Other Thoughts: could see a noticeable increase in speed of my system.
as usual, WD doesn't disappoint. another solid product
This review is from: LEPA N Series N500-SA 500W ATX12V Power Supply
Cons: not modular
Other Thoughts: needed a 12 power source so i bought this.
gutted all the wires out and soldered one pair of 10 gauge wires to the pcb.
under full load the supply get warm but never hot and the fan is quiet no matter the speed.
Ability to monitor power in and out and all rails in real time without having to hook up additional hardware
Cons: Plugs are too tight and risk breaking hardware trying to plug in.
Corsair link software opens with errors. very difficult to navigate and setup. does not display all sensors and displays ones that don't exist.
Other Thoughts: the power supply was bought to upgrade a 750W in a system that was having intermittent problems that looked like power issues. This supply allowed me to monitor the power drain in real time as i changed hardware and setting until i discovered what the real problem was with the system.
i would consider this power supply a good computer diagnostic tool because it allows you to solve a variety of other problems without having to buy extra hardware and equipment
while the corsiar link software is really bad it is useable and for my purposes i simple went to the realtime tab and watched everything as i troubleshooted the pc.
the physical hardware and function of the power supply looks good and that is why i gave it 5/5. hopefully down the road they with make a better version of corsair link. until then you still have a solid power supply
