Probably an A-Top Rhino power supply.
Not too long ago you could have got the A-Top RHINO ATP-RX500 500W power supply from NewEgg for $29 with a $29 rebate.

One active listing at NewEgg A-Top SUPER CHARGE ATP-AP550B 550W also getting poor customer reviews.

Company website home page and support pages not working - which is a very bad sign.

All signs point to "AVOID"

I have to agree the Rhino does not appear to be much of a psu. Not much of a +12 volt rail. Power connectors are not up to date.

Thanks for the help guys.

I definitely wont be using the rhino if it costs $29 with a $29 rebate. lol It sounds like a disaster in the making.

Im now looking at the Raidmax Smilodon Mid Tower, but from the reviews on newegg and other sites, the psu seems pretty useless.

So far,

Ultra LS600

I certainly don't want my pc to blow up, so any recommendations from Tiger Direct or newegg for around $60 besides the Ultra?

Get this, its only $29.99 after rebate.

Use this promo code to get it for $39.99, then send in the $10 rebate.


Promo only good throuh memorial day.

Sorry I didn't catch this reply, I will take into consideration.
