Pros: I wouldn't know, since I never got it connected to anything.
Cons: I've had easier time with Molex connectors. A friend purchased this for a system build I'm doing for him. I thought "hey, good price, decent reviews, modular, what could go wrong?"
The connectors. The connectors went wrong. I tried every SATA power cable on every connector on the PSU itself, and not a single one went in smoothly.
I tried multiple connectors both sides... didn't work.
I tried wiggling one in, including shifting the cables on the back like you sometimes have to do with poorly built Molex... didn't work.
I tried using a little bit of extra elbow grease, since it looked like the connectors made nice tight connections... oops! Pushed the connectors out the back of the cable AND cut up my fingers! Just like Molex, but with extra injury!
I'm having my friend return this, and using my spare Cooler Master V550 on this build. This is either poor QA or poor design - either way, I no longer have confidence in this brand. An extremely poor first impression.
Other Thoughts: Quite frankly, I'm glad I wasn't the one who spent the money on this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Quiet.
Cons: - Smaller models don't have a dual 8-pin connector option?
- Sometimes wish I had more of one or the other cables.
Other Thoughts: I've bought four of these PSUs for various builds - 3 of the 620W ones and 1 of the 1000W ones. All four of them have been ticking along happily.
The biggest "problem" I've found with these PSUs is the choice of cabling at times. I find myself wanting more 4-pin Molex connectors in some builds, while other builds require a ton of SATA connectors. I'd dearly love to be able to buy individual modular cables for these PSUs. As it stands, I've got plenty of spares now that I've used 4 of them in builds, but it was a bit touch-and-go for one of the early ones.
Pros: - Plenty of RAM.
Cons: - A bit slow (relatively,) but that's what you're buying here.
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these kits to max out a server motherboard so I could run a workstation, and later a home virtual server. It's been ticking along nicely for a year and a half.READ FULL REVIEW
