Default XG Vortec 500W Power Supply

The Vortec 500W is a great looking power supply with enough juice to power even most demanding hardware. The sleek and stylish blue coloured aluminium housing looks great with the sleeved power cables. Besides that, I wished that the Vortec 500W came with a 24-pin power connector (just like the ModStream) and maybe another 6-pins PCI-E power connector. Priced at just $90, the Vortec 500W has a very strong place in the power supply market. If you’re a gamer or looking for the right hardware for your case mod project, the Vortec 500W power supply should be the right choice for you!

The Thermaltake 420Watts has trim pots. After a quarter turn on the 5 and 12 V rails, it idles at 12.4 and load at 11.98; it was 11.98 and 11.50 prior. Compared the loads with OCZ Powerstream 420 using P4 2.8E @3.57 GHz 255 FSB, TT is holding okay. It wasn't Prime95 stable before the adjustment, now it is.

To recommend a $90 PSU that holds on to the low end 12 volt rail with only 20-pin connector in 2005, it's no more than saying every free sample is good with no pun intended.

I should be grateful with my Rosewill 450 Watts $30 PSU having similar results and kick myself for spending $90 on the OCZ Powerstream. uke:
