This review is from: Antec TruePower Quattro TPQ-1000 1000W Continuous Power ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply
Pros: I write this review just 2 weeks shy of my PSUs 8th birthday. With 95% up time, and at least 70% of that being under load... that's a heck of a lot of hours on this beast, and it's still kicking booty and taking names.
Cons: They don't sell it anymore.
It's big and I remember needing a shoe horn and a mallet to cram it into place.
Other Thoughts: Antec for life.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great power for the money. Benchmarks with nice numbers. Runs quiet, and cool under load(relatively speaking).
Cons: Nothing really. There is an "Other" which is why is 4/5 for me.
Other Thoughts: On my second one. First one died in the first couple months. EVGA's RMA process was quick and painless though. I was only down for the duration it took to ship.
Other other... those serial number sticks tend to fall of in the case(learned from experience). I had actually stuck mine to my computer desk. Made it nice and easy when it came to returning it.
Pros: Worked great for about a year and a half. Great software from EVGA.
Cons: Started giving me issues after 19months. No overclocking. Well within normal heat tolerances. Clean driver installs(even a clean OS install). This card has never been 'abused', just normal wear and tear. Has been crashing computer semi randomly for the last 9-10 months now.
Complete computer crash forcing a hard reset. Happens both under heavy and light loads, high and low temps(low being around 50c for this card)
Other Thoughts: I've spent the last 9-10 months trying to fix this issue. In this time I've confirmed that the card is most def the issue. This is way too soon for a card to start crapping out. The lifetime warranty is only valid if you register it within a short time after purchase. The card itself was good, until it wasn't. If you want to get this card, make sure to fill out the warranty card.
I'm not alone in this. I've done many searches over the span of almost a year trying to fix this. It's severely tarnished my trust in this company, and will def impact future EVGA purchases.
