    Default Low-budget 500W Roundup @computerbase

    Very good job @Microflop!
    I think you just mixed up the "Wandlung Minor-Rails" row for the Xilence and the Chieftec unit in the chart on page 3.

    Microflop, did you actually update the PWR_OK/hold time test?
    Best, Luca

    The Force certainly wasn't with the Chieftec. It still on sale here in Norway, but I don't think people go for Chieftecs when shopping for a cheap PSU, Corsair CXs are the ones they end up with.

    Rig 1: Core i5 6600K - Asus Z170 Pro Gaming - Corsair Vengeance 16GB PC2666 RAM - MSI GeForce GTX1070 - Samsung EVO 850 500GB SSD + 2TB Seagate SSHD - Corsair RM550x - Fractal Design R5 - Win10 64

    Rig 2: Ryzen 1700X @ 3.9 GHz - Gigabyte X370 Gaming 5 - Corsair LPX 16GB PC3200 RAM - Gigabyte GeForce 1070 - 250GB Samsung EVO 850 SSD - Corsair RM650i - Win10 64
    HTPC: AMD A6-6400k - MSI FM2-A75IA-E53 mITX - 8GB Kingston HyperX 1866MHz - 3.5TB storage - Silver Power 460W passive - CM Elite 120

    Nice job identifying all the components, had to take some time.

    oO :O
    Didn't expect the Aerocool to be THAT bad.

    And well, for the cap choice (exept for the primary and the ltecs): WTF?!

    TL;DR

    Xilence #1
    Aerocool disappointed
    Chieftec and BQ not worth, unless much cheaper than Xilence. Also BQ System Power not as quiet as Pure Power

    Huh. Xilence actually has a solid platform there. Too bad about the build quality... Someone else should maybe pick that one up and choose a better cap loadout, higher quality fan and sleeve all cables, I'd gladly buy that for 60€.

    ATNG is still the king of underrated OEMs though.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    Maybe be quiet for their Pure Power.

    Well, considering they own the Xilence brand now, that'd be both ironic and unsurprising. PSU companies are weird.

    Yes, I did. But it's kinda hacky workaround, because the standard hold up test of the Chroma 8000 only measures the time between AC drop to DC drop. I did additional measurements with my oscilloscope.
