Pros: - Plenty of cables, with one molex on end of each SATA cable
- Optional LED
Cons: - Broken fan on new product
- Terrible customer support
Other Thoughts: I bought the original HCG-750 (non-modular) PSU in early August 2011. it lasted about 3-years, before developing a terrible coil whine. Antec graciously replaced it with the newer HCG-750M model, which was nice. Prior to getting the replacement, i installed a different PSU in my system, so never got around to using the replacement. Fast forward to present day (9/1/16), and I decide to use the still shrink wrapped HCG-750M PSU in a new system. Everything installs just fine in my system, and I tie everything down for a tidy build. However, upon hitting the power-button, the fan is the PSU is rattling like crazy! It is mounted upside down, so there is no cable that might have gotten in to block the fan. It seems like the fan bearings are shot. I think, no problem it should be in warranty. I submit a ticket, but they respond back that since my original invoice for the HCG-750 was 8/11/2011, the five year warranty expired on 8/12/16, or just less than 3-weeks ago. They told me too bad, you are out of luck! Let's get this straight. They give me two bad PSUs, one bad out of the box, and they cannot extend their warranty by 3-weeks?? I have bought thousands of dollars on Antec equipment over the years, but if this is how they want to treat loyal customers, then this is the last purchase from me.
Just to summarize. Two bad PSUs, one of which was DOA. No ability to stretch their warranty by a few weeks to accommodate a loyal customer, and to compensate for their poor quality product (and even poorer customer service).
Pros: Card was quiet and performed great while it worked
Cons: Just stopped working at some point, after removed from SLI. TERRIBLE Customer support! Won't stand behind their warranty!
Other Thoughts: Had two identical Gigabyte GTX 760 Rev. 2 windforce editionscards in SLI, both working great. I ended up splitting them up and putting them in separate machines. Low and behold, a short time afterwards one of them starts to get flaky. The display will come on, then go dark. on subsequent boot, fan spins up, but no display. I remove card, clean connector, and it boots again, but display goes away. It then won't display again. Fans spin, however. I send in for RMA, but Gigabyte claims physical damage, and signs of oxidation. They send a picture of an IC that is damaged. What? I am to blame for one of their components dying?! They deny the warranty and are shipping it back to me.
Don't trust Gigabyte! They don't stand behind their products, and will look for an excuse not to honor their warranty. Shame on you, Gigabyte. You have lost a long time customer.
Pros: Great while it lasted
Cons: Gets hot to the touch, burning smell and rattling fan; Worthless customer service!
Other Thoughts: Just a heads up. ASUS may make great products, but heaven forbid you have any issues with them, as their customer service is bottom of the barrel and just leads down the lane of RMA he**! Never a response email or call-back, long waits on the phone, only to be greeted by incompetent reps or ones who are powerless to do anything, or unable to forward me to a supervisor. This is all over a R9-280X, in which they are unable to get a replacement card for 1-1/2 weeks! Sheesh.
From this point forward, I am unable to recommend ASUS products to anybody. Stick to EVGA/MSI for video cards.
