I used to have one and never had any problems with it (the cables were annoying, but aren't they all?). I was running 2X HDs (IDE), 1X DVDrom, 1X DVDRW, a 9800pro, and 2X 120mm fans, with my cpu oced to 2.4 GHz. The only reason I switched for the Powerstream I have now is because I wanted the native 24pin for my DFI. I'm currently recommending it to my friend, not just cause I want to sell it to him . I think it would be hard to beat these psus for the price.

i love mine. yes the cables are hard to bend AT FIRST. But once you work them a little the coating becomes more flexible. My computers a little loud right now but i 'm not sure if its the fans that came with my case or the psu.

Think about getting this hard drive cooler. It not only will silence your hard drive so much so that you'll no longer hear it,but it will aslo keep it cooler. Toss on the choice of 7 colored lights,hard drive meter,hard drive temperature meter and it's an awesome deal! Sells for almost $50 bucks on some sites,but check it out here......

Here's a better picture of it,but they're charging $47 here

I have one 500w Green for almost a year and not a problem other then the big M/B cable is a PTA to bend. My P/S sits behind my drives standing up and the cables do get in the way of each other. Routing them to look right is my only *****. I have Been thinking of getting a different P/S just for that resion
