    Default Excelvan 1000W discussion

    jonnyGURU, Oklahoma Wolf (and any others - Sorry I don't know who all gives reviews) thank you for the service you provide. I just registered, but I've been reading you reviews for over 10 years. They have helped me countless times in deciding whether or not to buy a power supply.

    First off, I don't buy cheap power supplies for me or the computers I build! But no matter how much advice you give some people, they are still going to try and cheap out and pay as little as possible to protect their $1000 system. It makes no sense to me!

    That being said, do you accept suggestions/power supplies for testing? Don't know if I can post links, but there's a brand "Excelvan" on Amazon with an instant 60% off of the available power supplies in 500W, 600W, 750W, 800W, and 1000W variants. The 750W and 1000W versions are shaped and styled like the Corsair RM series. I sincerely doubt they're made by CWT! But with the discount, the 750W is only $12 shipped!

    At that price, people are going to take a risk. Maybe a review from your site will shed some light on the internals and convince or dissuade people to buy/avoid them? I will be happy to have one delivered to you guys because I'm very curious myself. Thanks guys!

    LOL! That is NOT a CWT built PSU.

    I love how they use Corsair stylization on the labels and put it in an EVGA looking box. This has scam written all over it. LOLOLOL!!!

    I'm loving the peak wattage claim, if Jeremy doesn't end up test one of these I might grab one myself and see how much power it will take before it explodes

    The "26DB" under full load is also somewhat amusing.

    That's true when measured from a non-standard distance.

    Some poor person would need to evaluate it for free; but it would be interesting to see it assesed.

    I bought a couple. I'm not going to do a full on review, but I'm curious to see what they do.

    Many, many thanks; I suspect a lot of us are wondering.

    I'd like to know if it can carry full load, and if it fails gracefully on overload.
