SPARKLE Magna R-SPI1000GCM 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice build quality. Cabling is designed well. Connectors are sturdy, cables are braided, and cable management is easy enough. They even included some very nice velcro cable ties and a carrying case for spare cables (not sure why). Fan is quite quiet. Most important part, the power is very stable. Have had some exposure to SPI on the business IT side, had good success. Overall very good value. Plenty of power for substantial OC'ing, 4 HDD's (2 raptors), 6 x 120mm case fans, PCIx SLI, 2.35v ram and a couple of opticals for good measure.

Cons: First one died during a test. I'm now thinking it was actually the tester that is bad. When I bought this, I hedged my bet and bought a tester so as to not put my system at risk. Got a loud pop and that was all she wrote. Not willing to try any more good supplies with tester so not really sure. Replacement was fast and works great. Fan can't be controlled by mobo, but isn't really needed with this unit.

Other Thoughts: New Egg handled the RMA quickly and curtiously. SPI has been a good no frills manufacturer and this product represents that with some actual frills. As always I will most certainly update if any problems occur down the road (I wish everyone would do the same).
