    The CX500 can be put down by most. Ive been using it for almost 4 years and no problems. I ran AMD oc'd and 970 gtx on this thing with no problem. So it works my low power intel and gpu fine

    A good, reliable PSU.

    Almost regret buying this because the 24 pin connector doesn't fully click in the motherboard no matter how much pressure i put on it.

    It handles a 125W CPU and a 190W GPU so I am happy.

    I don't know how to rate a power supply. It's non-modular 80+ Bronze but it does its job. It didn't blow up yet so I guess its ok.
