I agree that there is room for improvement, but it's not what I would call a real "train wreck". CWT and Seventeam definitely take the cake for sloppy soldering work IMO. I've seen a bad one from FSP...

I just tore one with fake PPFC down yesterday, except mine had a potentially dangerous problem - there was an uninsulated joint in the wire which was held in place by nothing but the tape in the...

Pop the cover and check the caps. Since that unit uses low quality chinese parts, it's entirely possible that they are the problem (and yes, I have had the same go wrong with a similar TT...

I wouldn't worry about it unless it's getting really hot to touch. It has Japanese caps and everything, so the heat shouldn't be much of a problem.

It doesn't look great (being the older less efficient half bridge design), but it could be much worse. At least your one looks to have fairly beefy heatsinks and enough output filtering caps (even if...

The Antec. Delta generally makes a better PSU than Seasonic.

I'm kind of leaning towards suggesting an Antec, simply because I love Delta (and I only use Delta PSUs in my PCs) and I prefer the multi-rail configuration. However, You can't really go wrong with...

The Aywun is indeed junk. I've load tested the A1-5000. It's a 320W labelled as a 500W. Definitely worse than any of the other options.

As for the VS450 vs TT Smart SE 530, I doubt if there is...

I was gonna say. I wouldn't put either in one of my PCs for longer than 3 years.

You can't get a Seasonic S12II or G series or something like that?

The OCZ ZS 650 never uses Teapos AFAIK. Every one I've seen (both in real life and in reviews) has had all NCC caps. It's definitely a better option than the InWin GreenMe IMO (and the best out of...

The Golden Green may be a decent platform, but the SF ruined it in the HX by using junk Capxon capacitors all over it, so it won't last much longer than 3 years. Then again, your OCZ CoreXstream...

I really would love to see how well some of these units can be cooled with 80mm fans. I've always been of the opinion that straight-through airflow is quieter and more effective than right-angled...

Those two retailers have the Seasonic S12II/M12II 520W and G-550. Both of those would be good options. The SF Golden green would also be good. The CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gold 550W would a decent...

One thing I have found with OST is that when they fail, they often don't bulge or show any visible signs of it. I remember recapping an ASRock P4i65G which had OST. They all looked perfectly fine,...

I would go with the 4670K. Ithe graphics is only very marginally slower, and the CPU is much faster. As soon as you add a GPU, any advantage that the AMD had in terms of graphics performance goes...

That's true, and I realise that Phaedrus now works for CM, but he's not the kind of guy who would endorse over-rating a PSU in any way, nor can I imagine him lying about his test results when most of...

I think too many here are overlooking one important point - the PSU in question is NOT overrated. It's been proven by Phaedrus that it can, in fact, deliver 550W continuously. The one and only...

They all belong in the garbage. They have no protections at all, and will go kaboom if loaded more than 250W, and will all fail after three or four years because of using cheap caps and fans. I've...
