2 out of 5 eggsPowmax 230w PSU Burnout Fix

Pros: Small form-factor PSU. Decent power rating.

Cons: Known issue with burnout due to defective fan. The fans (usually marked as Cherry brand from China) typically die after a short time, causing massive overheating an failure of the unit. I researched several online forums and found this to be a widespread problem with the 230w units.

Other Thoughts: Upon purchase, immediately replace the internal fan with a high-quality ball bearing fan from Evercool, Thermaltake, or any other quality brand. This inexpensive modification will yield a fairly reliable unit. I've had mine running for about 18 months with modification after frying 2 with stock fans within 3 months.

1 out of 5 eggsPOJ

Pros: Fits many cases/setups (because the fan is inside).

Cons: Burned out after only two months (while the computer was turned OFF ?!). Some components carbonized completely.
Really noisy for the power it delivers and on top of that it doesn't even run cool.
It doesn't have all the screwholes necessary for matx psu compatibility, I had to drill a hole in my Ahanix D5 case to make this thing attach properly.

Other Thoughts: I don't think this PSU has a fuse at all (it shouldn't even be allowed to sell) or any protection circuitry whatsoever.

2 out of 5 eggsToo cheap to be good

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the hassle

Pros: Higher power output than most factory supplied power supplies. It does have a dead man switch on the back, which can be handy.

Cons: I bought this mATX supply since it has a higher power output than most of the 'from the factory' power supplies that come stock in many off the shelf machines. Within a few months, the first supply died from over heating due to the cooling fan seizing up. I figured it must have been a fluke and that the replacement would take care of the problem for good. The replacement lasted even less time than the first. The fan did not seize up, it just flat died. It would spike a quick reading on a power supply tester, and then the lights on the tester would go dark.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased other regular ATX Powmax power supplies in the past, and have had good luck with them for the most part. For that reason, I was not apprehensive to purchasing one of their mATX power supplies. I have to say, though, that this power supply was and is a complete disappointment. I feel that you would be doing yourself a favor to steer clear of this power supply and go for a different brand. Ultimately, that is what I had to do to avoid anymore unnecessary down time.

1 out of 5 eggsSave yourself some headaches

Pros: None!

Cons: Won't last long. Junk!

Other Thoughts: I bought two cases with these PSUs here. Both died within a month. After a RMA one died within hours and the other one lasted a month. I didn't send them back because the shipping cost wasn't worth it and they would only die again. Don't buy these PSUs! Pure junk!
