I wanted a very efficient PSU from a top company for about 100 dollars. This PSU is platinum efficiency and that is likely contributing to the very good numbers I am seeing for power consumption. The system is drawing between 30-50 watts during productivity tasks and I am very happy to see that. My old core 2 duo system never went below 100 watts. I would also say this unit is a premium product because it has a very nice finish, came with a nice set of cables and was very nicely packaged.
Evga 650w P2 is another clear choice. Aesthetic look and build quality, platinum rated, full modular, all for $80.
So far so good, 10 year warranty at $99 this thing was a must buy for future upgrades. I expect it will serve me well for years to come.
Platinum power rating? Hot damn. Great PSU, but the only complaint I have is with the cables.
The CPU power cable has 3 (!) connectors on it: the 8 pin that everybody uses, but strangely enough, this comes with two 4 pin CPU aux power cables. Nobody uses those!
Also, the 24 pin motherboard cable has a giant capacitor right as it comes out of the grommet. Doesn't really allow me to train the cable too well. Oh well.
Not much to say other than it runs flawlessly, never really heats up to the point that the fan even has to spin, and the efficiency makes it worth every penny. Also EVGA is a great company with great customer service so if anything were to happen I'm not sweating at all.
I got this for $66.99 after $20 MIR which I am still waiting to get. Turned it in in April and the first check I never received. They sent another check about two weeks ago and I am still waiting on that. The PSU runs great and is very quiet. Get it when it goes on sale though because they are pricey.
EVGA 650 was enough power since the new 1080 graphics card didn't need that much power. Not doing SLI. Single graphics card is the way to go.
Good, clean power, with great looking cables as well. The 8-pin EPS has another 8 pin EPS attached to it, I find it annoying, couldn't they have done two different cables? I'm also not a big fan of the PCI-E cables, and how they're paired up as well.
Great powersupply.. Platinum and fully modular.
Note - The cables are short and the 8pin barely made it to the top of my mobo even in a mid-size ATX case. If this was a fullsize this would have been a problem for sure. Also the awesome looking individual sleeved cables for this (I wanted white ones) are more expensive than the PSU itself.. :(
Probably overkill for my needs, but the value for this unit is hard to beat. The cables are pretty stiff, which can make cable management a little more difficult- comes with velcro ties to help keep things in place.
