Runs quiet and cool and has enough connectors for my needs (4 SATA or less). The wires are shielded and thick, so they do look "cleaner" than if you have non-shielded wires, but I can see how they could be difficult to work with in a smaller case with little room. Also comes with tie wraps for the wires. I ran pre and post install power consumption tests using a P3 International Kill A Watt meter and the power consumption of these 430W power supplies was considerable less than with the previous power supplies (about 20-30% on average).
The power output (430W) works fine for me on all 4 computers although I run only on-board graphics. The specs of my two highest power consumption PC are:
-- MSI mobo with AMD 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz Quad Core(no OC), 4x2GB (8GB) OCZ Platinum DDR-800 latency of 4-3-3-12, 2x120mm 3-speed fans, 2xWD 300GB Velociraptors in a RAID 0 and a dual layer SATA DVD drive with Lightscribe
-- ASUS mobo with Intel Q9650 3GHz Quad Core(no OC), 4x4GB (16GB) OCZ DDR2-800 latency 5-5-5-18, dual 300GB Velociraptors in RAID 0, 2x80mm fans, and a dual layer SATA DVD with Lightscribe.
Both systems run Win 7 64 Enterprise with power settings on High Performance (needed for my IT testing and VMs) and I use stock CPU fans that come with the respective processor.Read more ›
No need to excess watts, this will hold up fine for most quad core PCs even with modern GPUs.
Do some research, don't overspend!
So far, it's running just fine! I would highly recommend this PSU as it doesn't cost much, has more than enough wattage to power a mid-hi-range graphics card such as the GTX 550 Ti (which uses 116Watts, for your information), and comes from a reputable company.
Specifications are as follows:
+3.3 Volts @ 20Amps = 66 Watts
+5 Volts @ 20Amps = 100 Watts
+12 Volts @ 28Amps = 336 Watts
-12 Volts @ 0.8Amps = 9.6 Watts
+5 Volts Standby @ 3Amps = 15 Watts
Total: 527 Watts (the 430Watts is what they advertise, but this can provide the extra ~100 Watts if needed)
A typical computer uses 150 to 200 Watts maximum (assuming that you don't have any other extra components other than the default included hardware). Even an overclocked system doesn't use more than 250 or 300 Watts maximum, so that leaves you with more than 140Watts for you to add a nice and powerful graphics card, extra harddrives, extra DVD drives, and other components without worrying about overloading the power supply. Unless you are going to use a super-high-power-consuming-uber-ultra-hi-def graphics card like the GTX 590, or you are going to SLI or Crossfire cards, this power supply will be more than enough for you. If you ARE planning on SLI(ing) or Crossfire(ing) cards, you must be crazy to think this PSU will do for you, because it WONT.
Hope this review helps. Also guys, when buying power supplies, remember to NOT buy multi-rail power supplies as they can be a pain in the neck. Even an overload on a single rail will shut down the whole PSU.Read more ›
The only problem I had was largely due to my own ignorance. There are a LOT of cables coming out of the PSU, and I honestly had no idea what to do with most of them. This model of PSU does not have the detachable (modular?) cables that I've seen on some, but they do seem to be pretty well organized.
I was confused by some of the connectors (plugs) being of a composite nature ... you can separate some of the larger plugs into 2 smaller plugs. That utility of this feature was not described very clearly in the manual that comes with this PSU, so if you don't know diddely about what connectors & power ratings the various ports on the various boards or devices in your computer need, then you'll be in for a head-scratching time with this product.
I had to go online to Toms hardware forum and ask for help because I couldn't figure out which cable was supposed to be connected where. Once I got 'edumacated' though, everything worked out fine. New PSU (and new video card) been working like a champ for a couple months now.
---- update December 2012 ----
Okay, it's been more than a year since I bought this PSU and it still works like a champ. No "capacitor whine" whatsoever. The only noise coming out of the box is when I'm knees deep in a high-frame-rate PC game and the fan turns on ... but I don't really know if the fan I'm hearing is the PSU fan or the video card fan, I haven't actually bothered to investigate ;-) too busy blasting aliens!
