Decent power output, good build quality
wouldn't trust it on a high-end system - internal components look awfully sparse compared to other 500w psu's
Great for the budget build I had in mind, but I wouldn't choose it over my silverstone 500w in a gaming machine -- the internal components take approximately 1/2 the room my silverstone does, but put out the same power for 1/2 the price?

This Psu is great for the price, but make sure the rest of the system matches the 'budget' category

Experience: 5 Months


Price (sale at 49.99)
not 80 plus
no active pfc
This is "the" psu i use for all my budget minded builds. Very quiet, lots of power, and its reliable.

you do get what you pay for. no 80 plus, no active pfc. but, its better than paying $200 bucks for psu like i do for my own rigs.

Ill end off with this point. Great psu for this price range. if you want better quality, you gotta pay more money. but for 50 bucks, this is unbeatable. never had a problem yet, and i've used 4 of them.

Experience: 2 Months


Price runs quiet,120mm cool,
wouldnt use it for SLI
For the average to medium gaming system this PSU is great ive used them many times. They are fairly quiet which i like and always seem to power my video cards and fans. Its not something id recommend for sli and crossfire but for everyone else out there its a great PSu and I even prefer these over the Antec ones in the 500 watt range.For the money ive had better luck with these coolermaster PSU's then the 500 watt antec and Seasonic but thats just me.As builders we go for what we dont have troubles with in our systems and stick with them.

Best value, high quality
Low power
I have build a few systems with this power supply. It only have one pci-e six pin power supply. Which is good for most mAtx mother board. With only one PCI express slot. Best for budget build PC!. Don't use it if you plan on SLI or CrossFire.. It won't be able to take the load.

Experience: 2 Days


Good enoughh for budget build
loud fan. removed it within a day
I picked this up from ncix ebay store as well as a silverstone 400watt. I tested each when they arrived as the coolermaster was an open box so did not pay full price. I've used fortrons,seasonic,silverstones (i prefer) in many builds. I tried it in a new build, but removed it the next day, fan too loud. I mean for the average build I am sure this is a fine supply to use but noise matters to me. I used the silverstone (5th one I have bought ) and am always happy.

Price/Quality is good.
You can't beat the price for a 500W PSU like this. It works good for my system: Q6600, 8GB mem, HD4850, 500GB+320GB HDD, and a DVD burner.

Experience: 4 Months


Nice weight. Nice look. All the right connections. The fan is big which is better for sound level.
Can get too hot and burn out if you are running too good of a video card.
I would buy it again for an average computer, but not for a computer designed to be used for gaming as it will get too hot and die.

Experience: 2 Days


pretty quiet
2 12v rails
great power supply runs everything i need it to and is not loud at all i would recommend it for any budget build or even mid range builds

Experience: 14 Days


Works great, not too loud, plenty of power connectors. Perfect for a single-GPU system, easily supports my 8800 GT.
Not silent.
I picked this up to power an e5200 core2duo system, with 2gb ddr2 800 and an XFX 8800 GT 512MB video card. A bit loud, but nothing unbearable. Cannot hear it over movies when using it for HD playback, noise did not change for games, either. Also running an IDE 250g HDD and a SATA DVD-R. Great deal, and no complaints thus far! Good product.

Experience: 20 Days


500W pour le prix !
Légèrement audible.
Bon power supply pour un ordinateur de bureautique ou gaming léger. Le prix est comparable à des 380 à 450W.
Malheureusement, il n'est pas innaudible, mais c'est très raisonnable.
