Great PSU 12/3/2015 3:03:14 AM

Pros: Bought this 12/15/2013 and its held up this long!
It's not loud due to its large fan

Cons: None

Overall Review: This is a great PSU! I bought it for my living rooms custom media center PC and it has not failed me yet! It's quiet and runs 24/7. I have read the most recent reviews and have not experienced cold boot issues but also usually don't power down my media center too often.

The build includes the following:
AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W AD560KWOHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU)
MSI FM2 AMD (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2KIT4G3D1609DS1S00
A dvd burner I had laying around
3x 1TB Samsung HDD's

DOA 8/7/2015 11:40:35 AM

Pros: It was $37.00 before rebate

Cons: DOA! Tried two different power cables, tried two different computers, even used a power supply testing module - no go.

Overall Review: What a waste of time. 5 Days for shipping, 5 days back, and now waiting for Newegg to ship a new one. Not worth the money!

7/16/2015 7:34:29 PM

Pros: The price was good, and it fired up when i got it, did not go up in smoke, or a ball of flames

Cons: did not last very long and would have to hit my power button on my PC several times before it would come on after about 2 weeks, and now it's dead as a door nail with any normal load on it(will turn on if jumped, and nothing hooked too it), and I bought it in March 2015 and now it's July 2015 of this review

Overall Review: unless your powering a very very low wattage system stay far far away from this low quality junk, and I honestly hate writing bad reviews but this is not the first power supply from this company I've had go bad.

OK but has its issues 7/2/2015 8:04:01 AM

Pros: The price

Cons: As stated by numerous other reviews, sometimes it will not supply power to fans and your computer will not turn on. When this happens power is supplied to case lights and switches. I have to turn the power supply switch off, wait a few mins, then turn it back on, wait for 10 mins, the turn the case power switch on. Idk why this happens but it seems like the power supply needs to "charge" up before it is able to have enough juice to fully supply my computer components.

Overall Review: Since it is cheap, $26 after the rebate, I'll probably just replace it with a better supply if it dies on me.

DOA 6/9/2015 2:18:40 AM

Pros: Occasionally works, and when it does it's fine.

Cons: It's an absolute pain to get this PSU to work.

Overall Review: Why 3 months of waiting before finding out it's DOA? I've only just used this PSU today, and it failed (it was sitting in the box for 3 months prior to first use.)

I'm using the provided power cable.

I've tried using it in two different computers, and it's failed on both.
1. G3258 4.6Ghz 1.38V, GTX 650, 3 fans
2. A10 6800k stock, 2 fans
It's definitely not a watt/amp/volt bottleneck issue.

I've tested using a different power cable that supplies the same input amps and voltage as the provided cable, and it works for a 430W PSU but not this PSU.

I've tested with that 430W PSU on both those computers and it worked perfectly, so it's not an issue with any other part other than this PSU.

What'll happen is I'll turn on the computer, and it'll either boot to BIOS right away or will merely supply power to the USB LED-colored/backlit mouse/keyboard. No fans spinning, just LEDs activated. Simply pressing the power button when power is only supplied to the USB devices does not turn off the computer, and I've needed to hold the button to force it to power off, but that takes several seconds longer than it would on a normal forced shutdown.

The only way I've managed to get it to work is to turn off power to the PSU altogether by flipping the switch, waiting several seconds, flipping the switch again, waiting several more seconds, then rapidly flipping the switch 9-20 times before pushing the power button. Silly, right? However, NOT flipping the switch those copious amounts of time only supplies power to the USBs.
