Default Xilence SQ 450w @ Planet3D Now

http://www.planet3dnow.de/vbulletin/...d.php?t=411363

Awful caps on the secondary and high ripple because of it. Like wise, they threw in a sleeve bearing fan.
Before the German's complain, it's a high speed model as well.

On top of being Andyson, I can't really say that I'd ever recommend this guy to someone.

That does not look promising. Are those Asia-X caps? They really look like the caps sitting in a couple of my dead PSUs...

Trashy... so far, the only decent units based on these new Andyson platforms are the lower output GT Gold units from AeroCool (which also seem to be HEC made, which is strange considering the GX-S from Cougar are clearly Andyson made )

It's awful considering a single ball bearing, & some teapo caps would have made this unit at least a good budget option.

Jun Fu, although them, AsiaX, and Fuhjyyu are the same.

Considering it's a Xilence PSU it was fantastic...
The rest Xilence did so far was far worse than this unit...
Nothing worth mentioning, as it's the case with this unit.

Though I don't understand why they went for Andyson (as did LC-Power) as I won't trust them further than I can throw them...

^The Solytech build XQ units are alright.

I wouldn't trust them nearly as far as I can throw 'em, those cables make for a pretty good olympic hammer toss type throw.


I'm almost happy to see this, I can finally point to a platinum unit and say "Look, people, the 80+ badge does NOT mean quality!"

I'm not sure if the tested unit even is the real product or just a pre-production sample.

My sample:
https://www.computerbase.de/news/201...-bis-650-watt/

I talked to the Xilence pr guy today because of the 80Plus issue. The sample @ Ecova is full range, this unit is 230V-only, so the certificate is not valid for this one. Xilence told me they are going to send me a sample of the version which is actually sold. We'll see...

Good to see it has Teapo's in that one at least.

Still, sleeve bearing fan in such an expensive product is a waste.
