I read that non-branded Chinese manufactured power supply units were a false economy as when they go they can spike the main board & take it with it. But trying to find a branded replacement that has a standard backplate but is shorter bodied to fit my micro-ATX case is proving very difficult. I thought they'd all be moving towards miniaturisation?
My local computer shop thought all power supplies could go branded or non-branded, but I thought they had a fail safe against over voltage?
What do you reckon?
