Default Woot PSU is in.

Well I got my power supply in today from direct Canada.

I was looking for a decent budget PSU and from the reviews I have read the Nmedia MP-500 sounded like a good budget PSU.

I got it from DC for $49.99 + $9.99 shipping and GST.

If what they say is true about the weight of the a PSU representing the quality, this is a heavy PSU.

I have also heard of quite a few switches being broken.

Our nMedia rep assures me that they are aware of the situation and are working to fix it in their new PSU revisions.

I'll be testing it on my next day off. I have to test a couple of mother boards and processors.

Yeah it's a sweet looking PSU. I have a nice UV Yellow sleeve kit for the reset of the wires to match my DFI Ultra-D

I'll let everyone Know how it fairs out this weekend.
