The COUGAR GX series modular power supply is designed for extreme gaming users who demand high quality, highly efficient power for their high-end systems. It combines the most advanced innovations including Rapid Switch technology, DC-DC technology and CLC Filter design with Dynamic Multi-12V to deliver ultra-high 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, highly stable output (Ripple/Noise ‹1%), and perfect regulation (<3%).

Factor in the HDB (Hydro-Dynamic Bearing) 14cm fan, modularized cable design and multi-way SLI/CrossFireX capability, the COUGAR GX blasts ahead of the competition. Complete with Japanese-made capacitors, solid capacitors for 12Vs, 3.3V, 5V, and industrial grade protection including OCP, SCP, OVP, UVP, OPP and OTP, it ensures safe, reliable continuous operation for use with current and next-generation multi-core CPU & multi-GPU platforms.

  • newegg 80 PLUS Gold Certified The 80 PLUS Gold certified power supply provides high power efficiency of at least 87% at any load between 20% and 100%, saving you money on your electrical bill, reducing heat in your computer's system and prolonging its life.
  • newegg Dynamic Multi-12V Automatic dynamic load distribution on multi-12V line provides power separately to the GPU and the CPU. By helping reroute needed power from unused lines to support high-end graphics cards in SLI or CrossFireX mode, it provides high voltage stability to keep components safe.
  • newegg High Quality Components for High Performance at 50°C COUGAR uses highest durable 105°C Japanese capacitors on the GX series for uncompromised performance, reliability and lifespan. Solid caps for 12Vs, 3.3V, and 5V also provide high efficiency, reliability, and extend power lifespan. All these ensure non-stop high performance and full rated wattage at 50°C/122°F ambient temperature.
  • newegg Modular Cable Design The modular cables that reduce air friction help maximize airflow through the PC case. The modular design also simplifies installation as it allows unprecedented flexibility in using only those cables which are needed.
  • newegg HDB (Hydro-Dynamic Bearing) 14cm Fan Advanced HDB (HYDRO-Dynamic Bearing) fan provides best lifespan and super silent performance. Temperature-controlled design adapts its rotating speed to the PSU temperature. Even on its highest rotating level the fan is still quiet enough to be barely noticeable.
  • newegg 2-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support The COUGAR-GX700 includes 1x 6-Pin and 3x 6+2 Pin PCI-E power connectors to support dual high-end graphics card systems.

3 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: Modular
700W
Not DOA

Cons: Efficiency should have been rated Bronx, Silver with a stretch
Lack quality control
Annoying fan fooooo'ing sound

Other Thoughts: I was disappointed when I took this PSU out of the box. The power rating label has scratches on it, the fan screws appeared to have been worked at with a wrong size screw driver. Other than that, the PSU is clean, as though someone at the production line did some repair on it, got it to supply power and shipped it without going through all the spec parameters.

One annoying thing is that the fan appears to run at one speed regardless of power load, making this low foooo'ing sound you can hear from across the room

Efficiency is totally way off!! I bought this gold rated PSU to replace the 80plus Antec 550Plus PSU, save me a whopping 1.5W at 78W draw with the system at full idle. I decided to throw in the Rosewill 550W Gold rated PSU as FYI, it draws only 70.5W in the same system and conditions. The Rosewill PSU fan was so quiet that only the power LED told me that system was on, as compare to the annoying Cougar's foooo'ing fan sound you can hear from across the room.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Has worked flawlessly since install.

Cons: None of the horrors that I Have read about. Have never gotten a DOA on anthing. I tend to believe most problems reported are created by the users.

Other Thoughts: I probably will never push the ps too its limits, but will report problems if they occure.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid PSU

Pros: Price was nice for a 700w semi modular psu. ($139)
Best looking stock cable sleeves I have seen.
Not DOA.
Plenty of Cables provided.
Semi-modular.
Amazing quality.
Sleek design, matches up well with my AsRock Extreme 4.

Cons: Only Con I could find was the strong smell of paint when opening and first intial run of the unit. Not enough to take an egg off in my book.

Other Thoughts: Simply cannot go wrong for $139, wish I could of grabbed one it when it was a shell shocker but still would of pay $139 for this PSU any day of the week.

4 out of 5 eggsSilver n Gold

Pros: Great power supply...maintains efficiency at load. Excellent cables...perfect length for my needs.

Cons: Misrepresented as an 80 plus gold supply...it's really a silver, at least in the U.S. Their testing is done in Germany with 230v which is more efficient and they test with ambient temp at 23C which is not realistic, so their tests are skewed.

Other Thoughts: Given to me as a gift so I'm not complaining. It's way better than the one it replaced. If they billed this as an 80 plus silver I would give it 5 eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsNice PSU

Pros: Runs quietly, smooth and well. has detachable cables for less clutter inside the case. Nice cable ties too.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: i had to return ONLY cause it wasnt adequate for crossfire. For what im running It was minimum watts at 700 and needed 750 from what i read. I'm getting 850 to be sure though.

3 out of 5 eggsCool and quiet

Pros: 700watts modular power supply. I used only the cables I needed. Main rail has enough connections for startup SLI/Crossfire. Only one SATA cable was needed after that.

Cons: Started to draw and then "flicker" dimming the lights as it did. Quality control on the molex connectors is needed. Cannot give 4 or 5 star for this as I had to repair the connector.

Other Thoughts: At first, I thought this PSU was defective but upon closer inspection I found that the connection was not completely connected through the molex connection. Molex connectors are like that though and I just used my molex punch tool to set the connection right and now it all works like a charm.
