No information on OEM and can't find any reviews / teardowns. Personally I'd wait for more info or pay a little more for another brand if you can't wait
it is a Platinum PSU and I do not like the 12v double rail

Erm, is your comment supposed to be a double negative staement?.. I thought Platinum GOLD is supposed to be a good thing, right?

The important thing when it comes to power supplies is OEM / platform. That in turn gives you info on quality, reliability, safety & performance. A few percentage points on efficiency make very little difference in the scale of things.

First look for something with a quality OEM (Note: OEM is not the same as branding) Seasonic, SuperFlower, FSP, Delta (there are other good ones but these are generally amongst the best, especially the first two)

Then read a review / teardown for the specific model from a respectable publication such as jonnyguru, techradar, hardocp

You can find info on OEM of different brands/models from PSU database
realhardtechx.com/ind…tml

And if you really want detailed info on efficiency
plugloadsolutions.com/80P…spx


These lists may also be helpful to narrow search down:

Looks okay given the current state. Not much info on OEM etc. however a few reputable sites (Scan, Box) selling this. Given the amount of eastern reviews (Russia, Indonesia) would suggest it's probably a brand more prevalent in those areas rather than UK/US.
I've bought Gamemax cases and rgb fans before which were fine, Maplins usually has a lot of their stuff in. No idea on how good this would be though, doesn't seem that good a price for an 80 plus gold to be worth the risk.
I have never seen this PSU before but as many have said it is probably best to avoid until we see some reviews from reputable outlets.

Remember Bronze, Gold, Platinum are not an indication on the quality of the PSU, only on the efficiency and even then the PSUs don't always meet those standards when tested.

Take a look at this PSU: cclonline.com/pro…rpw

It is a similar price, fully modular, good manufacturer, 5 year warranty.
Looks like it would blow up after using it for 4 hours.
Baldwins rules of buying : never ever cheap out on the power supply and TBH this is not cheap and it's of poor quality.

This is cheaper on 550w but that 550w will be better than this 600w

£54.53 at CCL and if the 80+ Platinum is genuine, it can't be too bad.
Ok, 80+ isn't a magic bullet, sometimes it's fake, enforcement across model variations is weak, but it theoretically proves that a sample was tested to full rated power without blowing up instantly.
