Diablotek VOLTPS475-RF 475W ATX12V Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good PSU for the money 01/07/2015

This review is from: Diablotek VOLTPS475-RF 475W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: Cheap! I bought 2 so i'd have a spare. I was a little worried at first since my last Diablotek PSU lasted less than 6 months and felt as light as an empty coffee can. But this 1 has performed nicely so far. It WAS NOT labeled diablotek so i'm not sure if they just sent the wrong PSU by mistake, But it works good so I'm not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth.It was also a good bit heavier than my 1st Diablotek PSU. And NOT plastered all over with red and black labels like my 1st 1. But I couldn't care less what brand it actually is. It works great, it's quiet and seems to run cool also.

Cons: not the best of brands.But what can you expect at this price point?Anything better than a cheap chinese hand crank 12 volt DC generator is a great buy at the price.

Other Thoughts: Keep 1 on hand for emergencies. Nothing like having a spare PSU when your current unit dies on you at 3AM and there's no stores open to go buy a new 1.

Pros: configuration options up the wazoo!! Best airflow of any case I've owned. I'm running an 8 core Vishera FX black series CPU that's overclocked nearly 25% using only the stock heatsink and fan that came in the box with the processor. My idle temps are in the low 90's Fahrenheit. Under load it only warms up to about 130F. It comes equipped with 3 large, VERY quiet case fans already installed.Room for over a DOZEN hard drives!!!!

Cons: No spot for a full size dvd burner or even a slimline laptop drive, only a slot loader, which is harder to find. (not to mention pricier if you buy your slot load drive new) Managed to find a used slot load multi burner pulled from a mac book on that auction site that starts with an E though, so no biggie.

Other Thoughts: Very cool looking case. Looks like a mini fridge like you'd find in a dorm or hotel room. And as cool as it keeps my 8 core monster CPU it might as well be a fridge.
The manual is next to worthless but do you REALLY need a manual to tell you how to take a case apart or put it back together?? If so, perhaps you should stick to a big box pc from best buy or wally world.

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Runs cool. Good price and speedy shipping from Newegg as always..
The drive is listed as designed for surveillance type applications. As in made for time lapse and other type surveillance DVR equipment. It is VERY small in size and weight. I thought for a moment when I took it out of the box that I had purchased a laptop drive by mistake because it was so svelte. Seems to run cool and quiet. I performed a mass file copy of over 1,500,000 files totaling 898 GB in just under 8 hours with no transfer errors or other mishaps.

Cons: None so far. We will see how reliable and well built it is over time.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this along with a Mediasonic 4bay JBOD enclosure. I'm happy as a clam with the drive AND the enclosure.
