In response to the comment about whining. My top quality Corsair TX750 also whines. It's not really a sign of any problem. The whining is electricity built up in the capacitors.


It does the job.

I purchased this to power my new GPU, A GTX 550 Ti and it works fine but when i turn off the PC i can hear a very faint whining sound from the PSU and when i turn off power to the PSU the noise slowly fades. If you were planning on purchasing this I recommend you spend a little more and go for a TX series PSU from corsair instead as they are built by seasonic which is by far the best PSU company.

Lovely PSU

Even with a bottom mounted PSU all the cables reach and is very easy to work with, very good even if it is not modular.
Cant Fault it for the price!
