Believe it or not... hand built! The only ones that I know of that are not are Impervio's (most of the SilverStone Olympia and Decathlon.) Those are built by robots, but even then I think some final assembly is done by hand. I should ask for a tour.

Jonny, ok that is interesting. I would assume if they were built by robots then it would cost the manufacturer more money to reconfigure the robots ect ect. I've had a similiar tour in a small factory and believe it or not most of the devices were also hand built. It's all very fascinating

Not sure if changes made to robot built product would cost more or not. Initially, I'm sure it might. But those costs are quick and easy to recoup. Like if I spend $3K on a tooling to stamp a logo ona PSU housing, but the tooling is good for 10K stampings and my initial order is 1000 units, I just factor in an additional $1 for that tooling in the first 1000 units.

Not a lot of product is built in Taiwan anymore because labor is so cheap in China. Even Taiwan companies out source to China. But Impervio built their PSU factory in Taiwan. Why? Well, they don't have to worry about labor costs! You don't pay robots! On the other hand, the gentleman that started Impervio is Taiwanese. He may have just not wanted to move to mainland China to open a PSU factory that would be primarily run by robots. Not sure. I'll definitely ask for that tour. Hope they let you take cameras.

Threads like these get pretty rough, but they're also the best because this is when I (and others) learn the most.

This is nothing.

One of the reasons I keep coming back here to discuss these kinds of things is because they can be discussed intelligently. The crowd here is smarter than the average bear. In a lot of other forums, this ends up with trolling, shilling, yo mamma fights... you name it.

Your mother! Jks

Modular is better if you don't have 5 Hard Drives, etc

When I've finished my upgrades, I'll have a DVD drive, Hard Drive, the 4pin and 24 pin motherboard connectors, and maybe a molex one, a PCIe one, and thats about it, maybe a floppy drive one too.

Most PSUs, have 6 Molex connectors, Two SATA ones, at least 1 PCIe one, and 1 floppy drive one on the end of a molex one.

So, I need 2 Molex, 1 SATA, 1 PCIe, 1 24 and 4 Pin connector and one Floppy connector, thats a spare Molex connector on one tree, and one spare tree (there's 3 on a tree, as I like to call it) One spare SATA one, that I will not have anywhere to hide, except MAYBE behind the mobo Tray (Its hard to get cables in there without any modding.) and if I had more than one PCIe cable, even more to hide!

That's why Modular ftw unless you have a case that has more holes on the mobo tray than swiss cheese.

Too expensive for you, but I don't think it's good to tell people how to spend their money... unless they're just plain being stupid about it.

People buy an Acura over a Honda. Why? Leather seats? Heated, auto dimming mirrors? Does it make the car really DRIVE any better? Well... that's up to one individual's perception. It may improve the "driving experience" (although I personally don't like the feel of leather seats, most do.) If it's the same motor there's no improved performance, gas mileage, etc. I drive a Hyundai and I'm perfectly happy with it. I don't tell people they shouldn't buy Acuras because they're "too expensive". Depends on where your priorities are.
Thats a weak argument. I am not telling anyone how they should spend their money, I am telling you what I think about it.

Yeah, and the new acuras are more powerful than the Hondas, Not the same engine. Same company built it though. And my TL definitely handles better than the accords I tested as well. I <3 my TL. I also like my PCP&C 610 silencer.With my old POS modular psu (POS company) i used all the cables anyways, and although i don't use all the cables now, i have plenty of room to hide them.
