It's doing its job, can't speak on reliability yet as I haven't had it long enough but will post back if there is any problems

Nothing much to say about this PSU, but sometimes, i experienced some system Crashes due to the Peak Wattage being 430W and not continuous Wattage.

I almost feel like I don't fully take advantage of this.

Very quiet and Is supporting my FX-6300, 16gb of 1866 Ram, R7 360 2G, and 250gb SSD, barely. For the price its pretty decent, but I would advise getting something better if you can afford it unless your build is less intensive than ours. I wouldn't advise going any cheaper than this unit as quality very quickly becomes an issue on the lower end supplies.

Just...meh. I got this PSU as a stopgap, and unfortunately the next one was never ordered. It does the job, just about. Cables are stiff and the "black sleeving" is mostly seethrough. Connectors don't fit very well. Voltage regulation is poor and it runs quite hot. A pretty box and well known company doesn't mean a high quality unit.
