Pros: Its allowed me to use an old CPNS9500 on a Gigabyte G31-ES2L & E3300. Was the old green fan nvidia version I lost the 775 hardware for (or did it not come with, oops). Cheap!
Cons: Not a perfect fit on said motherboard, not really Zalman's fault. Had to do lots of filing on one corner to get around a cap, and little bits of filing around other areas, but the plastic is thick enough its still plenty sturdy. Also because of caps around the socket the "L" clip had to be faced toward the memory slot, requiring it to be bent, ended up snapping it in two, but the clip is still plenty functional.
Other Thoughts: Its great they offer these so cheap, even if it has to be modified to fit. Sure saved a good chunk of money for a budget build on not having to buy a new HSF when theres one lying around! A few files, some cursing, some begging, and a little time turned out to breathe even more life out of a 4 year old cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works, never had any problems with it at all. Ordered 2 and both are still trucking along just fine. Wanted to sleeve it, but still 1 year on the warranty. Good build quality. Still completely silent. Connectors are tough and still in great condition after being added and removed hundreds of times.
Nice little storage bag. I would purchase more of these if the price is right.
Cons: Sleeving job is horrible, is it really better than none at all? Attached cables are fairly short, if bottom mounting in a full tower make sure you have 4/8 pin and 24 pin extentions on hand. Kinda pricey compared to some better offerings if you don't factor in the rebate. Not really a con, but the 8 pin and 4 pin cpu are separate wires, would've liked to seen a 4x4 split plug, but really its only 1 wire total that will need to be hidden, fits nicely between my psu and the mobo tray in a CM Cosmos, tuck it and forget it.
Other Thoughts: There is a lot of bad reviews on these for reasons that aren't the Psu itself. Modular or not isn't a pro or con. Read the description on things before you buy them. Rebates do not affect the performance of a product, buy expecting not to get it, and if it comes its a perk, don't bash the product because either the rebate center messed up or you didn't send it in time. FYI both my rebates came back, just took 3 months.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast , quiet , smooth operation.
5 year warranty
Excellent price and performance per gb
Cons: Absolutely none!
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace and old 320 gig wd blue that was starting to get quite loud. Speeds are slightly faster, but not anything mind boggling. Did a lot of research weighing this with a velociraptor paired with a 1tb green drive, and Im glad I decided on this instead. Soon a ssd's come down in price, this guy will be storage.READ FULL REVIEW
