So, is it possible Andyson is just buying those fans from some obscure source and not doing proper checking?

It can be a lot of things, from someone needing glasses, to EVGA asking to put a FDB sticker on a sleeve bearing to a bad badge or something entirely different.

Definately not regular sleeve bearing, I'd say. Anyone can check some more Andyson made EVGA PSU? I think quite a lot of us share the same suspicion here now and checking soem more models would be helpful.
