THE LAST LINked PSU was talked about in some other forum and everone was fully loading it and the rails were stable.

What do you guys think. Will the run fine but crap out in 6 months or constant usage?

EDIT*

Do you think they will run a TEC. 15.1 V @ 25A. So the PSU will dip down to 11 or so = 20 Amps.

Some one on the forums ran a 226w tec with junky POWMAX 400w I bought one but it trips when i try to power the TEC.

What did you do you mean they were "fully loading" it? That would mean 500W for that PSU. How did they measure the watts or amps? Or did they simply connect it to a computer and run a test pogram, which probably only half loaded it? I noticed that there are no numbers under the CSA, UL, and FCC certification marks, making it impossible to verify the information and leading me to believe that the unit never was certified.
