As always, EVGA delivers quality products, regardless of 80plus rating. I have used a 650W bronze EVGA and now this 500W white (lowest rating) EVGA, with no issues and the fan runs quiet. No product defects or product damage, just solid construction. Very heavy units, but the fact that I have never even had to use their generous 3 year warranties is far more important to me. I will always recommend EVGA for power supply units.
