  1. That's right, CoolMax is not a bad choice. It is a freaking terrible choice!

    Corsair's CX PSUs are very cheap. Other affordable options include the XFX Core Edition PSUs.
  2. Coolmax is on the avoid list http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx Post your system specs so we can recommend a PSU.
  3. I Would rather suggest Coolermaster or Corsair 700GS :)

    Cooler Master have a lot of bad PSUs that should be avoided, and a lot of decent PSUs that are usually overpriced.
