Coolmax is supposed to cover these supplies with a two-year warranty but I doubt that it covers horrible, irritating noises. We'll see,
I'm going to ask them.
To be fair, the power production is fine, the price can't be beat and some people like those blue disco lights.
UPDATE ++++++++ A couple weeks later
Coolmax replaced the unit in two day's time. Now it's very quiet. It's the least noisy of all the major internal components. Now I can hear the cpu fan, the graphics fan, and the HDs. I think the Coolmax is even quieter, no it is quieter than the HDs.
I might have blamed Coomax for more of the noise problem than I should have. The graphics fan really creates most of that whir and after some more thorough testing, it seems the low machine hum can be at least partially attributed to the cpu fan.
I'm totally happy with the Price Bros or Coolmax, whoever is responsible for making such a quick replacement, The buyer can't go too wrong with this product and its warranty.
Box arrive in good packaging although the PSU box was shrink wrapped, which I am always leary about because it usually means it was refurbished or returned. Contents were complete and no sign of damage from shipping or previous use. Plugged it into current rig to test it as I bough it for a new rig I am building and don't have the mobo yet. Worked perfectly! One thing I did notice that there was a piece of plastic broken on one of the pin guides of the CPU power connector, but this didn't affect anything and powered up just fine. Ran for about 30 minutes before I unplugged it. Will update review when I get it into my new rig and have it running for a decent length of time.
Blue led fan is a nice inclusion and goes with the blue Cooler Master led fans I am putting into the new case.
All-in-all would recommend for budget builds that need a little more power than stock PSUs. Will update review when I get it into my new rig and have it running for a decent length of time.
Installation was very easy. Although it's not modular, I did not have a problem with excessive cords. I just ran the extras to the back of the case and hid it all there. In my smaller HP Pavilion a6720y case, the cable lengths were fine. I then moved it to my Silverstone Tek mid tower case, but some weren't all long enough to snake behind the side panel. The longest reach from the bottom back corner to the top front corner was a stretch (I did snake that one), but it all fit in the end. I did not feel the case was overly cluttered with cables, although the look would have been cleaner if they had been a little longer.
There were plenty of connections for all my devices:
* 20+4 pin x1
* 15 pin SATA x4
* peripheral power x4
* 4 pin FDD x1
* PCIe 6 pin x1
* 4+4 pin x1
* PCIe 6+2 pin x1
700 Watts is plenty of power for my 8-core AMD processor, 2 hard drives, GeForce 9800GT GPU, 4 case fans, 1 optical drive, and Gigabyte motherboard. I love it . . . and that little blue LED that tells me all is good.
my only complaint is that the cords were kinda short , had to stretch it a bit to connect the further parts of my mobo but its all connected and not to big of a deal. but would have prefered a litle extra slack and thats why i took off a star
