Scythe launched two new lines of power supply units in its home country, Japan, the Solid Power Bronze and Solid Power Gold. As the names might suggest, models of these lines are 80 Plus Bronze and 80 Plus Gold certified, respectively. These PSUs are designed to have high cost-performance ratios, and offer power capacities typically needed by today's gaming PCs. The Solid Power Bronze series includes 550W and 650W models, while the Solid Power Gold series includes 500W and 600W models.

Both lines use identical-looking bodies, measuring W150 x D140 x H86 mm, with fixed cabling, and cooled by 120 mm silent fans. Apart from 24-pin ATX and 4+4-pin EPS, the Solid Power Bronze 550W includes two 6+2-pin PCIe, one FDD power, three Molex, and six SATA power; the 650W variant has six Molex connectors, and eight SATA power connectors, instead. The Solid Power Gold 500W and 600W, apart from 24-pin ATX and 4+4-pin EPS, offer two PCIe 6+2-pin, six Molex, and six SATA power connectors.

It's either a Sirtec, Enhance, or ATNG made PSU. There's no info yet. Maybe a new OEM altogether.

It could be any OEM.
While the quality of Scythe PSU is particularly unspectacular, they are a) dirt cheap and b) silent, which i like.
