That one looks nice. I've put that one down on my shortlist of replacements for my replacement 600w Bronze B1, which is a temp replacement for my CX600 noisyfan.

I would have bought a higher spec PSU than the CX600 18 months ago when I upgraded, but budgets at the time.... It's seen me through an FX-4300 and an fx-8320 upgrade 7 weeks ago along with an EVGA 750 GTX card during this time period.

They aren't *that* bad, but not stellar by any means, in reviews they seem a degree better than, say, a Corsair CX600.

I say this as somebody who has just ordered an EVGA 600w Bronze. It's a short term (a few months at most) solution for me until I can afford a Seasonic S12ii or Antec PSU, having spent £350 on upgrades in the last 7 weeks budgets are tight.

I ordered it to replace my CX600 because the fan on it has become very noisy and I can't be hassled finding a replacement, or soldering in a compatible fan, or ghetto rigging a case fan on a system header.

The 600B (600W bronze) comes only in B1, so it's always bad ;)
