    Looking at pictures from the outside, I'll see no, it looks to different.

    Someone should buy 450/500W and 550/650W and open them.

    @jon don't you need to buy one to check if it can compete with Corsair's lineup?

    Anyhow Chemicon is Japanese
    Remember that Stefan is in Europe. The continent is so saturated with local "reasonably priced" cars that you don't see many of the mainstream Japanese cars we see in the U.S.

    The same is true in China. You have a bunch of Chinese brands and Volkswagens (which all of the Taxis are) and then all the high end stuff is Lexus, Infiniti, Acura... and even Buick.

    Yeah. I suppose I should do my due diligence here.

    Buick in China is kind of like Chevy in other countries. We have cars cheaper than Cruze and Trax sold under Buick badge. It's not a premium brand on par with Lexus/Infi, but a mainstream brand on par with VW/Toyota.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    All the taxis in Shenzhen are electric BYDs nowadays. I've ridden in them several times and they're quite nice.

    I don't know what part of Shenzhen you're in, but no where near anywhere I've ever been. They're still driving VW Santana's where I'm at.

    Interesting. This was in western and northern Shenzhen. I guess I shouldn't have said all of them. For some reason I thought they finished the switch over recently.

    That doesn't look like a FDB or 2BB fan which Seasonic both claimed it should have.
    This is a S1202512L FDB one: https://www.pcper.com/reviews/Cases-.../Detailed-Look

    Anyhow first one that finds the Jap cap gets a cookie.

    This is all the photos they could muster, seriously? Why are some reviewers allergic to top-down shots?
