The 500w didn't though.
You also have to consider that the 450w was almost at 50*C while it's only rated at 25*C.
No it doent have 80plus certification and no pc runs 25 degrees inside.
It is important to note that we were very generous with temperatures, because we started testing this unit at 85 W, a load that doesnâ€™t produce a lot of heat inside our thermal chamber. We didnâ€™t want to heat our thermal chamber with the power supply running at a higher load because we didnâ€™t know beforehand if the power supply would be able to deliver any higher load. Therefore we decided to play on the safe side.
And a psu is not suppose to explode! lol But the Jumper and X7 are good units.
But did they step up due to this?
From six different power supply models from Huntkey we tested to date, five of them couldnâ€™t deliver their labeled wattage, literally exploding (we posted the videos of the explosions on YouTube). They offered us money to take the reviews down and also started a campaign to make other manufacturers to boycott us, which actually backfired on them.
