Pros Great modular design with easy and clear clips
Cons either a faulty fan controller or a mechanical rub
Summary Fan is extremely loud, OCZ says it's a faulty fan controller, but when I press on different parts of the housing, I can make the noise louder or quieter, so it may be a mechanical rub. After the 60Gb Vertex disaster, and some prior bad history with memory compatibility, OCZ is now on my no-buy list. That said, their tech/RMA support was excellent in this matter, and saved this product from a 1-Star. RMAing drive to NCIX and getting a PCP&C Power Supply instead.
Summary I was fortunate enough to buy this power supply while it was on sale Although I have went through some reviews about this power supply, I don't see what the problem is and it's running perfectly fine
Summary Very quiet and easy to insatll. Fully modular 80+, for under 100$. The only issue was the length of the CPU power cable, in a HAF 922 case trying to keep the wires hidden behind to board is a tight fit.
With three HDD, one floppy and 2 optical, and a mass of coolong fans, plenty of spare plugs to upgrade with.
Cons Noisy fan The metal housing was damaged on mine
Summary First thing, this power supply seems to work properly. It can handle my two GeForce GTX 560 Ti pretty well. No crash, nothing wrong. It would probably have been easy to install if the metal housing wasn't
What annoys me is that when the video cards start drawing current, this thing become noisy! The fans goes to max speed and stays at max speed for a looooong loooong time even after the game was closed. Sadly, even with my headphones on, I can still hear the fan.
I bought it to replace a PC Power & Cooling PSU that started squealing but it wasn't a good move. At least I wouldn't hear the squealing sound with the headphones on.
Also, this thing is a little damaged on the metal case, it is a little bent on a corner, as if someone dropped it. The inside looked OK and there was no clunking sound, so I suppose it's only something that went bad when making the metal housing.
