    Default Who makes Powerman PSU's?

    So these are the bundled power supply that come with 98% of In-Win cases. My company has used hundreds if not thousands of this case over the years and they are actually very reliable in a business setting. They sure look like a cheap-o but like I said, they last upwards of 5-8 years unless they get hit with a surge or something.

    Powerman.
    It's In Win's own in-house brand.

    Decent stuff, I also build a lot PC's with In Win cases that included this or similar power supplies some years ago. But for a modern PC it gets a bit outdated.

    What do you mean by modern PC? Like High end CPU and Graphics card? Obviously you wouldn't want this powering even a RX570 but it's fine for an i3 with 8GB ram for grandma.

    Older PSUs that are double forward and group regulated without DC to DC for the minor rails don't act nicely with newer PCs.

    And some stuff will use shottier Switchers and maybe some with shottier Diodes...Interesting example here again...the tripping immediately shut off stuff...it's a switcher or some of the output rectifiers.....I pulled one it does have a lower resistance in the normal direction...I do suspect things like that. But I'm not familiar with that Larger Rectifier if it usually had a lower resistance...It's not input side those looked alright and we are not blowing the fuse...a cap?..designed to trip that stuff.

    I haven't checked Base/Collector yet..Probably would need to pull. And Probably don't have direct replacements anymore.

    But yeah PSU Repair 101 at it again lol. Neat.


    But yeah that's like cheiftec or somebody king something or another...know what your talking about...lol...some of it might been sold at stores or another maybe.

I read the essay about this here. Enough info about citation systems.

    Some PSUs are not worth repairing. They are best cannibalized.
