Most of the ("classical") Chinese OEMs don't have an R&D department in the traditional sense - they reverse-engineer existing stuff. What stands in for the R&D is the customer feedback that they...

Samxon is CWT's preferred brand - you have to explicitly ask for another when requesting a build from them.

So then, it's "Orion: The 100% Erotik (oh ja!) Toast Choco-Pie TV PSU Platform Database".

I like the sound of that, as mouthful as though it may be.

He never said anything directly, only gave some hints, so it doesn't count.

Yes, and anything over 250W needs to have Active PFC explicitly.
Mind you, that's 250W of actual continuous power, peak rating (< 1 minute) can be ten times as much for all EU regulations care.

Well, judging from this picture (http://pics.computerbase.de/5/0/2/4/4/8.jpg), there are a couple of dead SMDs, most notably a Zener diode. Probably some bias resistors for the primary switchers too....

Hm. Haven't encountered that before, and I did see quite a few 230V PSUs run off a variac at 115V, even off a UPS for the NA market...

Which model, and what was fried? APFC switchers?

Any time someone gathers useful info and presents it all in one place, easy to find and interpret, it can only be a good thing.

And if you respect this rating, using a "230V only" PSU at up to half it's rated output power would be perfectly fine at 115V inputs (i.e. if you have a 500W 230V only, using it at up to 250W is fine...

It's something of a design flaw in PSH and PSHII units - the 5VSB cap is beeing cooked by the two heatsinks, the 5VSB rectifier and the transformer, all the while residing in the fan's airflow...

100 bucks says the 5VSB filter capacitor is gone (the one between primary and secondary heatsinks, next to the 5VSB transformer, 10V/2200uF SamXon GF).

That 3.08V reading is a little suspect, but the 12V and the 5V are excellent. Also, pretty much no PSU is required to perform within specification with exactly zero load on it. And why should it?...
