Pros: Having received the new PSU I'm happy to say that it's working fine. RMA with Newegg was fast and easy!
Cons: None, now that the unit is functioning properly.
Other Thoughts: Thanks to Newegg for the speedy RMA. The unit had a 3 day turnaround time from when I shipped to when the new unit arrived.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well, considering after I put my friends system together and turned the power on the back of the psu and got a high pitch whine, nothing at the moment.
Cons: I looked around the net and saw that this particular series seems to have issues with high pitch noises, and usually followed by them dying at some point.
This unit didn't even get powered on fully before it started emitting a high pitch squeal. I did however attempt to power it on and then the noise went away. But soon as it powered down the noise came back. This noise was loud enough to be heard across the room.
Other Thoughts: I did manage to get windows installed at least, so I wouldn't have more to do. I'm going to RMA this and hope I get a good one.
I have never even heard a PSU make those kind of noises before and I have an 11 year old antec 380 trupower that is still going good in an older system.
I'm just disappointed because my friend put faith in me and the components I chose one of them let her down.
I'm still wondering why the noise went away. I tried a few fixes people mentioned on some sites. Turning C1 state and all that stuff off in BIOS still didn't do any good.
BTW, system was i7 4770k
MSI z87 g45 mobo
gskil 16GB 1600
gigabyte 770 4GB
I will update this review once I get things working.
Pros: Fast and very good price. The replacement Newegg sent worked as it should.
Cons: Had to RMA the previous one back to Newegg was DOA but Newegg took care of that fast.
Other Thoughts: Thinking of buying 2 more sticks at this price. Just keeps getting cheaper and cheaper... wish it was this cheap when I built my new PC last year.READ FULL REVIEW
