Unbelievable! 9/27/2015 6:44:21 PM

Pros: Plenty of watts to run a media server with 11 drives, a DVD burner, an Nvidia GTX490, an additional USB 3 card, an additional SATA card, 4 DIMMs, an i7 2600k Proc, and numerous fans.

Reliable: I bought this in 2013 and it just keeps on going. Today, while replacing a hard drive, I noticed a SATA cable stuck in the fan. Judging by the dust, it has been there for quite some time. The danged thing still works with a fan that doesn't spin!

Cons: None

Overall Review: I can't believe it still delivers power with no active cooling!

Without a doubt the nicest PSU I have ever used 8/12/2015 8:11:18 PM

Pros: variable modes of operation, flat cabling, more than adequate amount of cables, quiet

Cons: maybe price, but I am not willing to take off for that, 7 year warranty!.

Overall Review: If you run a 3 card SLI, you'll need another set of cables. 2 PCI-e integral to the wiring bundle of the unit, 2 more PCI-e 6+2 cables in the accessory bag. Not really a con....I don't kow many who run THREE vid cards!

Do not miss the most important fact about this product. It is passive to 600w 7/8/2015 6:38:59 PM

Pros: So here I go. I have a 4770k passively cooled by nofen 95. 2X290x stock cards and fans set to turn on to pump air into those cards. Then I have this thing and some SSDs. I say this to point out my system is silent, fan-less, amazingly quiet thanks to this PSU until my power draw breaks 600 whats. Then it kicks on ans so do all my other fans. Including the 290x s. Silent till I game. It is a dream come true. This card lets you build stupid ideas like I did. Stupid but amazing ideas. To put this in perspective at 600w passive the best passive PSU is 550w for $205. This is better and if you decide to get some GPUs it will still drive them.

Cons: I wanted to have more cables and asked for them. They sent them to me. Thus I had no reason to be mad which wrecked all the righteous fury I was building up.

Overall Review: One thing to be mindful of is the plugs are airplane plugs and durable. This implies they do not bend immediately at the supply. Treat this beast as an inch longer for clearance, 2 if you fiddle with the cords post build. Also the supply must be mounted standard or the passive cooling will not work.

Awesome 4/28/2014 8:00:18 AM

Pros: It looks great and I can't even hear it. Mostly because my CPU fan is so much louder compared to it.

Cons: Where can I buy more cables for the GPU for this thing? Looking for hours!
