Pretty good for the price
This review is from: XIGMATEK XCP-A500 500W ATX12V Ver2.3 Power Supply
Pros: This is a good little power supply for the price, but it's not a 500W power supply. OEM is Andyson. I opened it up (I know it voided the warranty but if it breaks I will fix it myself) and on the 12V, it only has a single 30A rectifier. No dual rails, but that's still 360W of power. Although I think this thing combined load could only handle 350W because the transformer isn't very big (ERL-35) and would probably saturate beyond that.
Cons: Not 500W, not enough 12V filtering (Only one 3300uF cap) only 1 PCI-E 6+2 connector
Other Thoughts: This thing uses Sun primary caps, and the rest are Jun Fu and Teapo. While not the best choice of caps, they aren't exactly horrid either. I replaced them all with Panasonic and Chemi Con caps but it should still last a while with the stock caps.
