    Default Name that PSU manufacturer

    Hopefully this will prove a challenge to some of you guys. The UL is registered under the actual OEM.



    So who wants to take a crack at it?

    Well, since it's the Gigabyte PSU, it's a Chanel Well, right?

    Shouldn't have posted that comment the other day.......

    Yup. Channel Well.

    With all the caps cleverly turned so I can't see the markings on them.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the new Thermaltake Purepowers looked like this too....

    What can't you tell? From here it is a 330uF 400v cap.....a closer pick and we might be able to help.

    I mean manufacturer markings.

    There is no way for me to jimmy the lens of my camera in close enough to see the manufacturer. Heck, I can't even see it with my eyes because one side is blank and the other (with all the identifying marks) is turned towards the heatsink.

    Are the heatsinks just screwed down? Or can you get a low angle shot from the side the wires come out?

    Believe it or not the area on the case where the wires come out is there to stay and the side of the heatsink that touches the housing is completely solid. Basically, instead of a usualy layout of the casing (where there is a top and a bottom) on this one the entire top, bottom and one side "slot" on top of the other three sides. It was damn near impossible to open.

    It is closed back up so I can run some tests but I will try ot pop off the heatsink on the next go-around.

    There is nothing to see of the caps on the secondary other than that one cap to the right of the transformer. On first glance it looks like a Rubycon.

    All right caps on the primary and secondary are Matsushitas. The Primary is rated at a very odd 89*C with the secondaries at the normal 105*C.

    I take it you tore the heatsink off?
