Hasn't died on me yet, that's a relief. Wished it was modular though, that way Cable managing would be easier.

UGLY cables, there should be a better alternative for the price!

LOUD. CHEAP. UGLY.

Don't bother. It didn't brake but everything about it feels cheep. To the point that I replaced it quickly. Even if your peak power is lower than 400w, this supply will make so much noise it drowns out 8 fans, an old HD and a 390 gpu and sounds like it will die any second or set you house on fire. WHILE IDLE! yup.

also ugly nasty stiff feeling cables. There are many more reviews out there on just how loud this thing is. Its like a joke. Like they used the parts to make this thing from the old noisy vacuum cleaners we all threw away years ago.

Max system power draw is ~100w so this PSU is complete overkill. I was forced to replace the PSU in my old HTPC last year when the fan died in the old one. As this PSU is not that old I decided to use it in this PC and not buy another. This was super cheap after mail in rebate and does the job fine.
