Initially there was a long delivery time quoted which I accepted, but in true Amazon style a much improved delivery date was provided within a day or two and the unit despatched quickly after that.
On receipt it was well packed being in the original manufacturers sealed box which was packed inside a standard Amazon box padded out with paper.
I knew the unit was not identical in its cabling to the PSU to be replaced, but the stiffness of the cable looms surprised me a little. The relatively small distances between the Molex connectors also caused a little difficulty which was overcome by using extensions to them. The cabling is designed for a more modern PC than that to which it was was fitted so this is not considered unreasonable.
The unit is supplied with fixing screws and cable ties which is very handy given the number of unused looms I now have - again useful in a newer PC than mine.
When fired up the unit worked as advertised; the fact I could barely hear it after the original was a real pleasure. I am happy to say that I believe I made the right choice in selecting a premium unit over a cheaper (as previously fitted from new to my PC) or unbranded item.
No problem running a 6870 +95w cpu
I'm not *that* harsh on these sort of things but if you want silent, or even 'quiet' then I wouldn't go for this. It's was easily audible across the room from behind a TV cabinet, though obviously not once a movie/show had started and sound kicked in.
Soon after the HTPC build I moved it to a m-ITX build in a Cooler Master Elite 120 where it is much more at home. In two years of constant use (it's actually been on most of that time!) it has never once had a single issue at all. It's incredibly reliable and delivers day after day. Noise isn't an issue in this build and it fulfils its purpose brilliantly.
Mine is currently powering an i3 and HD 7950 with ease (plus a few drives etc) and I've not had a single issue with it.
So, don't get this if you want something silent/quiet but do get this if you want a reliable well built bit of kit that works day in day out for years and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Totally recommend this power supply for anybody that intends to build their computer with high quality parts.
It adequately powers an i5-2500k overclocked to 4.4ghz and a Radeon HD6870.
Not much else to say about it except it has plenty of outputs and hasn't faulted me 6 months down the line.
However I installed this Corsair 600W into my old pc, and what a change! I can actually hear myself think, and dont have to crank up the volume on my speakers to hear things. It has a nice solid finish to it, the wires are covered in mesh to give them a good quality feel, and it has all the right connectors. The trouble is, now I can hear my HDD buzzing away due to the Corsair being so quiet, might have to upgrade to an SSD!
Tl;DR It's a great, quiet PSU.
