    This may be a candidate for a sticky...

    Anyway, here is a tool to help you determine who really made the PSU that you have. Many power supplies are rebadged by case manufacturers, and you could be getting a total piece of junk with your case.

    As any experienced builder will tell you, the power supply is one of the most important components of your build. A power supply that goes bad and allows 120 volts to hit your board will take the rest of your machine with it.

    So here is how you tell: Find the UL label on the sticker. On that label, you should find a 5 or 6 digit number, beginning with the letter E.

    Go to this website: http://database.ul.com/cgi-bin/XYV/template/LISEXT/1FRAME/gfilenbr.html

    Plug that number in and it will tell you who the manufacturer is. (y)
