    i would look at a different power supply if i was you. 700w for £40? there not quality or there lying about the power output. get a seasonic or a tagen power supply.

    should provide enough power for 99% of systems.

    Albanian goat herders for a bit of extra cash i think.

    Avoid at all costs......PSUs are DEFINITELY one component where you get what you pay for.

    EZCool is not a brand, its cheap and nasty!
    Gigabyte Poseidon Case - Gigabyte Motherbaord - AMD Athlon64 4000+ - Radeon HD 5870 - 4GB DDR-III - 22" Samsung LCD - Logitech Lazer Mouse

    How to find out the actual PSU maker
    http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/370


    You want to know the numbers (well ones they say it is) look on the sticker on the side/top, afaik they have to be on there.


    EDIT: after a quick dig on google EZCool is a brand name owned by JSP-Tech

    There is a nice little application with the ones on sale now that allow you to see the load / voltages ect. Direct from the PSU

    There is a few reviews about, but all the ones ive seen so far are pretty crap and along the lines of "We plugged it in, it had a bloo fan, played a few games on it and it worked fine".
    If anyone knows of any good reviews, feel free to post em

    Looking for things like efficiency of a unit (Real measurements, not manufacture ones), Ripple on the rails ect....

    The 700w killed 3 hard drives, damaged my RAM, GPU and motherboard. Mine is just a paperweight now

    LOL!.. That pretty much describes £40 700W PSUs down to a fine tea.

    Seriously, if you don't want PSUs to blow up on you (and take your hardware with it) pay for a proper PSU. Chances are even 500W will be overkill for your rig if you do the math.

    My guess is you'll be needing that 3 year warranty, although 12 months probably would have still been overkill as I wouldn't imagine it will last that long under anything approaching heavy load.

    As others have said, you're far better off with a high quality 400Watt supply than a cheap 700Watt supply. Notice the ripple tests on their website are at "Full Load State 350W" - that's probably a more realistic indicator of it's true output capability, and trading standards would probably also like to look at their claims of it being "more stable than any other company's PSU".

    Sorry.
