Is this PSU any good at all?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!


I scored myself an absolute bargain of a case, a Cronus 63604 Micro ATX case, which has USB 3.0, an included 80mm and a '500W' PSU, for £21 brand new. However, admittedly I cannot find the manufacturer of this case.

 

I managed to find an image of the inside of the case and noticed the PSU has a brand logo on it much to my surprise. I found out who they are and the brand goes by the name of 'Space power'. I found a few listings of the particularly unit on Ebay. They on average sell for £8, and that is hugely concerning. I found a listing which provides some more details on the unit: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/sis.html?_itemId=null&_nkw=ATX+Power+supply+500W+Max+Output+Switching+PSU+Space+Power+MP+500AT+PLUS&_trksid=p2047675.m4100.l9146

 

If anyone knows anything about this unit. Please do tell me as I am only hoping it is enough for a Q6600 and a 8800GT (I will use an molex to 6 pin adaptor for that) and if so that is awesome Thank you massively in advance for any information you might have on this unit! :D

It doesn't even have a PCIe connector... now why would a 500 watt PSU not have a PCIe connector o.O 

 

That's basically 1 way to tell that it's junk, lol. Though it does stop it from frying any GPU's.

It has to add up all the rails to reach 500W, it claims 28A on 12V, and it can only run on 230V.

Nope nope nope

eh, I wouldn't write it off completely.

 

If it survives POST then the next step of course is the AIDA64 + Furmark load explode test.

Does that seriously say "Space Power"?

 

Is that why Elon Musk gave Falcon Heavy a 50/50 chance of blowing up?

All PSUs are rated that way though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ If it can do 500 watts at some combination of different loads from different voltages, then it is a 500W unit. Gamers can only use about ~350W of that due to +12V rating, but total power is just the most possible watts you can get from it.

I actually did some research into who manafactures that PSU. as Space Power unsurprisingly has no presence online. I found two results, and from them I am indicated to think it is a EZCool unit, and EZCool being again a fake brand possibly owned by a real OEM company called JSP-Tech. I am going to dig about abit and see if they have a good reputation and if this unit is indeed by them :D

Well, erm, big plot twist. The case didn't actually come with a PSU, despite the listing having quite clearly stated it comes with a 500W PSU. Not a massive surprise, but I am awaiting there reply on the issue, so wish me luck :D
