    Obviously I wouldn't expect B3D users to buy the cheapest of the cheap of components, especially for something as critical as the power supply, but you never know... After all, having relevant information is never evil.

    Hardware Secrets have exposed another...well, secret, here: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/blog/Hantol-PSU-Fake-PFC-Made-of-cement/220

    It's an informative, if somewhat scary read.

    I have an old 400W PSU lying around, I should add a rock to it and sell it as an 800W.

    Guaranteed 100% rock solid performance, but you should cement the deal before someone else does.
