    Default Xilence Performance A+ III Series 550w PSU Review

    It may not look too fancy, but the performance was quite a surprise!

    The inside of this PSU looks awfully familiar.

    I'm also willing to bet those caps of unknown Chinese/Taiwan origin can't handle 105 degrees.

    While the main PCB looks generally good, it does again speak of some generally inexpensive components. It might sound like a weird or trivial point, but you do some to associate less-expensive manufacturing processes by the overall coloring. Put simply, we see a lot of yellows, reds, and even a bit more exposed copper than wed usually expect!
    🤦‍♂️

    Ah, thanx! I missed that part. Makes it a lot easier to see if the PSU is a quality one or not. Especially if you combine this with the color of the transformer which determinaties the performance. Yellow being low performance, green being average and black being high performance.
