Coolmax 400W ActivePFC EPS Power Supply


A couple weeks ago we had the opportunity to look at the Coolmax 480W fan less power supply. This supply was good for those who had a case fan near by to maintain air flow, but really heated up for those with no fans such as a liquid cooled system.

Quiet operation ; Stylish design ; 24pin ATX connector ; Powerful 400W ; Power correction features ; Very affordable

I would have liked to have seen a pattern of some kind with the sleeving

Coolmax definitely has a great power supply on their hands with the 400W ActivePFC EPS power supply. It has excellent performance and is very affordable, not to mention all it's cool features!

very good, Cool And quiet


Used it about 3weeks now; no issues. I probably would not have bought if I had just read all the negative reviews here 1st, but it turned out to be a great power supply. Note: Description is WRONG, there isn't a 3speed fan switch, but all the other...

Installation was easy and it's still purring


This was easy to install. Anyone can do it. If you can work a screwdriver and play connect the dots with the cable adapters, you are set. The price, compared to the manufacture of the computer itself, was a great deal cheaper. Installation time from...

6 years trouble free!


I've been using this unit since 12/04 with no problems whatsoever. Once, I bought a new graphics card and was having issues, so I assumed the p/s was not up to the task. Wrong. The problem was the motherboard - replaced that and this thing has been...

Nice looking, quiet, and steady as can be

Some of the connectors feel a little cheap

The only reason I bought this PSU to begin with was because of the mail-in rebate. I would not buy it again.

Low price, looks nice, and it powers the computer

Not silent. VERY cheaply built - metal casing and connectors feel flimsy. Too many Molex connectors and not enough SATA connectors. One of the Molex connectors wouldn't fit on the optical drive, but I tried another one and it fit fine. One of the SATA...
