Rated 5 out of 5 by brianthesnail good solid budget power supplies !
Ive used many budget psu,s over the years with some being absolute rubbish and some throw away fireworks ... however C.I.T power supplys are actually not that bad especially when you consider their price range
the 2 models ive used are this one (550w) and the 650w and the latter is still going strong in my spare gaming rig and has been working well for just under 3 years
however I wouldn't recommend this psu for any high end gpu,s such as the GTX770 or HD6970 .. although anything up to the HD7770/r7 260/gtx750/gtx750ti will be fine
the cables are not as long as other psu,s but this can be fixed by using 24pin and 8pin extensions .....
overall the most reliable entry level/budget psu around but be aware its only recommended for budget gaming systems
hope this helps

Rated 2 out of 5 by Spike PSU weak
Keeps cool under load
Feels well built
Fan is not silent!
PSU rails not reading what is rated
PSU power switch failed. Remains ON all the time so cannot isolate without taking out the power lead
I have had this PSU in a relatively cheap Athlon X4 system for 3 years. The 12v rails no longer read 12v, currently 11.96v so the PSU is no longer providing the rated wattage.
