Decent Replacement PSU

Pros: Plenty of connections for expansion.
Runs fairly cool.

Cons: What happened to having one strand of power cables a little shorter and the other strand a bit longer (for further down/up the case)?

Other Thoughts: Works great, was having a random restart problem on a Dell system that i pretty much rebuilt (P4 D 925, 2gb Corsair XMS2, Maxtor 60gb SATA, 2 DVD burners, 7600GT video card) only thing left stock in that case is the case itself and hard drive :P

The cables are a bit long for this case as it's a midtower. No complaints from me. Extra is better than not enough.

works great, no frills

Pros: I have many of these in Core i5 workstations and one in a 6-core i7 workstation. I have never had any problems with them at all. Great reliability for the cost.

Cons: Only that it's not modular, but that's really not a big deal. The cases I have are large enough to allow for the extra cabling.

Might be Good but not in 700c

Pros: It had all the connections I need and it met the power requirements I was looking for considering I was previously using a Cooler Master 460W Extreme. Also it's 80 Plus Certified and Active PFC

Cons: None, but it didn't seem to help the HPPAV 700c I put it in as a replacement for the Cooler Master 460W Extreme. Not only did it not help but I smell wires burning after I put it in and turned the computer on. However, it did POST to the HP screen, but that's as far as it got and I checked the wires and couldn't figure out what I smell burning or melting whatever you want to call it.

Other Thoughts: HP Pavilion 700c Specs

2nd time the charm???

Pros: 2nd P/S seems to be working as advertised...first one was DOA

Cons: as stated the first came DOA, 2 eggs for the RMA hassle, so for the replacement is working as expected.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this one last as long most of the Antec P/S I have had in the past...time willl tell.
