Looks good judging by the Amps.

£33.50 from Amazon

Personally - I would definietly not recommend anyone getting Winpower PSUs. Stick to decent branded ones or from reliable OEMs. Yeah, great looking spec on paper with quad 12v rails at 32A but come'on I'd genuinely like to see them pull that much.

If you actually look very carefully at the sticker here, I reckon its dual 12v rails with 21A on each. Anyone with better eyesight confirm?

Oh ok, I bought a branded one with 25A rails, and assumed this WinPower was ok, but your right EVERYONE says buy a proper branded PS.

and if it is 21A then it's rubbish.

It all depends on what system you plan on running with it. 21A is not necessarily crap. Depends on how many 12v rails it has.
What PSU did you go for and what system are you running?
Decent makes are Enermax, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair and BeQuiet. But even these can sometime have "crap" PSU's as it depends on who the OEM is. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

That's because most people aren't testing it thoroughly. There isn't a way for most people to do proper load testing or getting ripple and noise readings. Most people also overestimate their power requirements. I'd be very surprised if you could draw anything close to the rated power without the voltage/noise/ripple going out of spec, or it simply cutting out/fireworks.
#12
This will work. But like with all other unrbanded PSU's without a forethought on efficiency, quite a lot of power going through this will be wasted as heat, etc. Don't even think about overclocking a system with one of these in. But how many people overclock nowadays as they did in the old days when the results are more rewarding.

I wouldn't touch this with a bloody barge pole mate, if it blows it could take your whole PC with it. If you are only running it with a GTX 460 you don't need something with such a high wattage. You'd be much better of sending this back and getting either this antec or http://www.scan.co.uk/products/430w-corsair-cmpsu-430cx-builder-series-80-eff-120mm-fan-single-12v-rail-atx-ps-2 for a similar price (both £35 if you get free delivery through AVforums at scan)

Hope this helps mate, going to have to vote cold though.

I'm sure it will be fine.. I've used plenty of cheap PSUs and they are still going strong.
But this is not the place to post them for deals. Many people will believe anything they read, I call them apple users/followers.

If you need a replacement PSU for a crappy old PC which isn't on 24/7 then this will work fine. With heavy usage there's argument to buy something 80+ certified on power efficiency (electricity cost) grounds alone. Also a decent PSU is likely to generate less heat and thus help minimise fan noise and risk to other components.

If you've just done a grand on OTT components, don't think about this. If you're tight on cash and can survive fan noise, higher power usage and heat output, I suppose this is ok. There are probably plenty of cheap PSU's like this around though?

Discussion point: If you *did* want a cheap PSU, why would you buy this over http://www.scan.co.uk/products/800w-storm-lpj19-43-silent-23db-eps-12v-120mm-fan-retail ? It's ~20% cheaper and as an acquaintence from Croydon might say, "the numbers are bigger, innit".
