  1. I wouldn't buy that PSU - Get a well known brand such as Corsair, coolmaster and such..

    Ok thanks.

    Is this any good? Its made by seasonic and has 5 year warranty.
  3. Seasonic are reputable manufacturer and that PSU will do just fine for a run of the mill system.

    Do not get Coolermaster PSU's, at least 11 models on the Lemon list!

    That's an OEM version of FSP's FSP400-60GLN model. The FSP Blue Storm II 400W is based on this model. FSP does have 80 PLUS Certification for the FSP400-60GLN.

    It has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 29 Amps.

    It has active PFC and works with any type of UPS.

    FSP is the OEM for at least seven Antec PSU models.

    It's not as bad as other uninformed posters make it out to be.
  7. A review of the FSP400-60GLN can be found at http://www.silentpcreview.com/article280-page1.html ko888 is correct; FSP PSUs are not bad.
