    Why did you subject yourself to buying one?

    I bought one. It's made by HEC and is actually a COST DOWN version of the same platform Corsair uses for the VS Series. That's right. A COST DOWN VS. Smaller main transformer (not capable of full output at higher temperatures or altitude), thinner gauge wires and no heatsink on the primary switcher.

    Essentially.... a boat anchor.

    VS new series use a pretty big tranformers ERL39 in all version (include 400w). ERL35 is enough for 400 500w
    Before VS new series release . cougar STX and EVGA 80plus-(W?)/B (HEC ) use same big ERL39 for 400 500W range

    Corsair's VS Series has a big transformer because it needs to actually work in most conditions. If you're running at room temperatures and/or under 10000 feet altitude then sure... the smaller transformer will work at full load without saturation. But that's not how Corsair specs a PSU.

    True, HEC's stock product has an equally small transformer as the EVGA, but it also fails Corsair's testing.

    Are those actually made by HEC inhouse or are those subcontracted to other factories?

    Doesn't matter to me. I bought one and opened it up and said "oh hey... That looks REALLY familiar."

    Well, the same design made in different factories can be quite different quality. That's why I'm curious.

    Same design from any factory is still bottom of the barrel. That's my point. This thing could be made by Delta or Flextronics and still not put out 450W continuously or pass 80 Plus Bronze.
