I listed them earlier. Hm. Nine actually. Here's a bit better breakdown.


SeaSonic - SeaSonic, Corsair, Antec, PC Power & Cooling (OCZ), XFX, Jou-Jye, Silver Power
Channel Well - Corsair, Thermaltake, Xigmatek, Enermax
Delta Electronics - Antec
FSP - Antec, CoolerMaster, Thermaltake, OCZ, Sparkle Power Inc., BeQuiet
Enhance - CoolerMaster, Silverstone, Thermaltake, Zalman
Sirtec - OCZ, PC Power & Cooling (OCZ), Rosewill, Thortech, Thermaltake
Enermax - Enermax, Lepa, Sapphire
Superflower - Rosewill, NZXT, Kingwin, Xion, Sentey
Great Wall - OCZ, Sparkle Computer Co.


That's unranked by the way. You can't rank manufacturers, really.

I see you've finally realized the influence you have on the OCN community.

So I sent an e-mail to Corsair... and Holy mother of Batman! I just received a brand new sealed AX1200 directly form Corsair in 48 hours after sending my e-mail, without even given a credit card number for the cross-shipping. W-O-W! i live at 5000km from Corsair!
I'm officially a Corsair customer for life now. I still don't beleive it. Corsair, a BIG thumb.gif
With after sales services like that, what can I say? Why would I go with someone else?

Because a single HCP 1200 will deal with your setup better and safer than the AX 1200 does in conjunction with the AX850!?.. or maybe because the AX1200 killed your CPU + Mobo when it failed(single rail kilowatt units ftw!)!? wink.gif

All PSU's Brands have their Failure rate,Corsair is not an exepmtion,i have the clear picture of that,i am talking about my personal expierence,that is why i recommend it to everyone seeking advice.Why moving from Corsair if it has worked perfectly for me? it makes no sense right?

However i do understand that there are other PSU brands that are great, Being Antec one of them of course. and i respect the people with make those decisions.

Phaedrus has very good intentions in believing that the High end PSU Market can be equally divided between the top notch brands,however i am almost sure it is impossible and he knows it,because with the high quality building that it is going on right now,it all boils down to Marketing (Wich Brand is more atttractive in the eyes of the end user).

It is thois ,or a totally Generic PSU Market imposed by Law from the goverment.

We are in an open Market guys,this is Capitalism,not Communism .

I totally agree with you Phaedrus2129, there MUST be competition in ANY market.

For my personal experience, the only reason I bought a X-serie Seasonic PSU is the silence. I love silence. But there is simply no other option for that other than them (but recently I've heard of an other brand with an hybrid fan solution, but can't remember wich one:( ). I tried an Antec Earthwatt because of it's huge 135mm fan, but I could still hear it wink.gif.

China and Taiwan. Design is usually in Taiwan, sometimes China. Manufacturing is always in China, usually in the Guangzhou/Dongguan/Shenzhen area. The last manufacturer to actually build their units in Taiwan was Impervio, and they were bought out by Enermax, then mostly liquidated, including the factory.

Few in Taiwan and vast majority in China.

@ Phaedrus, if you put Sirtec in there you may as well put HEC too.. they're more or less on the same level(performance wise)

Lol first I was like "WTH, why is superflower down there as it should be at least in the top 3. Then I read that it was unranked... biggrin.gif

But yea really it's hard to rank the manufacturers even though there are some that do rank below the others.
