Buy it and send it to the U.S.

Is it still legal to sell that thing in the EU? It's passive PFC.

Found a video:

Seems to be made by Deer/Allied for a plethora of vendors. Either with a 80mm fan or 120mm fan.

Apparently, even Newegg, under their Rosewill brand, sold this PSU in the U.S. until government got their heads out of their asses and decided that selling these PSU's to Joe Public is potentially lethal.

European market oversight is usually poor. There are some exceptions, mostly nordics.

What use would it be for someone like Wolf to squander time on this unit that could be better spent on a unit that might be of utility?
