4 out of 5 eggsIt works pretty well

This review is from: COUGAR CMX 1000 COUGAR-1000CMX 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Yes, flexible cable management Active PFC Power Supply Haswell ready

Pros: well I clocked my cpu to 4.8GHz stable fx-8320 something I was never able to do on my old xion 1000watt psu I'm happy with that(the old psu finally started showing symptoms when video would not post every other boot cheap capacitors)

Cons: 2 things that kill me with psu manufacturers please start including 24pin and 8pin connectors 500+watt psus no need for 20 pin go straight for 24 the 4pin molex was very lacking only one strand and a few strand of sata (i will admit I'm a little old school in some ways but seriously would of it killed to include one more strand of 4pin molex especially with some psu manufacturers some of these modular psu's have proprietary connectors so what ever is supplied by that manufacturer is the only thing that will fit besides with 4 pin molex its fairly easy to get sata power adapters

Other Thoughts: thankfully no led's in the fan light thank you thank you thank you (I'm not a huge fan of led's all over the place) 6-12V rails thats why I bought it it handles over clocking my system with ease I'm happy

This review is from: COUGAR CMX 1000 COUGAR-1000CMX 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Yes, flexible cable management Active PFC Power Supply Haswell ready

Pros: Good value. Works very well. not all modular but uses flat cables. SATA and MOLEX cables are modular, but only one Molex cable. Fan is sufficient and powers up and down as needed.

Other Thoughts: yes great price for sturdy power supply

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good!

This review is from: COUGAR CMX 1000 COUGAR-1000CMX 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Yes, flexible cable management Active PFC Power Supply Haswell ready

Pros: Lots of available power, modular, nice appearance for a gaming rig (red/black).

Cons: Only one single molex cable came with the PSU, which has four molex plugs on it. That required me to have to run the cable under my motherboard in order to get power to the extra GPU power plug on the board, and then caused me to have to put my fan plugs on top of my pair of GPUs. Also, each PCI-E cable only has a single plug on the end, so if your GPU has a pair of 6 or 8 pin plugs, you'll have to run two cables for it as I did.

Other Thoughts: Overall its a good power supply for the price. Don't know about reliability yet as I haven't had it all that long, but its working very well so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for one gpu

This review is from: COUGAR CMX 1000 COUGAR-1000CMX 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Yes, flexible cable management Active PFC Power Supply Haswell ready

Pros: Great psu for a single high end gpu possibly two mid to low end gpus
runs everything else perfectly
great design and and flat modular cables for maximum air flow and cable management
massive fan for efficient case and psu cooling

Cons: does not run more than one high end gpu

Other Thoughts: I would have given it 5 eggs but it's doesn't quite support my two 380x's like I need
I suggest buying a 1.2kw or higher for two or more high end gpus

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

This review is from: COUGAR CMX 1000 COUGAR-1000CMX 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Yes, flexible cable management Active PFC Power Supply Haswell ready

Pros: -Works great
-No problems so far
-Looks cool
-Mostly silent

Cons: None really other than that the alignment with the case was a slight problem.
Also had a problem with connection to the motherboard, whereas, the computer seemed to not receive power unless the 24-pin main power was jiggled on the mobo, but at the same time this might have just been the mobo's fault.

Other Thoughts: I did take note of all the reviews that said it was actually orange, but it was really just the box. The unit itself has a 3-finish paint job that is dark/candy red. The 3rd finish makes it actually look slightly glittery but it looks sick in the Cooler Master Storm Trooper case with the clear side panel.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete Dead After 2 years 9 months....

This review is from: COUGAR CMX 1000 COUGAR-1000CMX 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Yes, flexible cable management Active PFC Power Supply Haswell ready

Pros: - Great power supply in the beginning, powered my i7-4770k, R9 290 (previously a pair of crossfired Radeon HD 7870s), etc.. etc.

Cons: I started to notice my motherboard acting strange two years into this power supply. I thought it was a motherboard issue. Sometimes my mouse or keyboard wouldn't power up, so I switched to a different USB port, that would fix the problem temporarily. I the started having issues with the onboard sound. It would randomly stop working. I would disable it in the BIOS, wait a day or so and re-enable it... again a temporary fix until the next time it occurred. Then, my monitor with the display port stated it could not receive the correct refresh rate from my R9 290. Uh oh! That was a huge problem. I also could never overclock my i7-4770k after a day or two it would eventually start becoming unstable. January 26th, 2016 my computer would not even power up. Very disappointed and I NEEDED my PC, so I replaced the power supply with an AZZA Titan 1000watt from my daughter's PC (replaced hers with an OCZ Modstream Pro 500watt). Over two weeks later, ZERO PROBLEMS! I can overclock... My onboard sound works perfectly. My gaming keyboard and mouse have no problems. The problem was the COUGAR CMX 1000! :(

Other Thoughts: Maybe I was just unlucky having it last for less than the warranty period... I hope Cougar will fix or replace it. There support system has been down since 02/05/16. Ugh!
