5 out of 5 eggsStill great in 2012

Pros: I bought this power supply 4 years ago with my Core2Duo setup. That motherboard finally died and I replaced it with an Asus Sabretooth Z77. I was worried that I would yet again need to upgrade my perfectly-working PCPC supply with something that had a different connector, but I did not! I blew the dust out and stuck it back in the chassis and it's running the new system like a champ, as always.

You can't beat a power supply that outlives the rest of the system.

Cons: They don't sell it anymore, I guess. I'm sure whatever PCPC sells to replace it is great.

5 out of 5 eggsStrong Silent Type

Pros: Needed more watts for a graphics card upgrade and this filled the bill perfectly. Installed easily, always a pleasure. The build seems very solid, and the cables are long enough and apparently well made. I use this computer in the living room, so I don't want to hear it running at all, and this PS does a great job of that. Couldn't be happier.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid PSU

Pros: Designed in California.. Quiet and stable. Upgraded from an Antec 350W and this one is so quiet that every thing else in my case sounds louder. Comes in a nice black finish with black cable wraps. You won't regret getting one of these.

Cons: Assembled in China. Cables are REALLY long.. but that's not really a bad thing. If you are using a case mounting adapter plate the holes are a bit too high.

Other Thoughts: The 20+4 motherboard power connector splits apart to provide a 20 pin connection.. in the photo it looks like a solid 24 pin.. Don't be confused, you can use this in either a 20 or 24 pin main-board socket. Perfect for my full-tower server case, plenty of power connections and extremely long cables. Newegg is great. I will probably be a Newegg customer for life.

5 out of 5 eggsI know its there cuz the PC is on

Pros: Very quiet. Strong build Quality. Plenty of connectors.

Cons: Maybe too many connectors. Had to find room to stuff the extras.

Other Thoughts: My video card recommends a 600w plus PSU, but this guys powering it fine. No issues with gaming, motherboard BIOS shows all voltages spot on.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat buy

Pros: Used this to replace the generic 350W power supply that came with my Dell Inspiron computer to run a new graphics card I also bought. It fit (a tight squeeze, but it did eventually go in) and so far has been running smoothly and quietly. I couldn't be happier. Shipped quickly and arrived on time.

Cons: none that i can think of!

5 out of 5 eggsPC Power and Awesome!

Pros: Very Nice 500w.
Came with all the connections I need and then some.
Cords are very long! Will reach anywhere you need them to!
All cords are mess wrapped for some nice cable management.

Cons: It doesn't make my computer faster?
You can really only hit or miss with a power supply.

Other Thoughts: Does what it needs to do, very awesome array of connectors. Only has one fan, but I guess that's enough.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: I have always had nothing but good performance from PC Power & Cooling. The last one I had lasted for over 5 years and I'd still be using it except that my wattage needs outgrew it. Plenty of Amps on the Single 12v rail. Powers all my stuff with no problems.

Cons: really just a quibble. Had to mount it in what I consider to be an upside down position in my case. (Coolermaster Centurion 5 CAC-T05)

Other Thoughts: it'll handle all this without a hiccup.

5 out of 5 eggsMy HHD's Now Make More Noise than My PSU..

Pros: "Very" silent.. plenty of length on psu cables to do a clean job with cable management. Wire sleaving is flexable/well constructed. Would never use anything besides PCP&C from here on out with future builds.

Cons: None. Would like to see a 500W modular version of this psu, but not really a con, more of a suggestion/wish. A build/Dell pc that is going to use this size of psu probably isn't going to need the extra 6-pin power for sli, since most are only running single pci-e vid cards (but doesn't hurt anything reguardless having the extra).

Other Thoughts: Don't get caught up in any of the debates about PCP&C psu's only having one 12V rail.. more rails don't make a psu better.. This psu will get clean power to everything that wants it. This also works as a replacement in a Dell, which I put it in an Optiplex 745 full tower, the same time I installed a 9800gt (300W psu wasn't going to cut it). If you are trying to decide between the "Dell replacement" version and this, either should work. 1 of the 4 psu mount screws are a little tight getting in the corner mount hole, which is what I'm assuming the main difference is with a mount pattern. It was no effort getting it installed, the 1 screw is just a little tight up against the pc case.
