    Nice. Again, the Andyson's platform is painfully similar to Enhance's one is MasterWatt Lites which is in turn similar to CWT'S GPM. (Except the obvious difference of DC-DC).

    Great review. I wanted to see this, I have so much interest on these PSUs.

    I'm not a huge fan of Andyson
    but seems that EVGA pressed them enough to manufacture a decent unit. However, I prefer the Pure Power 10. I see the PP10 awesome for low-budget needs, it's well priced in Spain, it has clearly better protection circuits and it's silent at real world loads. It's also more efficient. I see the winner and I will keep recommending the BQ... Pure power 10

    As for the BQ from EVGA, I think I will not recommend it unless it has no better alternatives.

    Ah... I forgot, the Be Quiet has only 3 years warranty. I don't like that, but I'll pass...

    The only issue I see with pure power 10 is its 3 year warranty, should be 5 and would be unbeatable. Still very good, here nothing comes close to it for 56€(400w).

    Thats a good value, even for 3Y warranty.

    I disagree, I see a lot of differences, this is just how a good performing but not expensive double forward design looks like. Also with this picture the Enhance MasterWatt Lite does have "a lot" of differences with CWT GPM.

    I like Andyson, they always have great designs for low prices. Most shortcomings are small and easy fixable if of course you have someone working for you who does knows what he sells, which isn't the case with EVGA sadly.

    I was talking to one of the Andyson guys a couple weeks ago. Thanks to EVGA, they're able to afford a Chroma 8000 for the shop floor and not just in engineering. I bet they'll get both lines up and running once again.
