Default Is this a good power supply???

Just what the topic says... I have learned to ask on here now because the Newegg reviews cant be trusted.

No, I don't think it's that good .... go for a branded one.

If you looked at the pics it does say it is

+3.3V = 28A
+5V = 20A
+12V = 34A

Powe wise it plenty. On paper it a decent PSU. The question is how reliable it is. In this it luck of draw. I read a few people have had it die within 6 months. Other people been running for a long time without a problem.

It does have slight fluctrationg of the RAIL. the ones I have the 12V+ line usually was around 11.5. This is within ok limits but I would like it to be a little closer to 12.

I'd say go for it, as long as you aren't overclocking.
