I think their math is a little off, I wouldn't trust that thing over my dell 305W unit from 2003 (which has 2x 20A 12v+ rails!)

Heres a review i think, it's not in english and the codegen site doesn't list any unit above 550w

wow... hope no one buys that...

That will do wonders for Codegen and their reputation in the PSU market.

Double typo on their part? Looks almost like 10-15 year old tech in the pic. I remember the Super Power logo from a rig I had 9 years ago.

regardless of what year it is actually from, it's still rated about 900W over what It can actually supply

the most extreme case of over-rating i've ever seen
check it out, can only supply up to ~450W DC or a little over 600W at the wall and the voltage on the rails deteriorate

and looking at the article, dated 5/16/2010 so it's from this year!
