BFG Tech ES SERIES 800 Watt PSU quick review

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
If you guys are looking at getting a new psu because your current one is t-ing you off or you want to upgrade to video cards, I think this psu would be a good choice.

Here is a quick review. Well the power supply is by BFG is an 800 watt and has the following connectors.
1x 24pin
1x4/8 cpu
2x 3 sata headers
2x6 pci-e
2x6(8) pci-e
2x3 4 pin molex.

This psu is great because it has 2 6 pin pci express cables and another 2 6 pin pci-e connectors that can also be 8 pin connectors. they have the extra two pins hanging off the connector. The psu also has a really nice chrome, mirror finish and a silent 138mm fan. It's also rated at 86% efficiency.

here are some pics during the installation.


Guru3d also did a review on this and they said

.
This psu retails at $214.99 on newegg but has $85 off. Even better is that there is a $60 MIR. So you can pick up this badboy for $69 bucks. It is certified to run gtx 260s/ 9800gx2s in sli.

I would highly recommend this psu. Pick on up while the rebate is still good!

I bought one a couple weeks ago, and i love it! so much quieter than my old cooler master POS. my only complaints are that the cables are pretty stiff which made cable management in a smaller then normal mid tower a PITA considering it has tons of cables to begin with.

There's a new revision coming out soon that hopefully addresses this PSU's minor faults.

Ya, the psu is great but I don't have the stiff cables problems. The cables are pretty long but I just stuff them area under the dvd drive.
