antec a lot but I think maybe I shoudl just pay a little more and find something better built. I mean fans are cheap at the oem level no real reason not to use a high quality fan. Anyways this is very annoying - not so much just the cost of replacement but the time it'll take to pull the old one.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after a year of almost no use

Pros: Large, quiet fan. When it worked, seemed to work well.

Cons: Got this on a deep discount sale, so I could have a spare sitting around to swap things in. Eventually, I put it with an older system ( nothing special or overclocked - Core2Duo, 5450 video card, HD, DVD, nothing else) that I had parts for, had that computer powered on maybe 1-2 days (total), then didn't use it for some months. Tried to turn it on. Cycled off about a second later, and MB went into an infinite start/stop cycle. Tried it with a different MB, and that one couldn't even show video on startup.

Will be bugging their tech support as it's supposedly still under warranty. Just sitting around getting maybe 2 days (40-50 hours) poweron time in a year should be excellent for a PSU.

2 out of 5 eggsRandom LOUD clicking noise

Pros: Seems to be enough power for my basic gaming rig

Cons: Random clicking noise!! Appears to be an unstable fan (I can stop the fan and the noise stops). It doesn't happen all the time but is extremely aggravating when it occurs (even my wife is ready to throw my new build out because of the annoyance). Going to contact antec about options..this should not be happening. My last rig had a basic 600 watt antec PSU in it and it lasted for 5 years and was a quiet as a mouse..this one is REALLY annoying).

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat power supply

Pros: Silent as far as I can hear. Runs smoothly a core i5 3570k, an ssd, and a gtx 570 .
I think it has good efficiency. Idle power draw at the plug 36W (without the graphics card) and 69W (with the graphics card). Seems efficient.

Cons: There is only one 6 pin pci-e connector. Had to convert from two molex connectors to get the second 6 pin pci-e for the gtx 570.

5 out of 5 eggsGood power supply

Pros: Lots of connectors. Actually too many for my own use.
Cool color. Quiet. Stays cool.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The cable wrapper is a good idea but it makes the cable a little bulky. I guess you can't have it both ways.
