Reviews : A-Power 480-Watt 20/24-Pin ATX power supply

OH NO! IT KILLED YOUR MOTHERBOARD!! Stay away from this one. I replaced one of these for a neighbor recently. For my neighbor, it died on her after about an hour of use.

This power supply is not UL listed. With my own eyes, I did not see a UL sticker on it. As shown below, under the "Additional information" section, you'll find this phrase: "This power supply has no regulatory approvals". The manufacturer also states "Short circuit protection on all outputs". I've uploaded a picture of it. The fuse did NOT blow in my neighbors. Instead, it fried her motherboad.

computergeeks.com carried it for a little while. Below is the copy of their page on it.
