4 out of 5 eggsPretty good for the price

Pros: This is a good little power supply for the price, but it's not a 500W power supply. OEM is Andyson. I opened it up (I know it voided the warranty but if it breaks I will fix it myself) and on the 12V, it only has a single 30A rectifier. No dual rails, but that's still 360W of power. Although I think this thing combined load could only handle 350W because the transformer isn't very big (ERL-35) and would probably saturate beyond that.

With how power efficient the new components are getting, this thing could still power a beefy gaming system. This thing could power an Ivy Bridge i5 with a GTX 670 with no issues

Very quiet thermally controlled fan. Efficiency is give or take 74-78% which isn't bad at all considering it doesn't have PFC.

Nicely sleeved, good packaging

Cons: Not 500W, not enough 12V filtering (Only one 3300uF cap) only 1 PCI-E 6+2 connector

Other Thoughts: This thing uses Sun primary caps, and the rest are Jun Fu and Teapo. While not the best choice of caps, they aren't exactly horrid either. I replaced them all with Panasonic and Chemi Con caps but it should still last a while with the stock caps.
