    If this thing marketed itself as a ~400-430W PSU I suspect the reviews would have been quite different. It seems to hit Bronze until after it passed the 350W mark, then saw a sudden drop at the same...

    You could probably run that on a CX400- oh, wait...

    Bah! Can't find much out on that specific unit at all other than DTek's skimpy PDF. Given the top-end RPM line can't manage 50% of their rated output I wouldn't be surprised if the PHD850 topped out...

    Probably both. SuperFlower seem to have a lot of 230V-only designs, it may be that the PSU above is from an older example of one of those platforms and had to be retrofitted with APFC not because it...

    Me too - thought it had become another victim of the blister pack :p

    Everyone else will too I suspect... AC's support/RMA line is going to be jammed if the unit sells (and I hope not!) :D:p

    Tough one, if it was a C2D it would be a no-brainer but the Phenom1 dualies were pretty heavy on the juice :o All boils down to the prospective unit's 12V capacity in the end (although its regulation...

    You can also get a SFC Amazon 550W for ~€51 in some German etailers, again a modern, real 550W PSU ;) I was really talking about the internal build quality prior to markups :p

    A few peeps had problems when those blew up, as they were a custom mounting despite being vaguely ATX-like. Ergo no replacement PSU, the nice case had to be junked due to the cack PSU! :o
