Nost reliable 650W Units? - Page 7

I trust you. smile.gif

But every time I've bought something in the past with a Cooler Master or Antec logo, it has broken, failed, poorly made/designed, and/or fallen apart. Please don't be mad with me. frown.gif I know you have to take customer reviews with a truck load of salt (lol), but still if a certain amount of people are complaining on more than one site that a unit is DOA or dies on them enough to remove 1 out of 5 stars or eggs or more, I get worried. frown.gif I just don't want a ticking time bomb in my PC that might fry half the system, then deal with a company that either ignores me or doesn't want to take responsibility.... boy have I dealt with that before. Its not fun.

I totally trust you. You wouldn't have that reputation if you flinging around bad advice. smile.gif

We have a ton of Cooler Master V owners

And i always ask everyone to be honest and tell me if something is wrong

One said his V died on him after a few weeks but that was one and that happens to everyone even Corsair

Another one said his had coil whine one it but he had that fixed with RMA

So all i can tell you is yes there is a chance that if you get a V there could be something wrong with it

Does not mean Cooler Master is bad it could be a monkey in shipping that threw it around or anything

The V series has a lower failure that many other series but its not zero no series or brand is

There is always some risk and if you never take a risk you are never going to buy anything

The V is not crappy enough to kill anything but itself should that extreme rare case happen

Its Seasonic that made it not HEC or Golden Tiger

Thanks, that really puts me at ease. I think I'll get that one. biggrin.gif I learned a lot from this guys. It'll be easier for me when I build a second one I'm planning for December. I'll be more familiar with the new stuff now. Thanks for all your help guys!

The V700 is not made by Cooler Master.......its rebranded by them. The v700 is a Seasonic KM3. A top of the line rugged PS. A gold plus unit that actually hits platinum numbers.

Or the Super Flower Leadex 650/750/850
I still think that the Seasonic units are a tad better built, especially after the few threads by the electrical engineer over at TH's forum who delved into the build components and design. But obviously I wouldn't complain if given either unit. biggrin.gif

A v700 PS or any KM3 based PS will be a 100% SOLID foundation for your computer build. If anything, it will help extend your build's life. The voltage regulation and ripple control is that good. And at $80 shipped right now? Its a complete STEAL/DEAL. Grab it before its too late for the savings.

I'm difficult to convince. biggrin.gif But that's mostly just with cases and PSUs. A bad PSU can wreck your whole system, and I've lived with so many bad cases I just cant settle for anything anymore. I'm already looking for a case for my second build, a gaming/entertainment system.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1446927/cant-find-a-case

I have been looking for months. One of the problems I'm having is New Egg keeps mixing up what look like plastic cases with my search results when I only select metals. Some of them I just can't tell though. I want metal, no more plastic. I love the TJ07 but damn its so pricy and too big for me. I wouldn't use a lot of the space in it.
