    This unit is made by Channel Well Technology. Though the availability is pretty limited even in Europe, we can use this opportunity to look at the CWT’s GPA platform.
    It isn't made by CWT - it's manufactured by the same company who makes the Enduro FM1, unknown by name. And just like the Enduro uses a copied ATNG ATM-G, this Elementum uses a copied CWT GPA (licensed or not)

    For cost reasons it has no efficiency certification, but it should cope with 80 PLUS Bronze. Or, being 200-240V input, 80 PLUS 230V EU.
    You still don't get it. If this PSU would do 82%, 85% en 82% on 230V, then it would have 80PLUS 230V EU indeed, but if it would be upgraded to universal input and the efficiency would be the same on 230V it would be lower on 115V and wouldn't pass 80PLUS Bronze, but only 80PLUS standard.

    No some weeks ago he made the same mistake.

    I say finally as I have had this unit for quite some time already (as usual). Upon the first glance, you can’t say anything else other than it looks marvelous. It is 80 PLUS Gold 230V EU certified (as it is only intended for 200-240V input), which is equivalent to 80 PLUS Platinum at 115 V.

    Is there any ultra-cheap PSU (apart of this, if it's of good quality) with a minimal level of security, with all inside ATX Spec, a minimal level of efficiency...? When I say ultra-cheap I mean less than 35 euros. ATM this are the options I have:

    https://www.amazon.es/EVGA-100-W1-04...ords=evga+500w

    https://www.amazon.es/Corsair-CP-902...keywords=vs350

    But I would like to see something cheaper. Do you know any option? Searching PSUs in Amazon is a nightmare. In other stores, the options are:

    Kolink 400W 30€ (I don't know that brand)
    Xilence Redwing 500W Rev 3 33€
    Xilence Performance C 400W 36€*incl. shipment
    Chieftec IArena Serie 350W 36€
    Chieftec IArena GPB-300S 300W 36€

    Do you know any of that PSUs? Or any other ultra-cheap PSU? Maybe I will have to stay with the EVGA / Corsair

    I'm trying to spend the less possible, because it's a 35€ Intel Celeron, not even a Pentium

    I had that doubt myself a couple months ago.

    Found out that you best bet is FSP HHN series.

    Ideal for office systems/lower end with something like GTX 750 ti.

    With 80 Plus Bronze Certification and not that crappy caps these are the best units under 35€ you can get.

    Ontopic:

    I like those guys. Hopefully they can grow and improve their product availabilty, since it really sucks at this moment.

    Interesting enough. This time the unit is practically 100% original design, even the cap choice is mostly the same. But you are right, the transformers point from CWT. I stand corrected.

    it would indeed have no problem achieving 80 PLUS Bronze.

    Not available at a good price in Spain. I will continue with the EVGA 500W.

    Thanks! Sorry for the offtopic!

    SPC is unwilling to disclose their OEMs. You can probably figure out, why...
