Found this interesting. ^_^
http://whirlpool.net.au/wiki/PSU_Manufacturers

Now you'll know if you should get a certain brand PSU.
For anyone who is to lazy to click the link I copy and pasted directly for your convenience.

Who is the manufacturer of your PSU?

Please also see the [[psu | Power Supply Unit]], [[psu_wattage | PSU Wattage]] and [[PSU_Recommendations | PSU Recommendations]] wikis.

Still a work-in-progress

Many common branded PSUs are not made by the company that sells them. In fact, most companies that sell PSUs do not actually make them – rather, they are re-branded OEM products from specialised PSU-manufacturing companies. The following is a list of common PSUs and their actual manufacturers.

Antec
CP-850 – Delta
Basiq – FSP (Fortron Source)
Earthwatts EA380 – Seasonic
Earthwatts EA430/500 (Old models) – Seasonic
Earthwatts EA430D/500D (Current models) – Delta
Earthwatts EA650 – Delta
Earthwatts EA750 – Delta
NeoHE – Seasonic
NeoPower 430, 500, 550, 650 – Seasonic
EcoPower 380W – Seasonic
NeoPower 480W – Channel Well (CWT)
Phantom – Channel Well (CWT)
Signature – Delta
Smart Power – Channel Well (CWT)
Smart Power 2 – Channel Well (CWT)
True Power – Channel Well (CWT)
True Power 2 – Channel Well (CWT)
True Power Trio – Seasonic
True Power New – Seasonic
True Power Quattro – Enhance

Antec is a well known PSU company that has had questionable PSUs in the past. Their older CWT-built models were plagued with failure of their Fuhjyyu capacitors. Since changing their main OEM for the mainstream units to Seasonic, Antec PSUs have improved substantially. They now use Delta Electronics for their high end PSU's and are very high quality.

Cooler Master
Extreme Power 380W/430W PMSR/PMSP – HiPro
Extreme Power 380W/430W PCAR/PCAP – Acbel
Extreme Power ≥500W – Seventeam
Extreme Power Plus – Acbel
iGreen – Acbel
GX – Seventeam
Real Power – ?
Real Power Pro/M ≤750W – Acbel
Real Power Pro/M ≥850W – Enhance
Silent Pro 500W-700W – Enhance
Silent Pro M1000 – FSP

Most of the PSU's Coolermaster brand are midrange budget/value models, whilst they will get the job done there are usually better options at the same price levels. The newer Enhance models are quite good.

Corsair

CX-400 – Seasonic
VX-450 – Seasonic
VX-550 – Channel Well (CWT) (PSH platform)
TX-650 – Seasonic
TX-750 – Channel Well (CWT) (PSH(older) platform)
TX-850 – Channel Well (CWT) (PSH(older) platform)
TX-950 – Channel Well (CWT) (DSG platform)
HX-450 – Seasonic
HX-520 – Seasonic
HX-620 – Seasonic
HX-650 – Seasonic
HX-750 – Channel Well (CWT) (DSG platform)
HX-850 – Channel Well (CWT) (DSG platform)
HX-1000 – Channel Well (CWT)
AX-750 – Seasonic
AX-850 – Seasonic
AX-1200 – Flextronics

Corsair (known for its memory products) made a big impact with their initial Seasonic-built HX series. All products since have been top notch and are among the best performing, quietest, and best value PSU's. The Seasonic models are generally quietest, but all models have excellent performance. The AX series is the latest and greatest series.

Fortron Source (FSP)
FSP manufacture their own PSUs.

Been around for a long time, most PSU's they manufacture are average to slightly above average units.

Gigabyte
Superb 460W – FSP (FSP400-60GLN)
Superb Power >460W – Acbel
Odin GT – Channel Well (CWT)
Odin Pro 1200W – Channel Well (CWT)

Hiper
630W, 680W, 780W, 880W – Channel Well (CWT)
Other models – Andyson

Lian-Li
Silent Force – Sirtec
Maxima Force – Acbel

OCZ
GameXstream – Forton Source (FSP) (Epsilon platform)
StealthXstream – Forton Source (FSP) (Epsilon platform)
EliteXstream 1000W – Impervio

OCZ used FSP as its OEM manufacturer for a long time. Their PSUs were of questionable quality, being based on the Epsilon model. However, they have taken a big step forward since acquiring PC Power & Cooling in 2007. The Impervio units are very good.

PC Power & Cooling (owned by OCZ)
Silencer – Seasonic
Turbo Cool – Wintact

The 1kW Turbo Cool is considered one of the highest quality PSUs available; despite being one of the loudest, it is a high-quality server-grade PSU. The Silencer series is good, although their are better Seasonic built units available, that are also quieter and better value. PCP&C units are not sold in Aus.

Seasonic
Seasonic manufacture their own PSUs.

Long time PSU manufacturer, all of their products are very good, one of the few OEM's to still make quality low-mid power units. Seasonic units are generally quiet, high quality and good value.

Seventeam
Seventeam manufacture their own PSUs.

Silverstone
Element ST50EF – Enhance
Element ST50EFP – Enhance
Element ST70EF – FSP
Element ST85EF – Seventeam
Strider ST405 – Enhance
Strider ST50F – FSP
Strider ST85F-P – Enhance
Strider ST1500 – Enhance
Olympia OP650 – Impervio
Olympia OP1000(1000-E) – Seventeam
Olympia OP1000-P – Impervio
Olympia OP1200 – Seventeam
Decathalon DA650 – Impervio
Decathalon DA1000 – Seventeam
Decathalon DA1200 – Seventeam
Zeus(ZF)(<1000W) – Etatis
Zeus ZM 1200 – Impervio

Silverstone have some excellent PSU's, and some average ones. The units built by Etatis and Impervio are excellent, the Enhance built models range from very good to excellent, the Seventeam units range from very good to average, the cheaper FSP models are mainly budget units.

Thermaltake
TR2 430W (XP-550) – HEC
Pure Power – Sirtec (some HEC and CWT models)
PurePower RX – Channel Well (CWT)
TR2 420W, 470W, 500W, 550W – Channel Well (CWT)
TR2 RX – Channel Well (CWT)
Tough Power >850W – Channel Well (CWT) (PSH platform)
Tough Power <1000W – Channel Well (CWT) (PUC platform)

Thermaltake PSUs have a long-standing reputation of being average at best. They switched their OEM to Channel Well (CWT) for the Tough Power and later PurePower RX series, which have some good units. You need to know what you are buying when you get a Thermaltake.

Vantec
ION 350W/460W – Topower
ION2 460W – Topower
ION2+ 450W/500W/550W – Andyson

Xigmatek
<750W – Channel Well (CWT) (PSH platform)
≥1000W – Channel Well (CWT) (PUC platform)

Xigmatek (known for its CPU coolers) are new to selling PSUs. They use well-respected Channel Well (CWT) platforms for their products.

XFX
XFX-650w – Seasonic

Zalman
ZM360B-APS – FSP?
>500W ZM units – FSP
ZM-500 – FSP
ZM-600 – FSP
ZM-750 – FSP
ZM-850 – Enhance
ZM-1000 – Enhance

SeaSonic. Mix of the M12D and TruePower Trio - a weird hybrid design.

Delta, of course.

Older Seasonic S12II design I think for the HX450, and a Seasonic S12 for the TX650.

That's because your computer is a 200-250W computer
Better not to push your PSU too far! And there are things about the PSU which you can't gauge, especially ripple suppression, that can wear down your components without you realizing.

Nope, those are different PSUs. Plus ABS is not an OEM.
