I like it!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Powercool 750W 80+ Single 12V V2.2 High Efficiency PSU - Black (Accessory)
Very, very quiet PSU. The 300W one I replaced sounded like a Harrier jump jet taking off. I actually have to strain to hear this one at all.
I have two very minor gripes about this unit and they are mainly down to the limitations of the PC I've installed it in.
1. The cables come individually sheathed. This means they take up a lot of space and, after adding a BluRay RW, I can't actually connect the power lead or SATA cable to the original DVD RW in the PC.
2. It does not have a square 4-pin auxiliary motherboard power connector. I've tried jury-rigging one of the 6-pin connectors but it just doesn't work so I've had to buy a molex adaptor to get the CPU fan working.
Other than these 2 problems (and I admit they are as much to do with my PC configuration as the PSU) I would have given it 5 stars.

You commented that this psu "does not have a square 4-pin auxiliary motherboard power connector".
I have fitted several of these psus to family computers and they all had 4 pin auxiliary motherboard connectors. The connectors are listed on the side of the box. The 4 pin power supply to the motherboard is listed as 8(4+4) pin +12v. The 8 pin connector is two 4 pin connectors clipped together. To get the 4 pin motherboard connector, just slide apart the two parts of the 8 pin connector.
Hope this helps.

This did not have a 4-pin auxiliary connector. Please don't accuse me of lying.
I tried using the 8-pin connector and the 6-pin connector but I got a warning that the CPU fan was not being powered.
I eventually bought a 4-pin molex to 4-pin auxialliary cable and now it works.

Sorry, Jim, I thought you might have been mistaken. Wasn't intending to accuse you of anything.
