RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-630SS 630W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

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.

Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 - 620W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Bronze Certification and Modular Cables
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Quiet.
- Modular.
- Works.

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.

G.SKILL Ares Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-1333C9Q-32GAO
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

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.
