Original review: This power supply was bought after the one in my quad-core desktop went out one day. Plugged it in, got everything wired and its been humming along ever since. Works great, no complaints!
My computer's load went from about 500w to about 750w and this thing endured. When I went over its recommended capacity it already had some age on it. I ran my 750w system (based on newegg's calculator) with this power supply for at least a year of gaming. By gaming I mean 3d graphics and my load increased because I put a video card that permitted me to run everything on ultra. So I basically put as much load on this PSU as I possibly could.
Mine died and I took it the case off of it to see if I could tell why. There was a part that was visibly expanded and a clump of dust right next to it. So I suspect that the PSU did not quit from wear but actually from that clump of dust shorting something out.
If you are building a system on a budget with upgrades planned in the future, from my experience, this thing is a great value. It will likely outlast and outperform your best expectations.
I can no longer function working through other computers, and am forced to purchase another Power Supply Unit form a different company. I Will Never Again Purchase a Cooler Master Product. I am so disappointed with this company that I use to have a lot of faith in.
Please contact us via phone to remedy this situation as it's possible we did not have a proper replacement at the time. Have your support ticket and rma number ready.
I look forward to speaking with you.
so I thought that a new coolermaster psu would be a good idea, but when I updated my videocard to an HD7950 I thought a coolermaster RS700 could
power the new system but it didnt..
It worked well for 10 days but then,the hard disks failed to boot the OS an sometimes the fans didnt start.
I have changed to a new XFX PSU using the same motherboard and I dont have any trouble now
Its a pitty this PSU dont have enough power for the new cards, so be very carefully if
you think in buying it for a new system.
Look for XFX/Seasonic PSUs or other coolermaster models.
