Pros: Very quiet, stylish, high efficiency. Good cable management and mesh wrapping
Cons: Odd trouble has developed. After shutdown, board will not fully power unless power button is cycled WITH THE POWER DISCONNECTED, which causes the PSU to click once softly and once loudly (relays?) 3 seconds apart. After that the machine will post. I do not attribute this problem with certainty to the PSU, but because the clicking noises are within the PSU it is part of my suspicion.
Other Thoughts: The above notwithstanding, this is a great PSU and I think I've said so before.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Don't let the picture fool you - these are not matte orange, they are instead a metallic orange/bronze. I was worried they looked too "gamer" in the pictures but bought on price anyway; happily they are in reality very stylish and professional-looking.
Cons: Cons? None so far. They work properly. RAM basically either works or doesn't ...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazingly impressed by this power supply. That's in line with what I read: Corsair is one of a few companies making great supplies.
The first time I turned this on I had to do a double-take -- the fan was turning but it was whisper quiet. There is a tiny audible hum, but that's it. And the cables and case look high quality and stylish.
Cons: The price. It had dropped due to a sale down near a 430W Bronze non-modular from the same brand, making this one a screaming deal in my mind. I would no doubt have been happy with the cheaper one, but with the Gold supply the computer will run cooler and therefore quieter while saving money. Not a cheap PSU, and you get what you pay for.
Last, apparently a "splittable" 8 pin CPU connector is a feature of many Corsairs, but it would be nice if that were documented on or near the product, to help first-time builders. My motherboard has a 4 pin connector and I spent a little time fretting that I'd bought an incompatible supply.
