    NZXT PSUs are now officially not recommended as of v2 revisions.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    The Hale90 V2 is superb.

    While the PCB is under-populate the performance from the Hale90 V2 1000W is fine.

    We won't know until someone tests one. To dismiss it simply because it's Andyson (someone who has made some good units in the past) is kind of silly.

    In this current market where everyone is striving for low cost Gold and hoping that Platinum becomes mainstream and Titanium becomes a reality, if this thing really is "just Bronze", it better have performance that blows the doors off of everything else.

    Looks like all Japanese capacitors on the secondary side too.

    Does anyone think it is Sirfa?

    To me, I never see the little purple color on secondary coils except in Sirfa/High Power.

    Here is an Andyson with a little bit purple on the secondary coil.


    Also the PCB looks very similar to this one, even with the difference in components.

    Interesting.

    This is High Power HPG-550BR-H14C. I think it's the same platform as Hale82 V2.

    I think you're right, but the similarities are quite interesting. Andyson copying again?
