    Scotch tape usually does the trick, and is less messy

    This is my next PSU review. A (small) problem that I found stalled my review though. All in all it is a decent performing unit at a good price, given its features and the extra bells and whistles that it carries.

    BTW this brand was named Inland before. This is why there is so little info on PowerSpec.

    Thanks for the review Wolf!

    Fan OEM: BaoDiKai


    Whelp, I'm with Wolf and that thing is gonna die in 2-3 years time. I've seen a ton of cheap LED case fans from these guys. Between the normal leakage and the skimpiness of their oil application I wouldn't put much faith in that thing.

    Inland huh? I guess it's an improvement from all of the ancient group-regulated half bridge stuff that they sold. None of it even had PFC for a long time.


    Forgot to mention as well, the thing like selling non-PFC units under their "Silver Series' and "Gold Series" names.

    Not bad, but the fan does concern me. Perhaps they are hoping on most of their customers buying the PSU overspecced and having the fan not running? To me it seems like they had to pick or choose: better caps or better fan, and they chose caps.

    Bao-Di-Kai i remember these fans being sold in cheap plastic bags for 1.99 at Tiger Direct (when it was open, you could see a hundred of them on a wall) under their PowerUP! in house brand.
    They lasted about more or less than a year with constant use, and when they were about to go, they made horrible noises from the lack of lubrication.

    hold-up time is here.

    It doesn't fail by a large margin and the power ok signal is accurate.

    Better than Xiongli?
    What about Fujin Electronics and shenzhen dongweifeng?
