    It's probably Enhance or CWT made, seems like a downgraded version of Masterwatt Lite, maybe targeted to other markets.

    Thanks.
    As Masterwatt Lite aren't great performance/quality PSUs it would be interesting to see how these are compared, as @satyr01 said, to other low cost PSU as the mentioned FSP Hexa II or Be Quiet System Power 8, Cougar STX or EVGA W1.

    I don't have a hell of a lot of faith in low cost PSUs anymore, but as long as they 1) Can deliver their rated power and keep voltage regulation and ripple within check and 2) Last at least 2 or 3 years, then ok. I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too. Just as long as it is not like in the old days, I remember my Thermaltake "410W" PSU blew up after half a year and killed my mobo (and I suspect it may have murdered at least one hard drive during that time).

    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

    Hexa 2 is amusingly tragic (many forget the first Hexa is long gone), this? I know CM and they can't create really competitive product. Evga 430W will be, still, a much better option.

    Coolermaster V fully mod is still a very good unit and when on sale holds up super well value-wise compared to newer options from Seasonic/Corsair etc (Makes me wonder why more companies didn't jump on that Seasonic platform). EVGA 430w is also pretty damn bad, low cost PSUs in general make little sense nowadays when you can get a CX/CXm for $25 quite often (USA) or 30-35 Euros gets you a BeQuiet Pure Power 10/10-cm 400w...

    BQ! PSUs are nowhere able to hold any competition in general..if they do not suck, they are more expensive than competition which will offer more an better at lower price. But I definitely agree with CX (new, grey sticker), but not at us, locally. Evga 430W is ~37€ and new CX/CXm starts somewhere at 50€, but there it competes with EVGA B3, which I do not adore at all when there are new CX/CXm.

    But, hell, 25$ for new CX/CXm (low-wattage models I reckon)? I am packing my schiit and wait for me, uncle!

    That's not true.
    The Pure Power 10 he mentioned is pretty good...
    Prices in Europe are also pretty good. Don't know about the Russia Sphere and China/Asian Market...

    Be Quiet PSUs only are competition in certain countries.
