Meh. That was massively underwhelming. Did they sit around the table and say "Hey, let's put a PSU out on the market again for gits and shiggles. Never mind if it's good".

Edit: Oh, saw you...

Mmh, still considering the RM550x or 650x for my next build. I realize the factory staff could just have had an off day.

Then it's most likely wrong. As mentioned, use a DMM. But still, the voltages are never 100% stable. When you put a load on a rail, it will always change. For 12V, there is a 5% variation...

I bought the 500W version on a sale earlier this summer, it's used with a test rig I have. It's been fine for the 3 months I've used it, although it's not running very frequently, but it's seen...

They've had off days before. They did a unit for NZXT which didn't review well at all. (I forget the exact model tho). Also, the Antec Truepower Trio failed Jonny's hotbox at the crossload test.

Well, FWIW, my HX750 is CWT and has served me faithfully for a whole 5 years and 8 months. So even if it's the only CWT PSU that I ever owned, I can't say that I'm not impressed with them.

I know. I's funny, because a long time ago I had an OCZ ModXStream 600W, and it whined like there was no tomorrow. So I guess it's a hit and miss no matter what the brand is.

Geez... Reminds of the FUD on that "other forum" where everything but Enermax was crap and would destroy your computer.

A digital multimeter (DMM) is usually the best of the simpler ways to measure voltages. If you can borrow one, or even just buy one (they are dirt cheap), it can tell you stuff with more certainty.

The 500W version should have Teapos in it. At least if you go by the TPU review. It's the 600W one that has Su'scon crapacitors. But it sounds like it's on the fritz anyway.

I'm gonna say it's Delta, because the specs look like a Chieftec PSU I had once and that one was had the "GPS" designation and was made by them.

Edit: Also, the UL number E131881 returns Delta,...

Yeah, it's why I was a bit disappointed there were no internal shots, I wanted to see if any have bulged or leaked. But perhaps it would have been mentioned if that was the case.

How did the CapXons hold up after the 7 year run I wonder? Oh well, at least the PSU actually still kind of works.

Well, although I agree that their lower end products are now questionable (at least looking at what they charge for them) you can't write off their entire PSU lineup. It's not for no reason that...

The CX series really isn't "bugdet" anymore. Way too expensive for that. I can get the equivalent wattage XFX ProSeries XXX modular for a bit of extra pocket change here.

Unless he really wants to go nVidia, instead of the 750Ti, you could take a look at this HD7850 which is also $130 after MIR. It's generally faster in most games over the 750 Ti.
