While Mushkin is traditionally a high performance memory manufacturer they also have several power supplies in their lineup. Today we take a look at the Mushkin HP-580AP which offers 580W of power output as the name suggests. For a sub $100 price you get sleeved cables, a modular design and Rail Fusion which keeps your system stable, even if you go beyond the rated maximum load.

probably the same manufacturer. a lot of times one manufacturer will make units for more than one company.

I'm sorta dissapointed... it doesnt state the continous amperage...

Eg, my one has 600W Continuous, whist 700W max, that means it can be classified as a 700W PSU.
thats what the mfgr puts on it.. it's usually bs

@w1zz

Why didn't you show the "Accessories & Cables" box that comes within the actual box ? It's a pretty neat idea imo.

Top notch review as always W1zzard. One thing though, while I love the "modular" (read: VersaPlug) design, Im a little disappointed in the overall quality and some things that arent needed. I was hoping for a better showing from Mushkin and their PSU's. Seems corsair/seasonic and be quiet make some of the best psus around (of course PC P&C)
