I didn't even receive that. I installed it into my system, made sure everything was properly set, and plugged it up. Before I could hit the power button, there was a puff of smoke and a strong smell of ozone. Having experienced many blown power supplies, I quickly jerked the cord out and unhooked it.
On the plus side, I got to experience Amazon's excellent customer service. They promptly refunded my money, and I shipped the defective unit back. I have purchased another power supply from Amazon made by the same company, and it is working beautifully so far.
Computer hardware generally relies on the 12V rail in a power supply. If you head over to PC part picker and get a recommendation for the size of power supply to put in your rig, it will show the amount of power needed on the 12V rail. A higher end power supply will display this power rating as part of its name (for example, the corsair RM650 outputs 650 watts on the 12V rail and more on all the other rails).
This power supply, however, is only rated for 192 Watts on the 12V rail (16A at 12V). All of the rails together output 484 W, but the other rails will never need anything close to the other 300W. This means if you try to draw more current on the 12V, the supply will fail. This power supply may have gotten a 4 or 5 star review from me if i had the chance to test it, but I never even plugged it in. My machine will burn this supply out faster than you can say oh s-. Call it what it is and Logisys may have a competitive product on their hands, but as it is I would consider them liars.
First off lets be real, the 480W is not ideal. It specifically says on the PSU 480w MAXX 330w average. This is really a 330w PSU with maximum output of 480w that does not mean you can run it at 480w for long periods of time say more than 20 mins as it will burn up.
This PSU is ideal for replacement in older computers that came with an original 300w or lower psu. Low power HTPC or similar projects.
I've used 4 of these so far and they all work great. 1 in a retro gaming pc ( PII, 3dfx,Renditon combo), 1 in a HTPC with a Pentium G2020 54watt processor with Ceton cable card adapter. 2 i modded to use with an Amiga 1200
DO NOT USE THIS IN A COMPUTER WITH A DISCRETE GRAPHICS CARD THAT REQUIRES EXTERNAL POWER.
-Update June 24th, 2014 (6 Months Later) -- Still working, although i noticed in HW Monitor by CPUID my +12V was around 8.87, which when i searched i found that HW Monitor Pro can be wrong, so i have to double check my bios to see if it really is that low, hopefully its not, but i will still be buying a better one, not only for better quality, but because this one lacks a bottom fan that my case can support, so i might as well get one that takes advantage of that. Let's see if it will live another couple months.
-December 2014 Update-(12 Months Later)-- Still going strong, had a power outage recently and it survived along with everything else in my computer, i did have some corrupted files which led to some system instability but i didn't loose anything since i backup everything religiously. Just made windows really slow and unusable. Other then that its decent and still living, its basically the main exit vent for my pc at the moment and does a very good job at getting the heat out. I haven't checked the voltages in a while but I'm sure they are still in good range. Basically what I'm saying is its been used every day since it arrived in January of 2014. I think its been off for maybe a week for the whole year(i do restart my computer once every 2 days but i keep it on 24/7 because if i need access to it, its gotta be fast and i can't deal with powering on and off. So I've definitely stressed it, also its connected to a XFX Geforce 9600GSO, which requires a 450watt power supply, so its definitely working at its max i would say.Read more ›
