A quote from jonny's review:
Quote:
Overall, this is a fantastic power supply. It's efficient, it's quiet, it has active PFC, the rails are very solid and it puts out all the juice the label claims it can put out. And hey... you've got to love the subtle blue glow.

Only one PCIe connector and 30A 12V... wouldn't recommend at least for heavier gaming PC.

First, I'd recommend stepping away from systemax: Read [H] consumer for details.

Second, it comes with a 600w ultra x-finity. That's more than plenty.

The PSU that in that build is better than the Asus.

If you want an upgrade, come see me next week and I'll have an 800W I can give you.
