Same here. I don't know why people would buy a unit with some fantasy numbers on it that it will never deliver, instead of just getting a quality unit for ~$110. You can get a Seasonic S12G 750W...

Aww, I was hoping it was going to blow up.

Anyway, that was underwhelming. But not unexpectedly so.

I hope XFX can keep up consistency like this throughout the future. I usually recommend XFX units to people along with the more recent Cooler Masters.

I guess I was just counting on Enermax to double check properly, but sometimes it slips up I suppose.

Sad how some of the ol' respected brands slip up, and the QC blunders weren't something I expected from Enermax/CWT.

Last time I tried swapping PSU fan direction, I ended up with a scorching hot computer case. Suffice to say, I never tried that again.... Of course, this was an AOpen HX08 case, which didn't have...

Well, their heyday is long since gone. And their FUD left some legacies that didn't really do the world any great favors. So personally I don't care, but it'd be interesting to see if anyone is...

It's not the worst rendition of the site name I've seen. That honor must go to "jonygrur" (http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4742&highlight=jonygrur).

The R9 290 by itself needs about half the capacity of the PSU. (250ish watts). So you will have power to spare for the remainder of the hardware. As long as you don't stick another 290 in there of...

If those brands are available to you, then by all means, get one of those. Cooler Master V series is currently very good value for money if you can get one of those. They are made by Seasonic.

The 650ti by itself draws a mere 70W or so under normal 3D load. You could run two of them and the PSU wouldn't even flinch. And yeah, the HX520 (and HX620 as well) is single rail. From what I...

Ugh, this isn't something I'd expect from something carrying the "Germany" moniker, lol. That 3.3V rail has more ripple than a wine-o party under the bridge.

Creative "1200W" PSU

This Creative branded PSU popped up in a thread over at a Swedish forum. Looks like some old stuff, with a whopping 75A on the 5V rail.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure...

I thought Logisys was synonymous with bad quality. They take ancient and outdated crap and market it as modern stuff even today.

If you have the M500, I'd look at some less power demanding card in that case. With 408W on the 12V rail, you'll might come up a bit short.
