4 out of 5 eggsWhy don't you read

Pros: Good Brand name, I have had good luck with these power supplies.

Cons: Having to sort through reviews of people who just don't get it.

Other Thoughts: To "Zero Power" guy and anyone who read his review. A 8800 takes a SLi PSU and this isn't one, so if you hooked this up to one you should be happy it didn't brick your expensive video card, instead of giving this a low rating I suggest you read the minimum hardware requirements. I would also suggest you change your somewhat high understanding to "I don't read" or "somewhat not good with instructions" Really all that hardware and you tried to run a PSU with 15A on the 12V rails, get a grip.

1 out of 5 eggsZero power

Pros: None..?

Cons: I bought this PSU to power up my Q6600 Quad, GeForce 8800, 4 Gigs Ram, 320 SATA HD, and a DVD Burner. With all this, the PSU wouldn't turn on my computer and would start shutting itself down in 3 second intervals.. Pretty frustrating. I'm guessing it had to be the PSU now that everything was perfectly well connected. Anyways, no refund so I guess I'm stuck having to buy a new one.

Other Thoughts: I guess its just my bad luck, for I read that this PSU would load an 8800, but I guess it wont load an 8800 and a Intel Quad Core.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Works great. Never any power issues. I have had this unit for about 1.5 years and never had an issue. Plenty of connectors and cables length is great for large cases. All the cables are sleeved and heatshrinked which makes it look very neat. Powers my 3.8 cpu, nVidia 7800GTX 256mb, 3 sata hard drives, two dvd burners, liquid cooling system, and 3 120mm case fans just fine.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsEasy, cheap.

Pros: Great product! Well made, solid construction. Cables are all mesh wrapped, which cleans up your case and makes installation a lot easier. 120mm fan is extremely quiet--I can't even hear it running. Steady voltage readings, does everything you would want a PSU to do

Cons: No modular cabling. Although it is still not extremely common to have modular cabling, it makes it SO much easier. Also, cables are a little on the long side, but that is not necessarily a bad thing

Other Thoughts: Great PSU, bought to replace old Hiper unit that was DOA. No LEDs if that is your thing.

5 out of 5 eggsStable and Reliable

Pros: Got this power supply over a year ago and is still going strong. I have never had a problem with it. Plenty of power for my 8800GTS. Even though in the specs it says 15amps on the dual +12V rails, they can go to 17.5 for a nice total of 35AMPs on the +12v rails. If you look on the side of the PSU pic. In parenthesis it will say PEAK OUTPUT: then each +12v is 17.5.

Cons: Works great. Only one PCI-Express connector. The new Bluestrom has two though.

Other Thoughts: Powers my system: AMD AthlonX2 3800-2GB SuperTalent-EVGA8800GTS-MSI NForce4 motherboard-2 DVD-250GB WD HD-this wonderful PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and plenty of power

Pros: FSP is a great brand of PSU. Plenty of power for my e6600, 965P-DS3, and 7900 GS. It is much quieter than other PSUs I've worked with and the sleeved cables are a bonus at this price point.

Cons: Modular would have been even better, but I was able to hide my unused connectors well.

Pros: This PSU is just by far the best psu for the price point and the company is great too. Its FSP, who would have thought?
