  1. That means it can handle a peak load of 460w for a short time a very short time, but don't waste your money on cheaper no name brands if you can get a more well known one.
  2. I could not find any technical reviews of the power supply.
  3. I'm glad I wasn't the only one, I almost began to doubt my powers of google-fu.
  4. The psu is manufactured in China and sold in the UK. I could not find detailed technical specifications at a few UK vendor sites I visited. I am not very good with UK prices but it appears to be a low budget psu.

    kocevace - If possible you might want to consider a high quality psu for your system. Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, and Seasonic have a reputation for high quality power supplies. They consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. An good alternative choice would be the Antec Earthwatts EA-500.

    I am guessing generic junk. I like Corsair and Antec.

    Always ignore "peak" power ratings. It's a useless specification in a computer power supply.

    Antiq shematic with low 12V and high 5V, for 500W PS for 12V only 18A? :ouch:
  8. @OP: DO NOT skimp on the PSU. You should save up a bit more money and get a quality PSU from Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, PC Power & Cooling, OCZ, or hell may be even Thermaltake. I'd take a Thermaltake over this junk any day.
  9. a corsair 400cx is better than that crap 500w, mr OP!
