ive been providing advice for people here now for 6 months telling them to steer clear of the cooler master brand. antec or corsair builder series is the way to go...why are so many peolple doing, like core i7 builds with this psu??????

because your labeling all there psu's as pants when the majority arnt. yes they have a few turkeys in there lineup but some of there psu's are good value and well made.

whats happening is people are buying the case/psu combo while CM is putting their crap psu in the case bundle. the CM case is a good case admittedly

While most of Cooler Master's cases are quite good, the same cannot be said for their PSUs in general. They do have a couple good product lines in the higher-end 80PLUS Gold/Platinum range, but their budget models (which are the ones bundled with some of their cases) are sub-par at best.

the honest truth is they have both (as do other brands like thermaltake) so your best bet is to see actual reviews rather then tossing an entire brand aside as junk.

their Silent Pro M 600w (enhance OEM) is a solid recommendation for the right price
