Looks like a Solytech built unit with no APFC. I'd be wary of it.

I'm pretty sure that's true - the label is wrong about the rail configuration. Every S12II Bronze re-badge I've seen (from Antec and XFX) has been single rail.

As for the OP's question on...

The thing with newegg reviews is that people usually only write them to complain if the product fails. If everything works, they don't normally write one.

The S12II bronze is an excellent PSU, and...

OK. Now we know that newegg is an option for you, I would suggest one of the following PSUs:

The S12II power supplies are definitely better built as they use entirely Japanese caps, as opposed to Taiwanese parts on the other PSUs. However, since this is an older PC, it may not matter so...

I didn't realise until now just how the PSU mounts in that case. The way you have it now, the PSU is actually fighting the CPU fan (as it draws air towards the motherboard, while your PSU draws air...

The fan sucks air from the case and blows into the PSU, not the other way around. So, if anything, your PSU will actually be cooling your CPU slightly.

You actually need a hot box to get 40*C? I managed 40*C temps on two gutless wonders without even trying last week. :D

It looks to be a decent enough unit, but it's interesting that you only got...

It should be a pretty decent PSU and should have plenty of life left in it. Are you able to confirm the voltage readings with a DMM?

What PSU are you using? I really can't say for if it's that or the board. btw, never ever use the BIOS or any software to read the voltages, as it is never accurate. You need to use a volt-meter.

Fujitsu caps don't exist anymore - Nichicon bought their cap division out. (see http://www.nichicon.co.jp/english/products/fpcap_catalog.html)

For me, fan failures make up maybe 25% of the failed PSUs I see. The other 75% is mostly from failed caps. Again, I am talking mostly about cheaper units here. Neither of those failures are common on...

Given how those Antec Signature PSUs are built, even 20 years would probably not be an issue. By that point, who knows? ATX specs might even change.

Was gonna say that. If you really just want the best, you can't beat a Delta. I think on one OW tested, one of the rails never budged throughout the testing.

But a Seasonic KM3 or SF Leadex...

It probably is decent, but being from CWT in itself doesn't mean much. The most gutless and badly built PSU I've ever seen before (an Okia 420W) was made by CWT.

With MOSPEC rectifiers (and most rectifiers for that matter), if the part number begins with an S (eg. S16C45), it's a Schottky. AFAIK, standard diodes won't work an an SMPS, as their reverse...

I am yet to see a PSU with a fast recovery on the 5V and 3.3V rails. Your VIOS unit uses schottkys, and so did Wolf's Hercules unit. The high voltage drop characteristic makes fast recovery...

It has a 30A Fast Recovery on the 12V and a 20A schottky on the 5v and 3.3v. It's about the first $20 unit I've tested that's not 5V heavy.

EDIT: The controller IC is an SD6109. It does support...
