Could you tell who built it? Delta, perhaps, from the fan?

This unit is about as close to the Seasonic design as it gets from the components, components location,to the cap specs and brands

Compare to the :

BTW the fan is typical Seasonic.

Yes, I'm pretty sure that one is a Seasonic

Just a reminder of what Corsair claims:

Quote:
Again it does not matter who we use to Build the PSU's they are our designs internally and are not a copy of the subcontractors we use to build the units so it make no difference who we use to assemble the PSU. We may use their PCB but the components will be different internally. Also verified in that same article if read the whole article.

I am pretty sure it is Seasonic, but since Corsair didn't confirm this, I decided not to post.

Seasonic always use that yellow text for the parts on the PCB. Most others have white text.

Again, Corsair's point which is forget about the factory but look at the design is the superior point even though they are wrong about this being their design.

Two points should be considerd:

1 That there was talk that CWT was manufacturing in different factories or subcontracting some of their orders, which was of the same quality.


2 I don't think but don't know if Seasonic subcontracts either. Yet if you compare this design and bulid quality to Seasonic it is the same. I think the only difference is that Seasonic's top designs put the secondary transitors on the solder side of the PCB and are multiple 12V rail even though they state only one 12V rail in their advertising.
