Chieftec's new line of TASK PSUs range from 400 W to 700 W and carry most of the features we expect from mainstream PSUs such as Active-PFC, electric and thermal safety systems, ERP 2013 compliance, sleeved cabling and a 120 mm temperature controlled fan. Though the entire range features a 12 V rail, it is important to note that the 400 W and 450 W do not have a PCIe connector and therefore will be unsuitable for most discrete graphics cards, however the 500 W and 700 W versions come with one and two 6+2 pin PCIe connectors respectively
Unfortunately there is no word on pricing or availability, but this has all the makings of a solid budget PSU.

I wonder how many of these companies actually make power supplies. Rather than re-branding generic parts.
It's like hearing about PNY releasing new 1333mhz DDR3 memory.

Careful with Corsair. Some of their cheap models have issues (IE CX V1 and V2 series models and I'm not sure about the newer V3, granted I've been told that they're better than their predecessors).
