5 out of 5 eggsThis PSU is a good buy & quality!

Pros: A very high quality PSU! It has received excellent reviews at the websites I visited... never was rated lower than 4.5 out of 5 stars or 9 of 10. Good heavy construction and solid workmanship. The exterior finish seems to be powder-coated, which is very scratch-resistant.

Modular design is easy to work with and the cable are stiff, which is a sign to me that Bgears is using heavy gauge wiring. The sleeving and heatshrink fittings are very well assembled and show a high level of QC. The cables are of long lengths so they'll fit just about any case except for the huge server towers. Fit my Lian-Li PC-7F case with no problems. Runs cool and the fan is VERY quiet! After running for over 12 hours the outside of the case is barely lukewarm!

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: You can't go wrong purchasing this PSU. Rock stable, cool running, quiet and very well made.

5 out of 5 eggsIdeal PSU for Tight Fitting Builds!

Pros: First off, this is a very high-quality PSU. It's nice & heavy, really well made. It has all the right specs like auto-sensing voltage, SLI/Crossfire certification, dual 12-volt rails, very stable voltage ratings, 135mm cooling fan, etc. But the real cool feature is its "pigtail-type" modular design. Instead of plugging the modular cables directly to the back of the unit, you plug them to a series of flex-sleeved cables that exit from the PSU thru a reinforced port. This design allows you to use this PSU in a very tight enclosure since you don't need a lot of clearence to plug the cable in. Also, you get a lot of cable: fully flex-sleeved, a ton of connectors and long enough for any installation! Very quiet & cool during operation.

Cons: None really. Pigtail cables from the case are super-stiff, but that's a trade-off for their durability. Also, this a standard, full-size PSU...make sure you it'll fit in your Media/LAN-box case.

Other Thoughts: Just the right PSU for my box: Conroe E6600, EVGA 630i/7150, EVGA 8800 GTS, 4 gigs Mushkin DDR-800 RAM, bGears b-Envi LAN case, etc. Plenty powerful enough for it all! Cable legnth is long enough for standard ATX cases. Hard to imagine a Media or LAN build needing more PSU than this. Got it at a great price...thanks Newegg!!
