Default How SilverStone(Impervo) PSU's are made!

Anyone who has a little bit of knowledge of PSU's knows that most PSU's are still mostly a hand made deal. This can result in sloppiness, errors, etc. Impervo is an OEM PSU maker based in Taiwan used by alot by SilverStone, but as well as others. Impervo, unlike most other PSU makers, they rely on a mostly robotic manufactoring system, this makes the BoM a little more expensive, but I think the results speak for themselves.

I can safely say the Impervo *currently* makes some of the best PSU's money can buy. Without further ado, heres a video showing some of the proccess that goes into making a SilverStone Zeus 1200W (ZM/ZU1200M) PSU.

I love SilverStone PSU's as they use most of my favourite OEM's. I <3 my Impervo built PSU's.

I dislike FSP.
