It's decent but there are better ones out there.

It has rather high ripple but it'll work fine.

Its been running on my computer fine for the past year but there is much newer power supplies out there so better to invest on those i think the fan on it is loud but maybe its dust build up inside that is causing the fan to spin louder.

I have one for my rig and sig and I've been using it for past a year I believe. It's a great PSU, but as jdrom said, a review by JonnyGuru revealed that this PSU has high ripples at high loads. I find the fan to be very quiet though.

Also consider the Corsair HX520/HX620.

I had 1 for almost a year then it just died,back it went to local shop and they gave me new 1.
