    "We still canít recommend a power supply like the Auriga unit tested here due to its poor voltage regulation, questionable component selection, and dated 5V heavy design Ė problems that it shares with all other cheap generic units. "


    Yep.
    Avoid the lot and buy quality.
    wipe your paws.

    A nice bit of entertainment

    (No8) "The power supply was also not able to make it up to 580W. It didnít even make it to 530W. After a couple of minutes at 350W load it blew up, and the explosion was quite spectacular Ė one of the biggest Iíve seen for a while now."


    But I thought he was a little hard on the Auriga (No7)
