Interesting. My 500W Version Tesla might have a ripple problem.

11.6v-11.65v on the 12v and it got a golden award?

This thing is passable when it comes to Vreg. Nothing more. Doesn't deserve an award IMO.

Its v. reg is nothing to write home about, that is for sure. The thing is that Gabe pushed it way over its limit (55C I saw in the corresponding table) and in this PSU as temps go up v. reg gets worse.

It's getting to the point where if it's an HEC, I'm not even giving it the benefit of the doubt. I'm staying away from it, and advising anyone who asks to do the same.

Can't say I'd give it an award with it putting out 11.65v, but that's just me. I wouldn't have pushed it to 55c either if it's not rated for it. If it is rated for it, it better be able to function correctly there IMO.

The caps could use some improvement too IMO. I also wouldn't give it gold.

I've never seen a Hong Shen fan...
How is it? Better/worse than the young lin they used before?

Hong Sheng fans are, from my experience, a bit lower than YLTC & Yate Loon in terms of quality.

This fan looks like the A1225SM but the part number is different. If it is the 2000 RPM model, it's a bit harsher in terms of noise than a Yate.
A properly oiled & sealed bearing shouldn't have that issue.

I have a few of their fans, and spec's wise, they should be better than Yate's in terms of noise vs RPM.
Though, most of them (which were all pulls from PSUs) were not oiled properly and were better after I re-oiled them and re-sealed the bearing.
