Functions if you're in require of a cheap power provide that you don't strategy on utilizing more than a year. Bought 2 of these, one particular made it a year and a half the other just died at virtually two years. Appears like I'll have to replace it with a brand that has a better reputation and a warranty to stand behind their product. Read the evaluations!!! It sounds like I'm lucky mine created it virtually 2 years when other folks are dead after a year (i.e. the length of the warranty). May possibly be greatest to steer clear of unless you need to have a low cost energy provide.

I purchased this power supply in late 2004 and it is nevertheless delivering stable power. UV reactive green heat shrink wrap is nice if you don't really feel like placing your own on. This isn't a higher finish energy supply, but for what it's worth it does properly. A bit loud. (There is a fan speeder controller on it though!)

Good, reputable, and nice to look at. External-Speed-Manage/nice, also. Plenty of energy for such a spending budget-build, in late ག. Audible indicator snuffed immediately after about 6-months. About one more 3-6-months later, two of the 3 led-fan's flickered occasionally, until they sooner or later burned-out. Followed by an eventual partial energy failure. Which was tricky to diagnose. As time went by it seemed to just be practically nothing much more than standard LED burn-out. The machine nonetheless ran, but started shutting it's self off right after brief-periods, and eventually wouldn't power-up at all. When disconnected to every thing else tests proved the PSU was nonetheless worthy. A New Motherboard was brought in. Nevertheless practically nothing. "Just the Switch?" Nope! Almost everything powers-up w/adjacent machine. In fact, the suspected, 'bad-switch', even powered-up anything, independantly of either PSU. New PSU coming quickly. In all, this PSU only lived up to it's anticipated possible for about a year, and-a-half. That's not excellent, my close friends. Even though, several hypothisis have been verbalized. i.e. Host Power un-balances, top to potential surges, and/or shortages... What good's a grounded surge-protector w/such nuisances abound? ,..... thing nevertheless powers-up, independantly/just can't give power for anything else.

Old Version Had Falts? Could have fooled me. I've had one of these running for about 4 Years now and still sturdy as ever. My system is on just about 24ǝ also. This is simply the finest Energy Provide for the Energy to Cost variety. It's appears true nice as well. Really hard to believe any of the poor reviews written, I must of got true Lucky and got a Gem. Super Energy Provide, get 1! or Two.... Can't assume of any, except to upgrade the style and add a PCIE connector for the existing instances. The 4 year one particular is not the only 1 either I've carried out builds for Family members members utilizing Apevia's 500 watt Turbo Hyperlink Power provide and they are two to 4 years and going robust also. That is a nice supply for carrying out budget builds. Thank You Apevia!

Nice solid aluminum case with nice LED fans. Speed handle is extremely good also. Sufficient plugs for most applications. 3 fans make for excellent cooling, much better than most! Apevia opt for a poor brand of capacitors to use throughout this energy supply. Planned obsolence? I feel they knew how extended it would final so you'll have to get an additional one particular after the caps in this die! I've owned 3 of these due to the fact they have been a great deal at the time. Only a single has survived. But it's been totally recapped with new higher high quality capacitors. The aluminum case and fans are nevertheless undertaking well in all the units. Do frequent blasting with can-O-air to maintain dust and lint from building up inside.

It appears cool, and when it works it functions properly. I have gone by means of two of these energy supplies, but after the one particular year warranty is up, it dies. I'm not going to order a third.

Cheap at the time for a higher wattage. Adjustable fan (but shouldn't this be automatic) Died on me immediately after 39 months. I powered on my laptop and believed to myself "Smoke doesn't generally come out of the back of my computer system, does it?". Then I realized it in fact is not normal, and I am temporarily w/o a personal computer.Can be quite loud at high fan speeds.

ROCK STEADY energy @ rated current. Running 1 Radeon HD2900XT (and playing Crysis) with no troubles. Incredibly quiet, and the blue LEDs appear quite cool with the neon green cable casing. Doesn't come covered in stickers like other PSUs. No PCI-E. Had to obtain adapters when I upgraded the video card. Don't try to place this issue in a minitower or a transportable LAN rig, due to the fact it is heavy, and it is Big. Lots of bang for the buck, although, in present and stability.

Steady, Strong, Extremely nice hunting. Heavy duty. Weighs ALOT much more than my old cr*ppy 400W generic PSU that felt like it weighed 4oz. Moves ALOT of air and keeps my entire system cooler. Sleeving is actually nice. SATA connectors had been Really valuable. Adjustment knob. I locate this knob to be pointless only because some folks are booty retentive when it comes to noise, so the initially factor they do is turn down the speed/knob, then wonder why the PSU burns out. Retain THIS Issue AT THE HIGHEST SETTING! IT'S NOT THAT LOUD! It's also not 1 major 12v rail, it's 2 12v rails. 1 is 16 amps and the second is 18 amps. My old PSU was failing and kept causing my method to crash, Particularly since I just installed a new energy hungry 7800GS. My old voltages were three.1v , four.2v and 11.03v. This amazing new PSU has my voltages at a steady three.3v, five.08v, and 12.13v. All my pc fans spin faster due to the correct voltage now. Hold THE FAN SPEED ON High FOR LONGEST LIFE! Manufacturer Response:LOL! Booty retentive? That is the funniest factor I've heard this year! support@apevia.com

Lots of fans, really fairly, external fan manage. Loud beeps take place each time you start it up. Died following two years of use. Admittedly I was operating a mildely overclocked AMD X2 3800 (at two.four GHz), 2 GT6600 in SLI mode, two Gbytes of RAM and three tough drives, plus a DVD burner. It was almost certainly at the hairy edge for this supply. However I expect my components to last a minimum of 3 years and preferrably 4 or 5. This failed that test therefore I give it an average rating.

It provided power for a couple of years. It died following a couple of years. I'm not a computer wiz, but I built a Computer a couple years ago with this power provide. It has a fan speed manage know, which I assume kinda sucks, and apparently I ought to have kept it cranked complete blast. Even with the fan at less than 50% speed, it was louder than I cared for. Crank it up over 50%, and it was extremely loud IMHO. I expected far more time out of a computer system power supply...specifically a ็ a single. Fortunately I had a Thermaltake TR2 430W power provide on the shelf awaiting my next personal computer build, so I applied it to replace the Apevia Apieceof. The Thermaltake is WAY quiter, doesn't have a stupid fan speed handle knob, and only price ึ...or ว immediately after a ฟ mail-in rebate. Hopefully it will last!

Functioned nicely as long as it was operating. Died following one and half years, somewhat noisy. Died immediately after one and half years. I would not expect this to die so quickly. I dont do heavy gaming or video editing or something like that. Some gaming, but not hardcore. I will be calling APEVIA to complain about it - not sure what they will do about it.
