Very low price for quality stuff.

"High Efficiency:
Sounds a bit waff, is that usual ? Use any more than 176w and the 80% efficiency drops.

I didn't know what modular PSU's are.... I see the advantage now!

It should surely read >80% efficiency...i.e. GREATER than 80% efficiency, not less than?

Never heard of of AOPEN PSUs. Always good to go with a reputed brand when it comes to PSUs. If this was a similar spec Corsiar, FSP, Antec, Silverstone, NorthQ etc. at this price it would be extremely hot but until I read a review of this I'd be a bit wary.

Not voting either way just yet.

same here, sounds very tempting but i cant find many stockists to compare too, or a review.
shame cos i need a new psu.

NorthQ is not in the same league with the others mentioned above...

Aopen does not make the PSU from the scratch (Corsair and Antec do not produce its PSUs too ).
I do not know how the situation is looking now but Aopen was always supplied by FSP.
They do care about reputation with regards to PSUs, so you can be sure of its quality.

I voted cold because compair to my dell the leads are sort according to the picture seams the other way round.

No details on the 12V rail, which is really the main point of getting a big PSU like this. The wattage output is pointless without it.

What a useless post. Most modern Dells use standard ATX PSUs now. And if you have a Dell old enough that doesn't you most certainly won't be looking at getting these types of PSUs.

That is not a modular psu in the picture. Just some tidy cable management;-)

i wouldnt touch this, not enough info, id want to know how many amps it kicks out on the 12v rails etc.

Tidy indeed, but with 2 HDDs, an optical drive and a single graphics card I'd cringe if it was untidy ;-)


The PSU on offer seems reasonable enough though, but you'd have to be running a lot drives or high spec CPU and graphics cards to warrant a need for that much power.

Quick search reveals all.....

20A per 12v rail.

AOpen site suggests only two 12v rails; ]AOpen, but independent site suggests four 12v rails; ]Hardware Info

Now that is tidy *slides own pc case behind back*

This is something I've never mastered, inside my case its like a can on spaghetti exploded but I do have the meagre excuse that there are 10 fans in there.

Anyroadup, as for the deal. No 12v rail details, no likey, no votey, no wanty

hardware info link does not work.

Okay, I am voting this cold..or not at all, can't decide.
The only reason is that you would probably get just as much quality and performance from a lower voltage/better make such as Corsair/
Aopen are decent enough, this one may be made by FSP as some they have are who are an excellent company but I still think you are toying with one of the most important parts of a PC and after many years of building them I learnt that it was not a piece of hardware to mess about with,
It may kick out some decent on the 12v rail but it needs to keep within a range and with the information offered I would tend to stray away from something that was not a proven 12v rail performer.

hardware.info/en-…LN/

Looks good to me, steady unit, decent efficiency, 4 x 20A 12V rails, good price. Can't see why peeps are voting cold.

never heard of this one , must be an Ebuyer special or a new range to the UK, I stick to tried and tested components in the PCs I build.

how does this compare? ]http//ww…047 i dont really understand what all the figures mean with PSU's :oops:

and would it be an unwise move for me to buy a PSU as the first component i buy for my first build?

So it comes into its own after 20%load....lol(obviously a miss print. But should they even be saying >80% below 20% load and still call it >80%efficient)

lol you have a dell....
Aopen are a reputable company(the psu will be manufactured by someone else probably FSO very good company) .But if you don't intend to use this for a mega setup then go for a corsair, hiper ,zalman ,silver stone or enermax with lower watts.:thumbsup:

would this fit a dell xps 420, dont no anything about pc's,

choose your components first, then choose a psu 2 match. id start with cpu and gfx cards then mobo then ram then psu and case.

and regarding the psu, id not buy it, not voting cold tho, might be okay for some people but when u have 2 4890s oc to 2 ghz core and over 30% oc on the cpu u need a good stable 12 rail. imo a high single 12v rail bets multi rails.
i bought this a ]corsair tx 750
high quality psu but with out cable management but i use most of them anyway :P

Its correct "=less than 80% efficent only using 20% of its max output.
If there is less than an 20% load it wont be 80% efficent. It needs to burn 'x' amount of power to tick over. When it gears up the energy that has been wasted for it to tick over then goes into driving the PC.

Think of a car using more fuel for all the short trips compared to getting to best consumption on a long non stop drive.

Personally I wouldnt buy this brand.

AOpen have been around for donkeys years, their PSU's are made by FSP, and therefore have a pretty good rep, anyway this Hotdeal is no longer on offer coz Ebuyer have jacked the price up by £20.

NorthQ PSU's have a very good reputation and there are some very good reviews that show the BlackMagic fully loaded being a very stable Power supply and as good as and better than a lot of more expensive models. I don't know where you get your information or even if there's anything backing it but in this case you have proved you know very little about Power Supplies.

Most of the big names are nothing more than OEM's for companies like FSP, very few of them actually manufacturer there own so mentioning the likes of Antec means nothing as in the world of power supplies they are a pretty pants make.
