This review is from: Antec NeoECO C NEO ECO 520C 520W ATX12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Pros: Works. Silent fan. Lots of connectors, including 2 for graphics cards. Sleeved cables that are more than long enough for my bottom mounted case.
Cons: The SATA connectors are brittle and hard to plugin/remove. I broke the side off of one pulling it out of my HDD. With my old PSU they just slid into place.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as expected. XMP made it easy to set up.
Cons: No AMD memory profile (XMP worked fine on my ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M motherboard).
Other Thoughts: When I use the overclocking functions on my AMD mobo the RAM's speed changes to 1333 and I have to manually change it back. I don't know if that is because there is no AMD memory profile or because the BIOS is bugged (this memory is not on my mobo's "supported" memory list). In any case it's not a big deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the price I paid ($45 + $10 S&H) this was quite a deal. Raidmax customer service is amazing (see other thoughts).
Cons: The rear 120mm fan made clicky sounds (see other thoughts). The front panel is not easy to get off. There is a spot for a PSU filter but it doesn't include one. The fans are Molex only.
Other Thoughts: About the fan; I emailed Raidmax's RMA people and told them the rear 120mm fan was malfunctioning and two days later received a new one. All they wanted was a copy of the invoice, I did not need to send anything to them! As a bonus the new fan also included a motherboard connector as well as Molex.
About the power supply; I used it in another computer, which was my intention from the beginning. I don't know if the cords are too short or not, but the PSU works great in an older computer I had laying about (top mounted).
It seems this product is discontinued, possibly due to the short PSU cable, nonetheless I am still posting this review.
