Works Great!

Hello all. Thanks for giving me your opinions, they were useful. I have had this 400W MegaPower PS for about a month now and it has worked great. No noticeable defects. Runs quietly (well, quieter than my cpu fan anyways). I've been pushing it especially hard to try and work out any potential proble...

Yea, I looked at the Seasonic PSU and actually would have rather had purchased it, but I think the dimensions were too far off to fit my case. So I went with the MegaPower PSU which was only 2mm off on a dimension that had room for an extra 2mm. Plus, the MegaPower one says it is good for 400W. I su...

Thanks for the reply... I went ahead and bought one as well and I too hope it does not ruin any of my parts. I also hope it lasts longer than its 90 day warranty :? .

Thanks for the reply, I guess I had never really thought of the fan being the cause for the difference in depth... :D Could you possibly give me the distance from the back of the PSU (where the cables are) to where the fan begins/ends? There is a notch in my case that is suppose to hold the PSU into...

PLEASE HELP: MegaPower Power Supply?

Anyone have any experience or advice on MegaPower brand power supplies? I have never heard of them, but I found a 400W TFX MegaPower psu offered on ebay that is VERY close to the dimensions I need (I'd take a 300W TFX Sea Sonic over a sketchy MegaPower, but the SS supply doesn't fit the dimensions I...

Lian Li LM-01 Multimedia Platform Comments?

Has any tried out this Lian Li LM-01 multimedia display? I'm curious to know how much (if any) customization is possible with this unit? In other words, is it possible to create custom messages, displays, etc. similar to a Matrix Orbital GX display -- I would just go with a Matrix Orbital GX, but I ...

HELP: HEC TFX psu <--> SS TFX psu: different dimension

The post I reviewed was very helpful and has confirmed the fact that I would like to purchase a 300W Sea Sonic TFX PSU . However, I still have one very major concern that I hope the members of silentpcreview ca...

Nice thread.... I'm looking at upgrading my PSU in my HTPC, but the most power I can get in TFX is 300W. So I am convinced that I can do everything I need to do with 300W. :D

Also, has anyone tried a HEC-300FN-2RX psu? I might just have to find one of those to fit the "TFX" compucase uses.

This is a great post, thanks for the advice. I'd very much like to purchase the Sea Sonic 300W PSU, but I just don't know that it will fit in the slot of my old HEC-270FN-2RX psu... anyone have any problems with dimensions?
