5 out of 5 eggsGo-To Power Supply for Budget Builds

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: I trust this brand and model; I have used at least three of these.

Frequently on sale.

Really delivers; my last rig maxes out at 450 watts (at the wall). This supply had no trouble supplying that for days (have not tested for longer).

Supply is very cool and quiet at idle.

Sleeved cables are a nice touch at this price point.

Cons: For the OCD amongst you, be aware that that cable ends are catsup and mustard. Black electrical tape solved the problem for me.

Other Thoughts: I never cheap out on the power supply; there is no excuse for that when this one can be had for $40 if you wait for the right sale/promotion.

I always mount upside down; that way the power supply does not add heat to the case. Just don't park your case on carpet.

1 out of 5 eggsThis is the worst product in my system.

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: - Works
- Quiet
- Easy to install
- Provides for everything in my computer

Cons: The plug-in on the actual power source itself is loose. if the cord moves AT ALL it disconnects therefore killing all power to my computer while I'm in the middle of doing things. The things that cause it most often are bumping the computer with my knee (I have a small desk) or just gravity weighing the cord down too much.
It's ridiculous.
I haven't found a way to fix it but since my first one that I put in my computer I've ordered a second for another computer I'm building hoping it wasn't a common problem but it's turned out to have the exact same issue.
If it weren't for this, the product would be super duper but this little tick is one of the biggest, most annoying inconveniences I've ever experienced.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Ever.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing quality for 40$

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Cables are all sleeved
Includes everything you need for you computer
Packaging is really nice

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The CPU connector has 2 different 4 pin connectors. You're CPU might not start if you have the wrong 4 pin cable plugged in. Doesn't matter though if you are using AMD since they use 8 pin.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Budget PSU

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Plenty of power
cool performance
great support

Cons: only 500w
not higher than bronze (hardly call it a con at this price point)

Other Thoughts: Needed a budget PSU, and I literally have no complaints. Was able to perform exactly as I needed and was perfect for the budget build I used it for.

For reference, it was used with:

i5-4460
Z97e-usb3.1 asus mobo
GTX 760 2GB
250GB SSD
1TB HDD

Not a single hiccup running the above.

2 out of 5 eggsIts Ok...Kinda

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Cheap Price

Cons: Worked for a little over a year before it started malfunctioning.Computer randomly shuts down. Although it has not happened to me there are many other cases of this power supply killing peoples motherboards

Other Thoughts: When buying this product theirs a lot of luck involved you might get a DOA, Or one that breaks after or year but if you get lucky enough it might actually turn out to work properly. E.V.G.A is really a hit or miss company when it comes to Power supplies.

5 out of 5 eggsWork great. Great price.

This review is from: EVGA 100-B1-0500-KR 80 PLUS Bronze 500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 Power Supply

Pros: Reliability and good rating for the price.

Cons: The only thing that would make this PSU better is if it had a modular design.

Other Thoughts: This PSU has 2 times what I need for power, according to the PSU calculators that I used. The reason I got it was due to the reviews, the 40 amp 12v rating which would be more than enough for my GPU, and the price. I used it in a new system build and have not had any issues.
