    The chinese manufacturer Sansun isn't too well known yet, because they are a rather new company. If they continue delivering such solid products, I'm sure that this will change in no time.
    For a price for which you often get only a plain and unsleeved power supply, Sansun is giving you dual 12V rails and a modularity feature which is usually found only on much more expensive PSUs. All cables are sleeved as well which helps keep your case look clean. Also the important qualities of a PSU like voltage stability and fan noise look good.

    I'm just curious about the whole thing... :laugh:

    But I'm a very curious person... I enjoy knowing how everything works :toast:

    more specificly, how you hooked it up to create a load.. looks pretty cool.

    the load resistors are just resistors .. one end to ground other end to +12v for example.. they create a shitload of heat, thats what the fan on the right is for

    yeah i didnt feel like spending a thousand bucks for a psu load tester (i asked a psu mfgr at cebit last year)

    btw the load setup isnt used for the psu voltage stability test because i think only a real system can put the right dynamic loads on a psu.
