Default levicom 550W PSU?

Check this baby out. Fancy looks, 550W, and very reasonably priced at 85 euro. It even has a dedicated S-ATA dongle!

Has anyone seen a review of this puppy? Can't find any with google.

globalwin also has a 550W PSU out, also with SATA power connectors, pretty flashy:

the fact that I barely trust a 400+W PSU under 100 let alone one of 500+W

And the EMI of one of those has got to be horrible.

afaik the EMI would be determined by a global organisation, and no company can release a product without a valid certification of compliance...

My QTek 550W costed 55. It has a very stable 5 & 12V line and except of the lack of a power switch on the back i can't find anyting wrong with it.

what would be a "acceptable" way to do this?

the P4 stresses the 12v

My Q-Tek 550W's 12V line sucks atm, when vcore is about 1,9V, my 12 V line drops to about 11,51:grum:
