Fried Out On Me!

Pros: I loved the modular design and it worked great...for about two weeks. The racing stripe was also kinda cool.

Cons: I had a power outage at my place and so I shut the comp down since I was running on my surge protector. I shut it down and turn off the protector to deal with the breakers and once I turn on the protector, it starts sparking and popping, followed by the horrible ozone smell. Luckily the comp was off when this happened and I don't think my gear was affected but I will soon find out when my CORSAIR PSU gets here as a replacement. I can only pray everything is ok. This is my first time with an Antec PSU and I have to say my last. I had heard some fairly good things about them but this is a joke, I've never had this happen to me before.

Overall Review: You might want to think about another PSU since a frightening amount of ppl have had the same situation as myself with Antec, especially the Quattro series. Consider the risk at least. I'll try to update this to see the final damage report/verdict in case anyone else is in the same situation.
