but is athena a good brand?

003 01-24-2006 06:29 PM

No. For a system like that, PC Power and Cooling.

I purchased this to power an Intel P4 3.2 Prescott with Hyperthreading. Wanted the finest power supply money could buy. Thought I was getting it. The thing died after approximately 4 months of not so continuous use. I am not a gamer (60 years old) but I have worked in the communications industry for over 30 years. I know how this stuff works. I have since seen other negative postings on different sites dissing Athenas. In addition I purchased an E-Power 350 to replace this. It is made by the same company in China and without the label, they are virtually identical. Can't tell them apart. It too died...this time after less than a week of use. BEWARE THESE P/S's people.
That was a review I found so find a more well known name one like Antec Enermax and thermaltake.
