    I can't make out the last couple digits in the UL number so I can't tell who manufactures it :( better pictures here.

    Yeah, looks like a modular ver of corsair's.

    Anyone else have the corsair 850w? On the inside mine is covered almost halfway by a piece of plastic right under the fan. I haven no idea why it's there.

    it's to redirect air into the power supply.

    I like the design. And modularity. Now if I were to make a green themed rig, I'd get that PSU.

    A cooler looking version of the Corsair and PC Power and Cooling 850 Watt Power Supply with modular connectivity. I like it!

    It looks like E104405 to me. Seasonic?

    I thought it was E134406 at first, but I can find no UL number with "E1344XX".

    I have never seen Channelwell make a housing like that and almost if not all their power supply fans are bottom side and i'm not even sure if Seasonic is manufacturing for anybody anymore. one thing I really like is the grills on the fan and rear exhaust.

    I am curious who is making it?

    If someone buys one, post the UL number please.

    Pic 3 is a shot of the product packaging. :)

    ...we find its UL certification mark, the above point No. E104405-generation plant is the Rhine. This means that XFX is M12D 850 power supply is not "TPN" 850 a. XFX quite a high starting point.

    Source: itocp.com (Thanks acid888*)

    And when you search "E104405" in the UL database it comes up with Seasonic as the manufacturer, so it sounds like XFX are ready to contend with Corsair and these should be some very nice PSUs
