Has anybody ever figured out what IBUYPOWER's PSUs are?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I mean their standard "stock" units. They're labeled as garbage throughout the Internet and I'm certain that is indeed the case, but is there any factual information anywhere about them? Like who actually makes them?

I would avoid using these kind of cheap brands. It's more likely to mess up your other components as compared to other brands.

IIRC, some of their prebuilds uses a poor excuse of a PSU from Allied/Apex made by the OEM Deer.

I'm embarrassed to say I bought one of these a few years back when I knew absolutely nothing. They used a xion xon 700w thingamajigger in mine. It was pretty terrible.


Here was mine. Apparently the oem is superflower. I know superflower makes some quality units as well. This just proves that blind faith in a single brand (I'm looking at you, you corsair/seasonic recommending sheeple) is foolish.

I did the same as King, my first rig before I knew how to build, was purchased from them. The PSU was a NZXT 400w, I can't seem to find it online though.

They used to use Ultra quite a bit, and Ultra basically took the housings and stickers of good units and put in crap internals. Fun.

They use a variety of things now.
