    I love berg connectors, because....You can cut the wires and turn those stupid straight 12V molex fans into 7V or 5V, which slows them down a lot but still moves air. I'm sure this voids the warranty...

    They might have ties with HEC though. This Orion unit, which is normally made by HEC, touts that Xiongli fan, and has the E360088 UL number. HEC uses those Young Lin Tech fans....

    I think those are MCZ, but I could be wrong. Poor things. Didn't stand a chance with that failed fan! It's still working because I'm sure those Fujitsu polymers are still cleaning up the ripple...

    In case you didn't notice, I already have this unit and pulled the caps and measured them. They measured ~680µF. I know that the unit failed, obviously. I'm speculating that the lower bulk...

    It was a guess. I've seen much worse looking units do 300W.


    Ohhhhh, really? So you also have one of these units and pulled the two caps and put them on a capacitance meter?

    Not CWT, pretty sure it's YueLin. I think he needs to do more gradual testing instead of going from 300W straight to 450W. I have the first revision of this PSU, and it looks slightly different. I...

    Good PSU for its time, should work okay. While running, check the 12V with a multimeter to make sure it's not bouncing all over the place, some old PSU's don't seem to like the new Haswell systems. ...

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing :( The fan still spins fine so it wasn't from a seized fan.

    Do you think it could have been poor soldering? I know CWT isn't known to have the best soldering in...

    Burnt toroid on Corsair GS700

    This is still under warranty, and I'm not so sure I want to void it yet, but as you can see, the secondary toroid coil is totally burnt, and it looks like the core may have cracked too. It was only...

    I have one of these that I recapped, and it can handle an overclocked Pentium 4 EE 3.73 and overclocked GTX 260 under heavy load. It gets warm, but the 12V seems solid

    Amazing ripple suppression, considering those Teapo caps are over 7 years old and have probably aged quite a bit, even if it didn't get a lot of use. Hipros feedback loops have a hell of a tolerance...

    You're kidding right? Those CapXon's on the 12V rail are as far away from the fan as possible, and they're filtering the 12V, pretty close to that toroid. Assuming the person is going to use the...
