    Aerocool released its Strike-X high-end PSU series. It spans across a wide price range, starting with an 80 Plus Bronze-compliant 500W and 600W models, 80 Plus Silver-compliant 800W model, and the top of the line 1100W 80 Plus Gold one. All four feature modular cabling, and a racy red+black casing that's designed for gaming PCs. Compliant with ATX 12V 2.3 and EPS 12V 2.92, Strike-X PSUs feature active PFC, single 12V rail design, OCP, OVP, OPP, OTP, and SCP.

    Reminds me of the 'X' in Xigmatek.

    Id be interested to know who makes their PSUs. They make good case fans and fan controllers and some other junk. but i wouldnt trust their PSUs this early on.

    Nice prices, horrible looks. Here's hoping crmaris will review the 500/600W one! :)

    What a dumb design blocking airflow for not even good looks that most will not even see.

    Aerocool thus far used three OEMs, CWT (very good but not great), HEC (good enough) and Andyson (either good or bad). The Strike-X are made by Andyson.

    Ive heard about CWT - I think they make the Corsair CX system builder models (and possibly some low wattage Antecs) Never heard of Andyson. but I think its safe to say, these PSUs will be shit lol

    Don't know when it was last updated though. It's a bit of hit and miss with them, but they can be good.

    And these units will probably not be top performers, but they are not priced as such either. They could be decent, and I want reviews. :)

    EDIT: Looking here it seems like they will all be from Andyson.

    CWT makes other Corsair PSUs too. If it wasn't by Seasonic or recently Flextronics, then it's CWT.

    Here's a review of an Andyson-made PSU (Topower 1000W).
