    Seeing such a nice budget unit makes me wonder why no one uses InWin designs in their retail products, does InWin not license their stuff out?

    In Win often copy FSP designs. Some of their units (like the GreenMe) even use controller ICs which were originally custom designed for FSP.

    Weren't the GreenMe units designed by In Win & built by FSP?

    That wouldn't surprise me, as the rest of their retail / named lines are all from other OEMs besides the newest Commander III units.

    Gabriel (Hardware Secrets) actually asked In Win about this. They say that the GreenMe is built in house. It's also unusual to find Samxon caps in an FSP built unit (they usually go with Teapo and CapXon if you don't want Japanese parts)
