Circle 500 Watts APFC Power Supply Review

So two years back i got this Circle 500 watts APFC PSU for my PC as my Corsair VS450 PSU was having random reboot issues that i had to suffer for 1 and a half year (Oct. 2014-April 2016). I got this PSU in early May, not only the price was great (i bought it for ₹2550) but the build quality was also above par. It's the cheapest 500W PSU in Indian market with AMD Gaming / Crossfire and Nvidia SLI certification.

One of the most satisfying thing i noticed about this PSU while installing it my PC was how slick Motherboard 24-pin ATX connector was. You don't need to put any force, just push it gently and it will go all the way.

It is silent and has a decent 120mm thermal fan which is barely audible even when your PC is running at full load. No overheating issue even when PSU is fully stressed.

There are 5 SATA Power Connectors, 3 Molex, 1 PCIe 6+2 pin, 1 CPU Connector with EPS 12V (8 Pin), 1 Motherboard Connector with 20 + 4 pin and 1 Floppy connector with 4 pins. Should be more than enough for average consumer.

Comes with 3 years of warranty provided officially by Circle so you don't have to worry if it fails or starts malfunctioning although it's unlikely with this unit as it offers tremendous quality, i would be surprised if it fails under 3 years even with heavy usage (14-18hrs per day) and expect it to last at least 5 years with normal usage (6-8hrs per day).

So far for me it's been really good, you can say Indian brands are excellent at providing quality budget products. I hope Indians brands can dominate the market in near future so our economy can grow, we can get rid of unemployment and most importantly poverty. Possibly in future people might realize that extra charge that MNCs take is not worth it, it's not for better quality but actually due to their greed of extra profit margins.
