More about anyone powewr supply hold
  1. Never heard of them
    Plus its a 800W for $55....theres a reason its $55 :pfff:
    Dont bother with it
  2. You can buy them from lots of places for 40~55 bucks.
    Cannot find any reviews on them, or the 12 volt rail amp ratings. I'd say you are going to get what you pay for here, a cheap PSU.
    Anyone on this forum will tell it you this is one thing you do not want to cheap out on.
    If this is for your nephew's office PC that he checks email and runs Microsoft office, maybe okay. If for your own rig and you lean towards more performance, run from this thing.
  3. Its 2 28A 12v rails, but the actual wattage rating isnt even there. Only picture i found of the sticker was too small to see
    Theres no website....(= no support)
  4. I wouldn't trust this in one of my gaming rigs. Thing is PSU goes, any components can go with it.

    A true 800-850W PSU like a Corsair has around 70A on the 12V rail.
  5. Ok thanks. I went with the Antec EarthWatts EA500
  6. Good luck!

    Bull, they are usually in the 20-35 amp range.
