Manufacturer Response:

Hi ricky bobby,

Please send us an email at VIP@antec.com and we can replace the HCG-520 PSU for you under warranty. The ball bearings on the fan shouldn't be making the loud noise. We look forward to hearing from you - thanks.

5 out of 5 eggs520 watts of bronze 80+ quality for about $50

Pros: Easy to install
80+ Bronze Certified
Still supplying power for my computer and it's upgraded GPU (Radeon 6870)
Price
Plenty of Strong Wires for w/e u need including the newer GPU's Power inputs
Quite

Cons: To many of wires for the amount of power this PSU Supplies
The protective covering of the wires is very thick

Other Thoughts: This PSU supplies power to my HP Pavillion Elite 400f, with an upgraded GPU from the Radeon HD 5450 to a XFX Radeon HD 6870. To compensate for the increase in power required by the new GPU, I replaced the stock 300 watt PSU with this 520 Watt PSU. The Computer was bought new in October 2010, and the new GPU and PSU in early 2011. It is now mid 2012 and it is serving me fantastic!

1 out of 5 eggsuseless

Pros: long cables for bottom mount pc, powerful enough for a modern pc set up. quiet fan.

Cons: first one failed after 3 weeks of use, rma'd through antec, took over a month to get my new one, in the mean time i picked up a XFX core 650W. slow service, didn't seem to be informed on there own product. last antec product i ever bought.

Other Thoughts: i understand that sometimes things just break, but the slow service and brief vague emails and phone calls were the coffin nail.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great PSU, high amperage on the +12V. Large fan, very quiet. Cables and connectors are plentiful and just the right length.

Cons: So quiet it is hard to tell the fan is on.

Other Thoughts: Does have two connectors for a video card, for those power hungry monsters.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality PS

Pros: Simple, up-to-date PS with good cable length, and high-quality components throughout. 1. The fans are nearly silent, and give off very little ambient heat in the room. 2. Has all the flexible terminations you need to power a very nice computer.

Cons: If you are not using all of the cables, you will need to find a way to neatly tuck them in to the case somewhere.

Other Thoughts: I am NOT a fan of modular power supplies, because I have never had good luck with them. So, I tend to look at standard PS for my needs. As a result I bought one of these Antec PS made of high quality components. The unit gives off very little heat, and is dead quiet. I have 3 of them in various computers around my house. This PS fits nicely in my 2 aluminum cases, and I have been very satisfied with my purchase. I use one in my Linux desktop, and another in my VMware ESXi server. If I need more I will definitely buy additional Antec HCG units.
