Nice to see another Huntkey that's not a complete suckfest. A bit ripply, but they, it's within specs and the PSU doesn't explode.

Oh come on now, you can't give that an award. Where's the entertaining fireworks display?

Jokes aside, Huntkey power supplies aren't very common here. For a 600-650W power supply, we usually use the OCZ ZS 650W now. Before discovering them, we used 600W In Win Power Men (I can't remember the model off the top of my head, but Hardware Secrets did review one a while ago)

According to Huntkey, they are the largest PSU manufacturer in China, and focus mainly on their domestic market. I've seen their power supplies being sold in Australia and Brazil as well. In the US, the only presence they had was when they were the suppliers of the "Rocketfish" power supplies for Best Buy.

I so much don't like the use of yellow/green cables for a 12V line!
That colour combination is reserved for protective earth (PE), and should only be used for that!

Yes, but everyone does it.

You stated that there are no shunts.

But I followed the traces of the +12V on this picture and I see some big blop where the trace ends. But I don't have a good pic of the other side, so I can't say what it is. but it looks like some kind of resistor, a coil or something like that, from this perspective. Do you still have that unit to check it?

I don't have this unit anymore. However, as Travis Chen have already pointed out somewhere else, manufacturers can add OCP without the shunts, using a different technique that I don't recall how it works exactly...

Maybe you should change that passage in your article?

It's because I have a Huntkey X7 1200W and I know the efford they took to make a 6 rail unit out of it as every rail has its own protection chip. So I doubt that there will be a Huntkey unit with just one +12V rail...
