5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU for the price

Pros: Good for the money, components are well worth the price. Very good voltage stability,good ripple suppression. Fan is easily replaceable (been fine for a year). I like the housing design and colors to as far as ascetics go with a orange bitfenix case. Cant complain

Cons: None to add here with my experience of the product!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

Pros: This is a very well built power supply. Looks great and functions very well. i am very satisfied with the quality of cougar products. its very quiet also i can barely hear it running.

the molex and sata connectors are spaced kinda funny but thats not a big deal for me.

Cons: i wish it had one or two more molex connectors.
It smelled kinda funny when i unboxed it.

Other Thoughts: Buy it. hands down. great product!
