    Default 1stplayer Ar 80 plus gold series?

    so this power suppply series just entered indonesia for a gold rated psu with llc and dc to dc it has a nice price around Rp 850k for 550w, which is around what most somewhat decent bronze psu priced at (for comparison cx 550 is around Rp 920k ish, bq sp u9 500w is Rp 800k ish,) while other budget gold rated 500/550w psu usually priced around Rp 1100k ish (like neo eco zen, cougar gx-s, seasonic gc, deepcool dq750st, bq pp 11)

    their website have picture of the internal shot of the psu
    http://www.1stplayer.com/chiefPlayer.../detail?id=183

    judging from the internal shot how does it compare to cx or the other budget gold psu (like neo eco zen, cougar gx-s, seasonic gc, deepcool dq750st, bq pp 11)

    thankyou

    A Corsair CX550 is quite a bit better, certainly worth the small price difference.

    The web design at this Chinese website this is a plain BAD Joke.
    Possibly they aim to impress half blind people.

    It looks like a modified platform of 1st Player Steampunk Aris has reviewed some time ago which performed decently.

    But differences are big enough to treat it as completely different PSU so yeah, even with this price it's a last ditch option until we'll have some reviews and reliability feedback.

    Interesting that Aris still feels
    "In power supplies, the two most important parts are the capacitors and the cooling fan."

    Hand soldering it is required for few large wires.
    All part values are calculated by computers, soldering time this is precise and made by robots.

    The Greek author just find an opportunity to post an article, with unconfirmed possibilities.
    There is a 3% of justified DOA in the production line, the author does not mention such a detail.
    Unfortunately 99% of such authors they are not certified them self's so to touch such topics.

    You do realize that this Greek author is none other than Aris Mpitziopoulos, do you ?
