    Y not a HEC/Compucase?
    They (ie the 400W) are able to reach 80% Efficiency at 10% Load, wich is pretty good.

    The Reason for HEC is that I know that they are pretty good at 10% load, wich I don't by the CX400...

    And if I remember correctly they may bring a small Unit with 80+ bronze.

    1. FSP Saga II (or is it Saga+ ?) 400W
    2. Seasonic S12 II 330W
    3. Corsair VX450W
    HEC isn't on the above list. I don't know why you suggest them so often when you can't actually get the better HEC PSUs in many areas.
    Main: i5 2500K@4.6GHz w/Zalman CNPS10X Performa, Intel DZ68BC, 8GB G.Skill DDR3-1600, PNY GTX 470 + EVGA GTX 470, ASUS Xonar DX, ADATA S510 120GB, Samsung 1TB F3+1TB F1+2TB F4, Kingwin LZG 1kW, Lian-Li PC-9F, Dell U2212HM+S2209W, Win7 Professional.

    Yes, I'm a novice, recapping is too difficult for me right now. But thanks for your suggestion, 370forlife.

    I saw an Aopen 400W too in my local stores, I don't know the exact model number though. What do you think about it, compared to the S12?

    That's right, I still can keep my TX, thanks for your suggestion.

    So far, I can only find 1 HEC Win Power with 550W output. The wattage seems to big for the Atom build.

    So, right now I'd lean for either CX400W or S12-330W. Let's see if I can find more models other than the Aopen.

    Oh, too bad, it's even cheaper than the CX and the store keeper told me it has lifetime warranty.

    Well, there's a reason it's cheaper .

    OK, haven't thought about that, here in Germany the (better) HECs are available in the bigger/better online stores so that's not a problem but we also have some units you can't buy (the Arctic Fusion 550R for example wich is a pretty basic seasonic design with a 80mm fan)...

    So I only recommend the HECxxxTE-2WX Series and no other!

    I'd think the Seasonic is better than the FSP built AOpen.

    I agree, i wouldn't go for them.

    The Problem here is that almost nobody tests the efficiency on low loads or loads that are close to a real PC...

    I disagree!
    Aopen PSUs are generelly manufactured by FSP, so they are not that bad (but not that good either)

    Every AOpen PSU I've ever dealt with has failed, so I don't trust them. The fact that they're made by FSP doesn't instill much confidence in me either.
