Not as good as I thought
Cons: My computer freeze if I shut down my computer and try to open it again, every time. When I put my computer in sleep mode, it will always wake up no matter how many times in a row I try to put it to sleep.OK sometimes i'm lucky. My computer freeze after each windows update because it needs to restart.
Overall Review: I bought this psu because i bought a new computer and my 1000W Corsair psu followed in my new computer. Everything was fine until it wasn't. Half the time my old computer would not boot, after a couple of try and fail it goes to windows repair mode. All I do is ask to restart and everything is fine. Now it's 100% of the time when i want to boot after I shut it down so i have to put it in sleep every time. I bought 3 of these SMART psu (500W-600W-700W), 2 out of 3 have these issue (got lucky with the 500W i guess). It would cost too much to send back at my expense in the US so i keep them with the trouble they give me. Because they work i can't give 1 star but i would not go more then 3. Very dissapointed. Buy a more expensive one, TT does good things but i can't recommend the SMART series after what I've been through.
Great choice for 1440p
Pros: - Can run AC Odyssey in 1440p at Ultra setting, no freeze like my old 1070 in ship battles - No audible sound even with my open tower next to me - Low heat even when gaming at Ultra settings (the back plate is just a little hot compared with my 1070) - Great price for the performance (and I sold my old one so really low cost for upgrade) - White version looks great with my white tower - 4 years warranty + 2 free games
Cons: - None so far since I just got it today
Overall Review: I was looking to play in 1440p with my 27" monitor so I replaced my ASUS Strix 1070 with this one and I have no regrets so far. I still play with my old rig from several years: I5 4670k (never overclocked) 16gb ram Adata SSD *** I would have gone with ASUS Strix Super but i couldn't find a card*** I get all my gear from newegg and I'll still buy from them anytime I need something for my pc.
