APEVIA ATX-AS520W-BK 520W ATX Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs 10/24/2013

This review is from: APEVIA ATX-AS520W-BK 520W ATX Power Supply

Pros: This is just an average power supply. Nothing great to report.

Cons: The thing refused to work initially. I had to jump it with a paper clip and then it did not give me any further problems.
The 8-pin connector was too short on my extended ATX-sized chasis. AI had to purchase an additional extension.
Worst is the noise of the fan. I have four other fans on this machine and they are barely audible, but the fan on this is very noisy.

Other Thoughts: If you want a run-of-the-mill power supply this should work. You get what you pay for.

Pros: This card works out of the box in Linux. I used Ubuntu's proprietary driver installer and it worked with no problem. Double-monitors worked without any fuss either.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I am running Ubuntu 13.10 and it has so far done me good.

Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 69W BX80637i53350P Desktop Processor

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: So far nothing I have thrown at this machine has made it stop for a second. Having four cores running at 3.3 Ghz has been really great. I still have not put this thing to any big test, but the everyday use, including random games, has been flawless.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I am running Ubuntu 13.10 on this machine and it is truly running very great. The power is very good for the price.
