    Default Is Owltech a legitimate psu distributor or fake?

    I saw some posts on our lOcal online pc store here in the Philippines about a psu reseller. So I ask him what he sells and he sent me a picture of FSP Raider II 80+ silver but the catch is there is a Owltech.co.jp on the box is it legit?

    I don't get the question.

    They're a reseller in Japan. They sell FSP.

    Are they legit? I just found out about them hence Im curious. Are their components good just like the ones without the owltech logo?

    You can check for yourself on Owltech's website to see if the model you are looking at really exist.
    https://www.owltech.co.jp/product-cat/fsp

    Some brands will work with local distributors to come up with region-specific models that differ slightly from the standard products in various ways. Could be just localized retail box, different cable configuration, fan, accessories, or capacitors, etc...

    That's a Japanese thing. They do the same thing with Corsair products. They slap a huge label with a bunch of Japanese on it on the box. Still the same product inside.

    I understand the concern though.

    Check out this thread where Owltech packaged a Seasonic G-Series:\

    Fucking SR-71 Blackbird has his panties all in a knot over it thinking it's fake!!!

    But it's fine.

    Yeah I asked in that sight and he is also the one who answered my thread saying Owltech psus that they are selling are not good quality ones.

    The catch is I really need a new psu and the seller of the Owltech distributed psu's wont answer my questions hence I bought a Seasonic M12ii Evo 80+ Modular 520
    Do you think that will be enough for my build and future build? I already have the psu if it affects the stability of my future build, please suggest a cpu that is somewhat similar to Ryzen 5 2600

    current:
    i3 4160
    GA H81M-S1
    8gb ram
    GTX 1050Ti
    3 fans
    2 7.2k hdd's

    future:
    Ryzen 5 2600
    B350m
    RX580

    Yeah... you would've been better off with the FSP from Owltech.

    Why did you need a new PSU right now? The Corsair VS450 wasn't dead right?

    If he has a VS450, then he got a worse PSU than he had and - like bitwit, got blinded by the label and replaced a better PSU with a worse one because there is a label from a "known brand" on it...
