Yes it is from MicroCenter. I was in a pinch in terms of budget and decided to cut some corners and go with this PSU

The NZXT Hale 82 V2 uses the same platform https://www.overclock.net/forum/31-p...ale-82-v2.html
Even if the PSU is not the problem its still a rubbish PSU that should be replaced
Edit: this is what you have right? this is the one based on the High Power Element Smart from what i understand
That is the one I purchased. As my answer above states, money was a concern and some compromises had to be made. The replacement will most likely be this model.
What is you opinion on this one?
