    There are some decent budget grade units that can't get an 80+ certification because they lack APFC
    Here's one capable of providing just under 80+ Bronze efficiency

    It might be, but the oem (HEC) is one of the lower quality OEM
    PSU makers.

    I personally wouldn't buy a PSU brand that HEC produced
