3 out of 5 eggsDied after a year

Pros: The modular cables are nice for keeping your case nice and clean but I will never buy another again.The power supply worked fine for alittle over a year then the mobosupply line began to fail.I blame it on the modular design.

Cons: The totalwatts viewer is totaly useless... imho a ammeter would be alot nicer and more usefull.The modular design caused the failure since the 24pin connector on the supply would come lose and didnt make a good connection.Fan was very loud when anywhere over 40% imo. also the control doesnt fit a tsunami case properly.

Other Thoughts: it powered a a8n-sli deluxe, amd 3700+, 7800gt, 2ATA hard disks,2dvd burners,and 4 120mm fans rated at .45 amps. It failed shortly after i installed a waterpump rated at .4 amps andon full load i could sometimes hear the fans slow down for a moment leading me to beleave there wasnt enough power.
when i checked the 24pin connector was lose again and i reconnected it and the system bleeped on for a second and shut down.

4 out of 5 eggsTWV 500

Pros: Works well. Interesting to see power draw.

Cons: EXPENSIVE and does NOT match the picture New Egg has. I ordered this to fit in my X-Qpack because the connectors placed along the side. Product had connectors all along the bottom so it didn't fit. I ended up using it in a full tower.

Other Thoughts: New Egg UPDATE the photo...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Changing system

Pros: It has been going at it nonstop for 4 months. the only time it ever rests is for a restart.
the watts viewer although not as good as a line in meter still shows how much i am over clocking my components in terms of extra energy, not just voltage. the sheathing on the cables is also a nice extra touch.

Cons: whoever designed the organization of the modular cables took the easy way out. in the end i was using all but one of the modular cables and was using only 1 connector on three of them.

Other Thoughts: turning off the panel would be nice since it always shows a draw of 002w when off and it is bright.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PSU

Pros: Very Quiet. Easy to mount. Plenty of plugs/connectors. Excellent manual and labeling of specific plugs. Ive had it since August. Although it says SLI complient, it definatly isnt used for SLI. I bought it in a store and they told me immediatly its not for dual video cards.

Cons: Absolutly none.

Other Thoughts: I dont think its a big deal that it says its SLI. You've got to be realistic and know that 500w isnt enough

5 out of 5 eggsawesome! highly recommended!

Pros: well, its stable, had no problems, awesome blue led to see inside my nz*t Ap0llo case. the cables are the best, even has separate cables for the fans in your case. the modular cables really help, and are easy to work with. the cables are covered, even better! the watt watcher is cool, plus you can adjust the fan speed!

Cons: nothing! i really like this psu, it has awesome features.

Other Thoughts: you will not be dissed. my first uber build, and im running doom 3 on ultra with everything maxed out, 70 fps

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great PSU. I love how all the cables are detachable. So if you're like me.. and don't run multiple HD's or optical drives, you can remove these cables and save space in the case.

Cons: It says it's SLI capable, but.. 500W isn't enough for SLI. Should go 600W at the least.

Other Thoughts: Great PSU, if you only need 500W.

1 out of 5 eggsdied after 3 days of use

Pros: I liked the ability to control the fan speed.

Cons: it died after 3 days of use requiring an RMA and selection of another power supply.
The Total Watts viewer was useless to me.

Other Thoughts: Newegg RMA process was painless.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the Cash

Pros: Its an overall good power supply. The modual cables, total watts viewer, and adjustable fan speed make it worth the cash.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: It would have been a better idea to have an 80mm intake, and 80mm exaust fan in the power supply, instead of the one 120mm intake, but I suppose it works just fine as it is.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Power with all the extras

Pros: Very stable power even on high loads, total watts viewer is great for determining max power requirements, active PFC, fan speed can be adjusted, modular design is great for looks and airflow, version 2.0

Cons: (Not really a con but) the 24pin main power cable is a bit long for micro atx cases...

Other Thoughts: I use 2 of these (1 for my main rig and 1 for my test rig) and the TWV , SLi support, and modular cables make a very versitile combo. Version 2.0 Active PFC too!

5 out of 5 eggsRevised

Pros: Recieved the revised edition of this unit a couple days ago. Most the problems people were complaining about have been fixed. The 2x12 connector fixed were the 2x2 will not pop out of socket. A 2x4 connector now for the CPU power..this is split so it can be used as 2x2 for older boards. Also color coded hookups, even labeled, also the fan no so loud on high..and apparently work inside the unit..the whole thing revised. I also have the earlier version and it is working well afer 7 months or so..Both these units are powering two Thermaltake III towers..loaded to the gills.

Cons: Fan controller and TWV wiring a mess..cured this with wire loom. Other than that..excellent dual rail PSU.

Other Thoughts: This revised unit is showing less wattage used than with the older version. Either I have not properly connected the wiring or else the dual rails have been upgraded also. Thanks Newegg for the best of service.
