Pros: Solid power supply. Stable. Quiet fan when its running at a decent speed not so much for low loads, I'll explain in cons.
Cons: Not the best for cosmetics. The casing for the power supply is not sealed very well so light leaks out the seams and is not very cosmetically attractive if you have the ability to see inside you're case. There were a couple of other things that really made me upset about the power supply, as stated earlier the fan and the lights. More on the lights: it randomly cycles through the 4 different options, (blue, white, red, clear) my computer is on my desk right next to the monitor and even as I sit here typing this out, its cycling randomly through the 4 selections, quite annoying when i can see it in my peripheral vision. Also very obnoxious when my case lighting situation is blue and green then there is random red or white. Any hows, on to the fan. On low loads the fan is getting power to cool the PSU but not enough to actually spin, only enough to make a fairly loud whine and an occasional twitch. When the fan is actually spinning its rather quiet.
Other Thoughts: I gave it 2 eggs because I found it else where for about $110, and also its cosmetic defects, if that's what you could call them. I didn't give it one egg, and I was very conflicted about giving it 3 because its an amazingly solid PSU, its just I'm not a fan of the noisy fan on low loads or the lighting situation. Also I NEVER review a product this early but these are just some ridiculously obvious issues and I'm shocked at corsair for not catching them, they're such a good company, whats happening to them?READ FULL REVIEW
