Sparkle 400w PSU - seems like a really good price?


I was browsing through ZZF and ran across this PSU - seems like a pretty hot deal to me.. Thought about getting one so I could mod it with sleeving and such..

Here's a link

Any Sparkle or Fortron PSU is a great deal. Inexpensive yet quite capable of putting out much more than their listed wattage. I wouldn't be surprised if that unit can do 500W at peak.

I know they are good PSU's.. I already have a PCP&C so I don't need it, but at the same time, it seemed like a good price..

You might want to check eBay ... there seem to be a lot of those PSUs lately for a lot less than that. Look for Fortron, Sparkle, or Emacs. I know there are some Emacs 400W PSUs there right now for $9.99.

Zippy/Emacs is about the only brand I would consider over Fortron/Sparkle, but they get mighty costly in the higher watt models. They mostly cater to the server and workstation markets.
