3 out of 5 eggsgreat power

Pros: great cable management, fan is quiet, i can barely tell it's on. always blows cool too.

Cons: psu is better for a top mount, sata power cables are a pain wiring from the bottom because they're upside down. also the cpu 2+2, the pci 6+2 and the mobo 20+4 were all wired with the adjoining socket on the wrong side. made it a pain to wire

3 out of 5 eggspluses might overcome minuses

Pros: Good looking power supply
Modular design with decent connectors
Noiseless
Efficient design
Price in Shell Shocker is fair if the rebate is honored. regular price is laughable.

Cons: Pretty huge. You might want to take a look at the dimensions before ordering.
Rebate seems like a barf bag swindler wrote it.
12 -16 weeks on rebates? I thought with high-powered computing this would turn into days. Obviously it's a gimmick to use YOUR money for operating capital. There's no way they need that long.
20 days to get your rebate filed -- smells of rip off. Get buyers to cut up the box, so it can't be returned.
If you don't circle the item on your invoice: DENIED! They just can't find it without that circle?
Didn't write the NewEgg item number on the envelope: DENIED!

Other Thoughts: Write your congressman and the department of commerce to push for regulations on rebates. They should:
Offer you a minimum of 30 days to file from the date of delivery.
Take no longer than offered for filing to respond and never more than 60 days.
Make every effort to process rather than reject submissions -- no games or hoops to jump through. JUST PROOF OF PURCHASE.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: This power Supply is very efficient. I picked this up when it was cheap and with a rebate. Despite what other say, this PSU does not sweat with a Core i7 920 and Crossfired HD6950 2GB cards.

Very Quiet as well. This PSU replace an Antec Quattro 850 that was noisy due to the 80mm fans, but this one has more current on the rails which matters on seems to run cooler as well. Very little hot exhaust

Cons: Only comes with one set of red PCI-E cables with the primary non-modular. I would have preferred to Crossfire on Rails 3 and 4 (More Current).

Other Thoughts: Comes with nice Cougar velcro ties and case badge. The CPU power cable is weird design but that is offset by the long length which works well with bottom mounted case PSUs.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't trust rebate

Pros: I own the bronze not the silver. Works fine, no problems

Cons: Cougar does not respond to e-mails and they do not honor their rebates. I feel the $25 they promised was a lie.

Manufacturer Response:

Please contact 800-909-6558 for rebate update. Rebate email box too many spams.
