    Default Who is the manufacturer of your PSU?

    Still a work-in-progress

    Many common branded PSUs are not made by the company that sells them. In fact, most companies that sell PSUs do not actually make them rather, they are re-branded OEM products from specialised PSU-manufacturing companies. The following is a list of common PSUs and their actual manufacturers.

    Antec is a well known PSU company that has had questionable PSUs in the past. Their older CWT-built models were plagued with failure of their Fuhjyyu capacitors. Since changing their main OEM for the mainstream units to Seasonic and Delta Electronics, Antec PSUs have improved substantially. They now use Delta Electronics for their high end PSU's and are very high quality.

    Silent Pro 500W-700W Enhance
    Silent Pro M1000 FSP
    Silent Pro Gold Enhance

    Most of the PSU's Coolermaster brand are midrange budget/value models, whilst they will get the job done there are usually better options at the same price levels. The newer Enhance models are quite good.

    Corsair (known for its memory products) made a big impact with their initial Seasonic-built HX series. All products since have been top notch and are among the best performing, quietest, and best value PSU's. The Seasonic models are generally quietest, but all models have excellent performance. The AX series is the latest and greatest series.

    Fortron Source (FSP)
    FSP manufacture their own PSUs.

    Been around for a long time, most PSU's they manufacture are average to slightly above average units.

    OCZ used FSP as its OEM manufacturer for a long time. Their PSUs were of questionable quality, being based on the Epsilon model. However, they have taken a big step forward since acquiring PC Power & Cooling in 2007. The Impervio units and some Sirtec models are excellent.

    PC Power & Cooling (owned by OCZ)
    Silencer Seasonic
    Silencer MK II Sirtec
    Turbo Cool Wintact

    The 1kW Turbo Cool is considered one of the highest quality PSUs available; despite being one of the loudest, it is a high-quality server-grade PSU. The Silencer series is good, although their are better Seasonic built units available, that are also quieter and better value. PCP&C units are not currently sold in Australia.

    Seasonic manufacture their own PSUs.

    Long time PSU manufacturer, all of their products are very good, one of the few OEM's to still make quality low-mid power units. Seasonic units are generally quiet, high quality and good value.

    Seventeam manufacture their own PSUs. However, the quality of the PSUs are not much better from Generics.

    Zeus(ZF)(<1000W) Etatis
    Zeus ZM/ZU 1200 Impervio

    Silverstone have some excellent PSU's, and some average ones. The units built by Etatis and Impervio are excellent, the Enhance built models range from very good to excellent, the Seventeam units range average to very good, the cheaper FSP models are mainly budget-midrange units.

    Tough Power <1000W CWT (PUC platform)

    Tough Power Grand CWT

    Thermaltake PSUs have a long-standing reputation of being average at best. They switched their OEM to Channel Well (CWT) for the Tough Power and later PurePower RX series, which have some good units. You need to know what you are buying when you get a Thermaltake, especially that they are a little overpriced.

    ION 350W/460W Topower
    ION2 460W Topower
    ION2+ 450W/500W/550W Andyson

    Some reliable budget PSU. They are great bang for the buck in low end systems.
