    It seems to be quite impossible to directly overlay eachother as the screw holes wind up overlapping, no matter how far down you move the C-14 connector inside the C-20.

    Definitely a Young Year. They're built a bit better than most cheap half bridge units, but not much better. If recapped, I would trust it with a low end, older system.

    Anodia is quite an unknown brand, but I have only ever seen them used in newer Solytech built power supplies.

    Also, almost all power supplies have optocouplers. Half-bridge units with two...

    Those Y caps are definitely not safety approved. Neither is that NTC Thermistor. And those cheap glass fuses almost always explode when they fail. If this were to ever fail, it would probably shoot...

    I'm not sure exactly how the hierarchy goes, but I believe Powsun is the company that makes power products, and Powergiga is the PC power supply arm.

    You can probe the power supply while it is running. Just don't short the black wires (ground) with any other wire (Yellow 12v, Red 5v, Orange 3.3v, etc...)

    I agree, the caps look like BH and Nicon. The last time I saw that combination of capacitors was in a Keerda Electronics built Logisys.

    The 12E's 5vsb circuit is just a bog standard 2 transistor circuit found in most low end units. There is a 50v, 47uf cap that when it goes bad, it causes the 5vsb to become a 25+vsb. Using a high...

    I believe the PWM/protections chip (those chips do in fact have OPP, whether active or not,) is custom made for sunpro, and as such is named after the design of their safety units.

    Take note that on the 30A rectifier used for the 5vsb, they only used one of the input legs so it can only handle up to 15A.
