Thanks!

You're quite productive, you just put out the ATI 3870 review!
Good thing that you're clearing things up! Didn't know how to consider those PSUs. The "active PFC" sticker on the back of it looks exactly like the one on Mushkin PSUs...they must be both coming from the same place.

Good eyes. Mushkin's PSUs are also Topower-built. :thumb:

Thank you for the review. I wasn't sure what to make of these PSU and now I know to stay well away until they get their act together...

Thanks again.

Obviously I'm a little biased, but isn't that a little harsh? I mean, performance wise it's a good unit, right?

I agree. First of all let me point out that Jon works for BFG so yes he is a bit biased. :ph34r:

On the other hand, I think this PSU should warrant a looks by people with smaller cases. All in all it is a good little Topower unit. Just because it received a 3.5/5 rating doesn't mean that it is a bad PSU. It just means that there are some things that need a little more work.

Very Nice review, but i have found a typo!

In the introduction and accessories,

"This might be nitpicking but I wish that BGF had decided on one color of tie wraps since the included rainbow of colors would look a bit odd if used together inside of a case."
