    Question Who are Supermicro's OEMs for power supplies?

    Hello!

    A while ago I stumbled onto a document or web page on supermicro.com where each of the Supermicro-branded PSU's was listed along with the OEM who makes (or made) it.

    I can't find this document again. Has anybody else seen it? If so could you please send me the link? This would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

    I edited your thread post title in the form of a question because it looked like you were revealing their OEMs as opposed to asking who they are.

    FYI: For the most part, the are "POWERCOM" "ABLECOM" which is a company owned by the brother of the owner of SuperMicro, but I don't know if they have their own factory.

    Good idea, thank you for the explanation.

    Thanks. This helps me to research details about SM PSU's. I've had a couple of issues with a redundant pair of 1400W -SQ PSU's. I am working on solving the problem with the system integrator who I bought the system from. For some reason I was under the impression that Supermicro used Delta PSU's almost exclusively, but now I have no reason to believe in the truth or falsity of this.

    SuperMicro has used some Delta PSUs in the past. Also some Seasonic, believe it or not.

    And I edited my original post. It's not POWERCOM. It's ABLECOM.

    As far as I know, the only relationship I know of between Compuware and Supermicro is that Compuware distributes Supermicro products in the Eastern hemisphere.

    I know who AbleCom is. Supermicro is based here. (Bay area). Everyone knows that Jianfa Liang is Charles Liang's brother.

    I was asking about Compuware. I didn't think they manufactured anything and only distributed Supermicro products in the Eastern hemisphere.

    Do you have proof that says otherwise?

    It was always my understanding the Seasonic were among the best PSU's available to the end consumer and retail buyer. I certainly prefer Seasonic ATX, SFX/-L, TFX, and FlexATX when building new workstations and servers.

    Would there be any reason that the quality of Seasonic is not up to scratch when it comes to Supermicro servers?

    In actuality I have recently had problems with Supermicro PSU's (especially the -SQ kind) and I have been working with the system integrator to rectify this.

    Seasonic is good product, but it's consumer level. They're far from being a tier 1 manufacturer.

    Not sure why you're having problems with Super Micro PSUs. Can you elaborate on what kind of issues you're having?
