Opinions on Raidmax 635 Modular

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152046

This PSU is full mod, has 80+ bronze rating, and is 635 watt. I was considering getting it for a replacement to my loud and terribly designed OCZ (the gd SATA plugs are installed on the lead backwards, and it only has 3), and it looks good because the wattage is sufficient, and the price is good.

69.99 * .93 =~ 64.99 (7% off)

64.99 * .85 =~ 55.99 (15% off, newegg promo)

55.99 - 20 =~ 35 ($20 mail-in rebate)

Trying to repair this on a budget, and this is really cheap for a 80+B full mod 635w PSU. Anyone heard of or know anything bad about them or Raidmax?

Raidmax is not a very good brand. If you are on a budget and want modular cables I guess you could with the Rosewill Hive 650. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182132&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

Don't buy a Raidmax unless it's a specific model recommended by a good review site, like JonnyGuru.com, HardOCP.com, or HardwareSecrets.com. Raidmax has some models that are OK because they're made by Andyson, but it's not easy to distinguish them because Raidmax PSUs no longer have their actual manufacturer's UL registration number printed on them.
