Great for you to put all of that information in one place. Definitely going to be a link on my page.

But I do need to point out that not every UL number points to the actual manufacturer. In some cases, the "rebrander" will pay for their own UL.

For example, there are a number of Antec power supplies out there that have a UL number registered under Antec (E176105) although we all know Antec doesn't actually manufacture anything. The same is true with PC Power and Cooling (E131500).

This list was copied from Jonny GURU. We always recommend linking to the original source to get the most updated information available.

It is really a shame how people copy and paste a lot on the internet without mentioning the source, Jonny spent a lot of time putting this list together.

Cheers,
Gabriel.

Sorry for digging this up. Just want to say this has been one of the most worthy article I've read over the years. Thanks to this site and Johnny Guru!

I see the article has been updated. I presume that's mainly the last page added, as I doubt the following spelling mistake would have last almost 4 years, without having been spotted:

Quote:
black and wire wires!
I think it should be white wires, wire wires makes no sense. This line can be found in the description of Figure 18, on the last page.

Regards,
Korot

Seems to be a little to rather outdated.

As far as i know HEC doesn't manufacture PSUs for Antec for a long time.
The one I know of were almost 10 years ago.

So some things are acurate, some things outdated, the actual Aerocool lineup is manufactured by HEC and Antec has some Units that are built by Delta Electronics.

Every 'PSU real manufacturer list' I've seen on the internet seems to be outdated.
