    Default FSP Hexa HE-400 400W

    Most of the time, we test the big guns... the power supplies everyone wants. Nearly all of these units cost a fair bit of cash to get one, though. What happens when you only have a couple of twenty dollar bills in your pocket left, and you absolutely need a power supply today? FSP wants to help you out, there. Traditionally, FSP has always been the leader of the "cheap but still good" market. Today, I'm looking at a budget unit of theirs targeted at markets in the eastern hemisphere, the Hexa 400W. This is a 230V only unit not available in North America. Let's see if FSP's budget units from overseas stand up to our test methods.

    Meh. Corsair VS450 for similar price is clearly superior option, having sleeved cables and 2 PCI-E connectors.

    Barely see 220V only units here

    The model sold in Chinese market (in the same case, very close platform but with polymer caps) has better ripple suppression.

    It does have some competition in that price bracket (€40 here in Sweden). FSP500-60APN, Chieftech Smart GPS500A8, Corsair CX430 and the Antec VP450 are all in that range (give or take one or two €).

    My major complaint is actually the rail distibution FSP tend to have. Otherwise I rather like these sort of units, mainly because I can afford them. ^^

    Hi guys, im new here, nice to meet u. Very good review as always. I want to suggest u 2 very good low-end psu's for review. First one is this:

    http://www.njoy.ro/PSU/450rge#overview

    Njoy is a new romanian company and they offers a very good and cheap psu's. This one shares the same platform as CM GX Lite series and his price is only 38.90 EUR. For this price it offers a APFC, Sinlge 12V rail (34A) and 3 years warranty. The another one is CM B500:

    http://www.coolermaster.com/product/...ries/b500.html

    This one is priced 40.00 EUR in my country (Bulgaria). If u can bring one of these 2 psu's and make a review, would be great. Sorry for my english, I know that its not so good...

    zahtpax, if you buy that power supply and send it to US (it would only cost you about 30-40$ to ship it), I'm sure they'll be happy to review it.

    Otherwise, there are some mini reviews and pictures of the insides on the PC Garage forum (mygarage.ro) under the "Teste si review-uri" (tests and reviews) section of one of those nJoy power supplies.

    At least where i am the 550W version costs 69SGD (20 less than S12II-520W)
    and we don't have the Corsair VS... But i'm sure that will be like 89 here as well
    For 69SGD what else can i get? CM Extreme. Yeah. Shithouse power supply.

    How much does this PSU cost?
    30$, 40$, 50$, 60$??

    I see this particular PSU for about 35€ in Germany, so do you really expect japanese caps in a 400W unit that cheap?! Why??

    And why does anyone expect japanese caps in a 35€ PSU?
    And where's the sense in that, when the fan is most likely the first thing to fail?
