I bought this as power supplies around 6 months ago when I was getting the bits together to build a new gaming Pc. I wanted a power supply that would be capable of keeping everything really cool, I defiantly picked the right one! My freezer is warmer than this thing, the next time we have a really warm day I know where I'm heading. I've had a lot of fans in the past but this surprisingly was one of the quietest, theirs obviously some vibration but most of this is at start up; once this is out the way I can hardly hear it even when I'm listening out for it. Installation was very quick, this isn't helped by the fact that the manual isn't great, just ... Read the complete review

When i upgraded my PC, i wanted it to be cooler as well as faster, so when replacing the old internal power supply, i got one of these. My god, its like a fridge in there now - that fan is huge and has always been superb. For noise it isn't too bad - it does make a slight rumbling noise on start up and this can create a slight vibration, but once you have got to the log on screen, it slows down and becomes absolutely silent from then on, even if it has been left on for some time. (That's silent when your ear is really close up by the way) Installation was quick and easy, there are a few problems with the manual though, and so this isn't perfect. It ...

I originally bought this to replace the 250 watt power supply in my desktop computer, upon installation I found it to be so much better than the old one. First of all it was much quieter, almost silent which if anything is the best feature of this unit. Also I found the large fan on the underside of this to keep my computer much cooler than it was with the previous power supply. It supports a large amount of IDE, SATA and can power some PCIe graphics cards with the various connectors that come attached. The wiring is all housed in nice black flexible sheaths which helped to keep the inside of my computer tidier than having a load of wires held together by ... Read the complete review

I bought this to run my latest GeForce 8800GT graphics card and at 500W it's got loads of oomph to power lots of things. Let's go through what you actually get: 3x SATA connecters 4x 4-pin Molex connectors 6-pin (12v) PCI-E power connector 4-pin (12v) ATX CPU fan power connector 20/24-pin ATX motherboard connector Floppy connector ...a UK power cord, some screws and the PSU itself. Well it seems to run my graphics card ok but has some boot trouble which could be the problem with the graphics card but when it does boot, the PSU runs the card fine. It seems ok with two hard drives (1 SATA & 1 IDE) and a DVD ... Read the complete review

there are 2 rules regarding power supplies when you're building a computer 1) You should never cheap out on your power supply 2) 500w of good power is better than 700w of poor power OCZ has made a fantastic power supply here and if I saw one for sale i'd get another. 500w is a little on the low side for power users running multiple gpu's and hard drives, but for most users it should be more than enough. Power supplies haven't really changed over the past few years so you're safe buying an older product. The only real drawback with this product is that it's not modular, which is to be expected from a product at this price ... Read the complete review
