Doesn't look that promising. However, for the price (which is also a little scarily low) I would go for it, and if it blow, replace it later on with a really good one.

ya, i dun think it will, lol i went to ocforums, and put my settings to the same as this othe dude, lol for 2.5 ghz, ya my comp wouldnt start back up, so i had to turn the psu switch off then back on, and start comp, went to bios, and switched back to non oc fast as i could but most the psu's that come with the cases on newegg i think are good, least raidmax is reliable

Well, love this PSU then! Nothing touches this PSU in Price range or Cooling. I am getting this one. Gian's is nice, but I am liking this far more!

I mean! You can change to three different colors, green, red, and blue! WOW! And it is 550Watt with great Rails etc. Plus, 120mm fan!! OMG... This is just like the Demon PSU that Gian has, except with color change (and higher price...)
