Pros Very quiet and energy efficient. Good quality wiring and connectors.
Cons Would have to question the reliability.
Summary Lasted in service for about 4 months with a system of 3 hard drives. Then a burning smell and dead computer. Even though there is a good warranty, I will not replace it with this particular model.
Pros No problems...until it died. Antec had excellent warranty replacement!
Cons It died for some unknown reason.
Summary I've had this power supply for just a week under 3 years, when it suddenly quit on me. And by quit I mean made three loud bangs accompanied by bright flashes of light and a burning smell. Luckily it was just the power supply that went. Nothing like a computer-imploding moment like that to make me realize I need to back up my photos and files!
I guess it was (un)fortunate that it happened right before the warranty expired. I was surprised because previous power supplies I've used have lasted way longer than 3 years.
However, Antec was really good about replacing it. Through Memofix, a company that handles their warranty replacements, they sent me a brand new one after I returned the busted one. I have a feeling it was the dust. There was about an inch of it in my computer case when i took it apart.
I'd recommend this power supply, though it's probably a good idea to clean out the dust out of the case once in a while to prevent any overheating.
I don't need this one anymore since I got another power supply from another computer, so if anyone wants a BNIB one, check vancouver craigslist!
Summary Outstanding PSU. Cable length is never going to be a problem. I put this in a ATX case and managed to run cables all the way to the opposite corner without needing to run the cables over the mobo.
Pros 1.This PSU is quite nice either on the performance or noise-reduction level. 2.The 650 watts is definitely enough for you to supply every part of your component.
Cons 1.It doesn't come with the power cord that makes a little bit inconvenience for ppl who don't have it. 2.the price for this psu is a little bit higher at this range
Summary Overall,I've tested this little delicated thing for a month, nothing wrong with it.It runs smoothly and quietly.I'm glad to buy it at a special price. Will definitely purchase this brand if necessary.
