Default COUGAR SX700 PSU

This PSU is $100 after MIR, and it comes with COD Black Ops. Seriously considering getting it. Any objections?

They are actually not too bad, check out Johnny Guru's site on them but I don't see why not.

this PSU is good. If you want a PSU upgrade + black ops OEM there is nothing bad with it. But if thegame is not important to you I would go see some other PSU. Also, not in the right section. This belong to off topic or PSU. ( maybe more off topic ).

Thread moved to the PSU section.

Looks decent enough for $100 I suppose. And I guess the game helps reduce that cost even more. Obviously only but it if you need a PSU though, otherwise there's no point really since there's better PSUs to be had.

If you were going to buy blackops anyways it seems like a really solid deal (Makes the PSU only about 50 bucks or so...)

Looks good for ~$100 PSU. Black Ops as a bonus makes it sweeter.

Not exactly the same PSU, but this thread comes up with a cougar PSU search so I thought I'd drop a comment or two in.... ;)

Picked up a 700W PowerX unit ( NCIX.com - Buy Cougar Powerx PX700 700W ATX 24PIN 54A 12V 80PLUS Bronze 120MM Power Supply - PX700 In Canada. ) and wanted to point out that it is a two 12V channel unit w/ 30A per channel, isn't modular like the one originally mentioned, and doesn't appear to be the same quality. I do like the cable layout though.... there's a seperate Molex and Sata cable, as well as an extra long one that has both. No floppy connector hard wired, but there is a molex - floppy adapter included. (strangely enough... the P965 Dark board I'm stress testing with the PSU requires a floppy power connector.... ;) ).

Have to see how it holds up, but it looks fairly decent and came at a reasonable price when it was on sale.
