The one you listed is probably over rated. I doubt there would be any PSUs with 50A on the 12v rails for so cheap.
From their site: "Chiefmax has done it again!!! This new power supply model sports a 24 pin motherboard power connector while maintaining backwards compatibility with 20 pin configurations"

HAHAHA, wow, so Chiefmax came up with that innovative new design?

Why would you spend that much on a 300w unit when you could have gotten that PC power and cooling 750w which is a great unit for $40?

I used one pf Phaderus'es most hated power supplies, the Blue Star 680w. It smelled horrible and sparked, but not as much as when I LIT IT ON FIRE after all the stuff Phaderus told me.

Even the Blue Star/Echostar PSUs have separate coils for the +12V/+5V and +3.3V/+5VSB regulation. This uses one coil for all of them. I've never seen that before. That qualifies as epic failure of the first degree.

It's not a standard ATX psu, I need one that is similair to the one the case came with so it will fit.

So under 12V rail load it also drops the voltages of 5V and +3.3V? Funny now I will get the BSOD WHILE my case and CPU fans start getting too little voltage!

I have. Theirs been like 30 different people asking about PSU's. I was thinking it was the OP saying he ordered a 300w when he originially wanted a 600w. I didn't expect people to thread hijack.
