As a QA Inspector i deal with power supplies and currents everyday so am very pleased to say this power supply is of very high quality for such a cheap price,i would gladly play £50 for this and still consider it a bargain,has a lovely big fan and is nearly silent so gives extra cooling to other components in your case so has an added benefit. This power supply has 4 connectors for sata which is really good as most at this price range usually only has one or two and also has the 6 pin power for a graphics card which many don't include,most graphics card suppliers usually give this as an adaptor but having it on the rail here is the better option,the build quality is top draw and especially on the cable side,no loose crimping on the individual wires and the connectors are extremely solid.
Now for the performance,everything on your computer takes power such as graphics card,memory,cpu,monitor and hard drives etc,so you will always need a power supply that exceeds the demand as power supplies do not produce 100% power so if your system requires 500 watts then buy at least a 600 watts supply,as for this power supply when using your computer at idle speed produced 520 watts minimum and at maximum produced 720 watts which i find absolutely amazing really as only a gold or platinum edition will produce this and cost you around a £100 or more,i gladly recommend this power supply as an electronics professional so give it 5 out of 5. Tested over a 12 hour period in warm condidtions and remained relatively cool,with no power drops so for the average person who loves browsing and everyday use and gamers with a medium to good graphics set up this works very well.
