    Received. Just need to find time to pull them open and take picture and put on the load tester. (Not necessarily in that order)

    I started with the 1000W.

    So the PSU does not do 1000W, even at room temperature.

    But it didn't blow up either. It actually ran for a couple minutes and then shut down with a soft little "click". Cycled the power and reduced the load and tried again.

    Seems that the 1000W can do 800W at room temperature fairly continuously. And at a decent 82% efficiency as well.

    I'm going to open the unit up next.

    I see a price of 150 dollars for the 1000W version. I would call that extremely overpriced.

    60% off seems to have gone, plus the prices also went up

    How about the 750W unit? The seller provides a coupon that buy a 1000W then get a 750W for free. The 600W unit was on sale for $8 with free shipping two days ago but is still $19.99 now. Anyone bought one?

    I guess that promo code will come back soon. The price of their item changes frequently and they will be on sale like per several days. I've been watching the price and stock quantity of their psu for about two weeks. They sold around 100 600W units just in 72 hours. Around 60 of them were sold during the $8 sale and the rest were sold at $19.99.

    Got that one too. That one's next.

    Come to think of it, the 1000W could never do 1000W. The label says it can only do 876W on the +12V rail. It has DC to DC, so that's going to take power from the +12V. So if you load up the +12V, you can't load the +3.3V or +5V. If you load up the +3.3V and +5V, you can't load up the +12V.

    Even if you add the -12V and +5VSB, you can't get 1000W.

    I installed the 600W unit into one of my testing platform, 6700k and GTX 970 no OC. The psu fan keeps spinning at full speed all the time and there's a buzzing from it even the system running at idle. For an $8 unit, I won't complaint but I doubt the reliability of their product. I definitely won't use these in my daily use build. It seems worth for using them with an external GPU? Those built in psus in the external GPU boxes are also poor quality?
