2 out of 5 eggsIts Ok...Kinda

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Cheap Price

Cons: Worked for a little over a year before it started malfunctioning.Computer randomly shuts down. Although it has not happened to me there are many other cases of this power supply killing peoples motherboards

Other Thoughts: When buying this product theirs a lot of luck involved you might get a DOA, Or one that breaks after or year but if you get lucky enough it might actually turn out to work properly. E.V.G.A is really a hit or miss company when it comes to Power supplies.

5 out of 5 eggsWork great. Great price.

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Reliability and good rating for the price.

Cons: The only thing that would make this PSU better is if it had a modular design.

Other Thoughts: This PSU has 2 times what I need for power, according to the PSU calculators that I used. The reason I got it was due to the reviews, the 40 amp 12v rating which would be more than enough for my GPU, and the price. I used it in a new system build and have not had any issues.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for budget PSU and 80 plus Bronze!

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: well for the price you get a good solid 500 watts of continuous power rated at 40c. I have a gtx 970 on this and it power fine. I only BUY EVGA power supplies.

Cons: its only 500 watts.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a budget PSU untill i can afford the 1000w EVGA psu i want, but i have to upgrade my computer piece by piece now that its built tyo what i want. this PSU fit the price and performance. 5+ for EVGA products.

2 out of 5 eggsEasy setup, but bad PSU

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Easy to get my cables routed like I needed to

Cons: Bad PSU. Lasted me about 2 months before a power surge got it.

Other Thoughts: Don't recommend this PSU.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value, not quite silent fan

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Looks nice, good cables, A Very good value if you get it with the rebate.

Cons: The fan is not exactly silent. There is a clicking mechanical noise coming from the motor. It's louder than the noise of the air flowing through the blades on low rpms. It's not terribly loud and would probably not notice it in a gaming rig, but I would hesitate using this in a HTPC because the noise might get annoying.

Other Thoughts: Comparing this to other power supplys I have used, for instance the Corsair CS430, which has one of the quietest fans I have ever heard in a PSU.

Cons: None so far

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: cheap

Cons: It makes too much noise, the output is not stable, my system crashes very often when switched to this power supply. There is very strange smell when turned on.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this cheap power supply, it can destroy your motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat budget PSU but misleading marketing!

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Can't comment on longevity yet, but:
-quiet, almost silent (budget system with i5 and 130W GPU)
-easily powers everything, no problems with included connectors (important in a non-modular psu)
--...it works well. basically.

Cons: I read that this was Haswell "compatible", which essentially means that it supports the new C6/C7 power off state of Haswell CPU's. IT IS NOT. This is not a big deal, as my motherboard (GA-h97n-wifi) supports disabling the C6/C7 state, but if these states are not disabled, the computer will not wake up from sleep. Mine would briefly spin up the fans, cut all power, then power on again and nothing would display (required a hard reboot to fix).

Easily fixable, but scary because it looks like the PSU is dying. BAD FORM to mislead the consumer with marketing...
