The Chieftec Smart Series GPS-700A8 power supply has a maximum wattage output of 700W. This should run most PC builds with ease, but might not be enough for power hungry graphics card setups such as SLI or Crossfire combinations. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.
The Chieftec Smart Series GPS-700A8 does not appear to have an 80 Plus certificate, so make sure it is as effective as you need it to be if using it in a build.
The dimensions of the Chieftec Smart Series GPS-700A8 (LxWxH) are 14cm x 15cm x 8.6cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.
The Chieftec Smart Series GPS-700A8 is not modular, meaning that cables are built into the PSU itself and cannot be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can result in difficult cable management and consequently a messy build and poor airflow.
The Chieftec Smart Series GPS-700A8 is designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on would be less noticeable - ideal for those that prefer silent environments.
