    Many people (myself included) don't like CoolerMaster's PSUs because of their past reputation for being extremely inefficient and overrated, but it mainly depends on which PSU you pick and for what purpose. I was cash-strapped, and EVGA was not an alternative to consider. So I went with this PSU. Non-sleeved or black cables here are a nuisance. Cable length is appropriate only for minitowers. Has a single 6-pin PCI-E connector so I can assume that up to a G4560 + Reference RX480 can be supported, but I wouldn't recommend it. Not the best capacitors inside, but it's too heavy to think it's a generic PSU.

    Just stick to this PSU if you need to do an Office Build, a low-end LAN Party Build, or an Internet Café MMO/MOBA/FPS APU Rig.

    Honestly overkill but loud af. Makes my system loud as a whole.

    This PSU is still alive 5 years later so I guess I can't say anything bad about it. It's not modular but again this was in a budget build.
