Pros: - Looks great
- Has a backplate
- Not covered with annoying LEDs
Cons: - Uses Micron memory, Zotac still has no bios update.
- Fan closest to GPU slot failed after less than 4 months.
Overall Review: With other manufacture's cards available for around the same price I'm not sure why you'd choose this... I picked it because It looked so good with my ASUS X99 TUFF motherboard.
I am going to RMA my card due to the fan not working and will update my rating based on the RMA process.
Pros: Update: 12/01/2016
I have now ordered 4 of this particular power supply: 3 worked great. 1 Fails under load.
This is the second time I have had a Corsair power supply fail under load. If you purchase this power supply make sure you load test it (borrow an extra GPU from a friend if you need to) Otherwise, you might have it fail when you try to add more hardware at a later date.
Platinum rated, great modular design. Monitoring software
Cons: The monitoring software can be a bit resource intensive and the PSU kinda looks like a George Foreman Grill.
Pros: The PSU looks great and the power monitoring software is neat feature. The PSU also includes a ton of cords.
Cons: Randomly powers off.
In my case the powering off happened when between 600 and 700 watts were being drawn from the wall (according to my Kill-a-watt meter).
Overall Review: If the PSU didn't have the powering off issue it would easily be 4 1/2 *'s
If you are looking for an affordable modular power supply with monitoring I would strongly recommend the Corsair HXi 850w (Item#: N82E16817139150) I have ordered 2 and several friends have ordered as well and all have been flawless. The HXi also has nicer modular cabling.
