    Default Athena Power "600w" SFX "80 Plus Bronze"

    Found this while doing a cursory search through newegg. Checked 80 plus, seems it's not listed. That's a hell of a lot of cable for something going into a tiny case as well. That plain box is quite the looker as well. Thoughts?

    Piece of crap

    I wonder why you're not suspicious that the 'good vendors' don't sell things like this...

    The description is wrong stating it is a quad rail unit while the picture of the label shows dual rails.

    43A combined on the two rails, for 516W.

    The unit is quite deep at over 5" while typical SFX PSUs (including all the FSP and Silverstone 450W units) are just under 4" deep. Good luck fitting it into an SG05/SG06 with the optical drive in place.
