This supply has a large fan that auto adjusts it's speed so it is quiet under light to moderate load. Under heavy load it can get a bit noisy but no worse then any other 80+ supply I've used. This supply has an on-off switch on the rear side.
My experience with this supply:
Power-up time and voltages were within spec when I tested them. I ran a 12 hour burn-in test when I installed it and the supply passed with no issues. (***Update 2016: I've had this power supply for over two years, I re-ran the 12 hour stress test and the supply passed again with no issues.***)
The big question:
Will this supply work in your computer? The list below should help answer this question.
Form factor: Is your mainboard and case ATX standard compatible?
ATX is the most common standard, but others exist such as like BTX or ITX, so be sure your mainboard and case ATX compatible. This information should be available on product spec sheets or contact your computer manufacturer.
Connectors: Are the connectors you need provided?
Take stock of your components and make sure this supply has a connector for every component. This supply has plenty of connectors so it's unlikely you'll need more then they provide.
Cable lengths: Are the cables above long enough?
If you are using a full size case be sure to check the cable lengths. For instance, if your supply is mounted on the top you may not be able to reach a bottom mounted SSD without a cable extension.
Watts: Can your system run on 500watts of power?
Use a free online power supply calculator to check the power requirements of your system. I prefer the OuterVision Power Supply Calculator but there are many others available. As a general rule you want at least %20 more watts then your system requires.
+12v Amps: Can your video card run on the Amps provided?
If you are using on-board (built into the motherboard) video then this does not apply. But if you have a discrete video card check the +12v rail requirement from the card manufacturer. As a general rule you want at least %20 more Amps then your card requires.
Proprietary system replacement:
If the replacement is for a proprietary system (store bought pre-assembled computer) then first confirm your supply is ATX standard and then replace it with one with equal or larger wattage and amperage. Check the sticker on the side of your current supply and make sure the wattage and each rail of this supply is equal or higher. If in doubt consult with your computer manufacturer.
2003 or earlier power supply replacement:
Modern ATX supplies do not provide a legacy -5v connection. If your computer was made in 2003 or earlier, and still has an ISA bus, it may need this legacy -5v connection. In short, if your current supply has a white wire on the ATX connector then this supply may not work for you. If in doubt consult with your computer manufacturer.
In all cases I strongly recommend testing any power supply before hooking it up to actual hardware. While defective supplies are rare, installing one could destroy any or all of your expensive components. I prefer the Coolmax LCD Power Supply Tester PS-228 (ASIN B002R06PGE) for this task but there are many good ATX power testers on the market.
Overall, it's an excellent supply given the low cost (about $40).
Then why four stars?
The first unit I received had a bad fan and was returned. I'm pretty sure this was a fluke because since then I have installed many more and had no problems with any of them. Every manufacturer makes the occasional lemon so don't let this deter you from buying this supply. In my experience EVGA stands behind their products and honors their warranty so there's no worries here.
I will buy another PSU from EVGA in the future and I do recommend them to friends.
Thought I had found the noise to be coming from the power supply so after much research I determined the EVGA brand to be the best replacement option.
I received this new power supply just a few weeks ago so I cannot give a long term feedback on how well it performs at this time but it seems like a very solid unit with wiring that seems to be heavy duty.
I had only ever replaced a power supply one time in the 30+ years I have owned a computer so once I got the old unit out of the case I laid it on the side of the case and proceeded to replace the connectors one at a time rather than trying to remember all of the connections from memory. Everything went smoothly but after starting the PC back up I could not get my DVD drive to work. Seems that the power cable from the old unit had pulled off when I moved it out of it's bracket. Hooked up the new power supply cable to it and all is well.
The unit is quiet and proving an extra 40W over my previous 460W unit but just as a note to anyone else with fan noise issues - replacing the power supply did not resolve my fan noise issues. Ultimately, after much more trying to narrow where the noise was coming from, I finally found it was a fan on the bottom of my graphics card. I had no idea there was a fan there and there was no indication in the original configuration of the PC. So now I have a partially rebuilt PC that should last me a few more years and this new power supply will help it get those extra years.
I'm currently running this PSU with an MSi B250M Pro-VD motherboard, Intel Pentium G4560, EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti FTW, Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB 2400 MHz, WD Caviar Blue 1TB HDD, Kingston Hyper-X 240GB SSD. I am running my entire system off of one of these 430W PSUs and everything is running perfectly fine. Anyway this Power Supply Unit runs extremely quiet. Sometimes I forget it is even on unless I put my ear up close to my computer case. Now with that being said. I have nothing but positive feedback and good things to say about this product from EVGA. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a solid PSU that won't hurt your wallet.
