    Default Nox Urano

    So a Spanish member over at OCN is asking me about this unit, and I really couldn't tell much from the handful of reviews available. All I could tell was that it was a 1 1/2 PCB design.

    But then I took a look at the 750W version:




    Looks Superflower-ish? But those primary caps... Do they say Fuhjyyu?
    It's my PSU in a box!
    Ooo-ooh,
    My PSU in a box, baby!

    SuperFlower yeah.

    It's the same build as the Kingwin Mach1 800w

    Primary caps do look to be Fuhjyyu

    Ok, yeah.


    But I just noticed... Is that secondary PCB actually perfboard? Kinda looks like it.

    I don't know whats under it, but it deals with going from PPFC to APFC I bet.

    I've not seen a disection of any of the units featuring that PCB, even though Kingwin, XION/AXP, and a few other brands sell them.

    The "SF" on the transformer is a dead giveaway.

    It's a 230V only unit.

    My guess is some extra transient filter components.

    You sure it's 230v only?

    The sticker on the side looks like the "ActivePFC" sticker that is on many of the first APFC Super Flower units.

    Way too many SMT components to be a simple add-on transient filter board. I think it's a APFC board.

    That's what I think as well.
