Pros: Powers stuff (3+ months)
Quiet (haven't tried the red fan button)
Cons: Not 80-plus platinum?
Other Thoughts: Running an AMD Athlon 740, Radeon HD 7850 (slight OC), single 7200 RPM HDD, M/K, basic speakers this thing pulls at max around 220 watts from the wall (tested with a killawatt meter). Idling, I only use around 75 watts average, low end 60 watts high end 85 watts.
Given my idle wattage, it runs outside efficiency range (being under 20%) and I may be wasting money. So maybe I should have bought a smaller power supply. Regardless, it's for a gaming computer that I turn off regularly, so I'll save more money on the 80-plus rating than I'll lose on the idle time (only about 20% of the time it's on).
Pros: Works, no bad sectors
Paired just fine with another brand same clock / timings
Other Thoughts: Been working just fine, no trouble yet. Good stick of RAM, works just fine with other brands.READ FULL REVIEW
