    Double forward, Bronze, probably group regulated. Doesn't look enticing at all.

    I LOVE how Zalman has made a marketing point out of double-forward design, like it was a big deal...

    Looks like a really low end/cheap enhance design, though that's from the 700W version...

    What makes it look like a Enhance to you? There are two typically Enhance things and thats the ground wire and heat sinks and both aren't look like a typically Enhance design to me.

    Well, there are two reasons: one, it's listed on RealhardtechX, That layout looks a lot like a cheaper Enhance design like Sharkoon rush power, minus the typical Enhance heatsinks and rather standard...
    Plus the use of Caps that look like Taicon (between the two heatsinks) and Su'scon (on the secondary heatsink there is one).
    Though it's modified...

    And there is nothing that says that it's not an enhance design...

    The only similarity I see in the Rush Power and this PSU is that there both standard double forward designs with group regulation.
