Just a quick follow-up. The guys at 80 Plus replied us that in fact this power supply carries a fake 80 Plus Bronze badge. They contacted Aerocool, which in turn removed the badge from their website, however the product box and label still carry the fake 80 Plus Bronze logo.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

Updated 10/05/2010: After we published this review, Aerocool sent this power supply to 80 Plus, and it got their 80 Plus Bronze certification. Therefore, we removed the information that this unit carries a fake 80 Plus badge from this review.
