Cons does NOT come with 3pin male fan to molex connectors....I needed these for all the fans in my case.
Summary Overall decent PSU, no longer-term experience yet. If you don't have enough fan connectors on your motherboard, and you have a lot of fans....buy another PSU or buy some nGear (or others) 3pin to molex adapters......
Pros Good power supply with the 80+Gold rating, helps cut down on the Electric bill. Comes with a neat bag that comes with the cables, zip ties and velcro straps. the twist ties came in handy as well
Cons for the money you can get at least a 80+bronze/silver rated PSU with more output if you want more head room with your upgrade path, other than that its perfect for something like a mild gaming HTPC
Summary For what you get it's good, clean power going through that won't make the magic smoke come out/burn your house down and saving you the headache of replacing damaged parts, Defiantly don't skimp out on the Power supply.
the Bag the cables and straps came in come really handy for storing the unused cables and screws.
Cons -Cables seem thinner than usual might be my imagination -Does not support dual GPU
Summary I have owned this G550 for a month, so far I have no complaints. It runs fairly cool when loaded and even when the fan comes on my video card is usually abundantly louder. This is undeniably great value for someone who wants an energy efficient and silent beast of a power supply. The cables seem thinner than usual but as a result they are very flat and flexible making cable routing easier but I am not sure about it's duribility yet only time will tell. This power supply doesn't support having two high-end GPUs but granted it only has 550W. I don't hold it against Seasonic because I don't really need it nor want it but I had to say something negative. This truly reaches a new gold standard for cost-effective power supplies.
Pros Well built Gold Simi-Modular Not to long Quite
Summary Used this guy in my hackentosh build, fit in a Bitfenix Prodigy with little issue, Has plenty of power for an i7 3770, 4 hardrives + 1 SSD with power to spare for a mid range video card. The power supply has the main connecter attached but everything else is modular witch is fine. You need to use the attached cables in 99% of the builds anyways. This was my fist Sea Sonic PSU and wont be my last.
Cons Atx/cpu cables could be longer Some coil noise
Summary Using this in my htpc, so far seems to be a quality unit, with an almost silent fan. Unfortunately mine seems to have a bit of coil noise but it's very faint and pretty much inaudible over 1 meter away.
Pros Well built, efficient, reputation, very stable voltages
Summary I very much like this PSU. so far it has been great, I like the semi-modular setup (ATX and CPU power are non modular...because you will always need them). Some we reviews claimed the cables seemed cheap, honestly I wouldn't agree, they seem fine and sturdy to me.
