The 3 reviews I saw aww said it came DOA or started making noises....

"This unit fried two brand new hard drives. As in smoke and fire."
"I'm not sure if I was unlucky or what, but a week after buying, the unit started making a loud clanking noise. Going to have to get it replaced."

Are you sure that it should be 12V?? Did you take mobo droop into consideration?

Anyways.... Sunbeam NUUO is an excellent PSU. Definitely worth the money. I would be keen to give some thought to the reviews on newegg.


However, people on the forum seem to like it. It's strong, trustworthy, good things to expect from a PSU.

This thing is money, for reasons
1. Presleved cables!
2. Modular Design
3. Dual Rails
4. SLi support
5. PRICE!!!
6. Can monitor the PSU temp with a front control pannel, and control the fan speeds of the PSU! (Digital!)

Those are what make this PSU great, oh, did I mention it is stable?

I had the 450w Nuuo in my last rig, and I got the 550w for my new one. Both were/are great! Dual rock solid rails, modular, presleaved calbes, every way you look at it, its onc great PSU! Oh, and is half the cost of all the others that compeet with it!

Awesomely stable, but my 80mm exhaust fan broke after only a couple months of use. and sunbeamtech's rma and help staff is ******ed/useless.

Hey, I really like the sunbeam nuuo. I got it for my bro's rig... runs stable and is very powerful. It also looks a lot better than my seasonic... and at almost half the price I was almost jealous... but then I came to my senses again and realized that my psu is quieter, more efficient, more powerful and just looks good cause I sleeved the cables!

but yeah, it's a good psu... probably the best for under 100
