Could probably be useful (with a suitable adapter) along with those horrid "power supply testers" to maybe get slightly more accurate results.

The manufacturer's site said "ball type", although it certainly wouldn't be the first time that the specs were wrong on a fan.

Yate Loon: Usually at least decent, and that one is ball bearing.
Muhua: Never heard of it, and can't find any real information.
SuperRed: Usually okay too, and that one is ball bearing.

Delta: One of the best brands, in my opinion, and that's also a ball-bearing fan so it should last quite a long time.

Yep, that's a Prime Ultra Gold 1300W if I'm reading it right. Should be a pretty decent upgrade, even if nobody has reviewed that particular unit yet as far as I can tell.

The one linked to appears to be an inverting design, converting +12V to -5V. Note the yellow and black wires going into the "mystery module", and the white wire coming out.
