Good Power supply - very silent in use
on 25 March 2011
This is a great power supply.
As Amazon did not have these in stock when I needed it urgently, I had to buy it from elsewhere - but I am very happy with this product. I have read lots of reviews of this product elsewhere on the web and they are all very positive about this product.
There are a few points I would like to bring out:
1. The cables are fully modular though the advantage of being fully modular is not clear. The power supply has to supply power to the motherboard - so I do not see the point in making the motherboard power connector modular. I don't see where you would use this power supply and not use the motherboard power connector at all - so the mother board power connector is always used - so what is the point in making it modular - I don't know.
2. The PCI-E power connectors - I have only one graphics card and need only one of these - but due to the way in which these are modularised, I am forced to plug in two of these at the power supply end while I use only one of them at the graphics card.
3. The power supply is sold to you with a beautiful looking bag and another bag for storing the modular connectors. Bearing in mind the fact that nothing is actually free, these two become novelty additions into the price of the product - once you put the power supply into your computer, the beautiful bag would be wasted and the other bag containing the connectors would be stored away somewhere for future possible use of the connectors. The point is the price of the power supply certainly covers the cost of these bags - but these bags are not useful once you have fitted your power supply into your computer - so do we really need these?
