    There are indeed two a Solytech, which isn't good and a FSP which also isn't good and the FSP isn't a Blue Storm. Blue Storm is better then the platform Cooler Master used.

    Yes, that is exactly FSP THN-P platform aka Blue Storm. Just not sure if the PFC coil is there and Gabe removed it, or they did not put it in at all.

    I looked at the Bluestorm II, it is indeed the same as the first Bluestorm. In the USA PFC isn't or wasn't necessary back in the day, that's why it isn't there. Still nothing you should use nowadays in a modern PC.
