    There's plenty of enthusiast PSUs, but more competition doesn't hurt the consumer. It all depends if the price is right :)

    Aesthetically it doesn't do much for me, but if the price is right and Bit-Tech give it a good review, then great.

    Every single PSU i've ever replaced for people have been FSP (do a little bit around my village, so only replaced 7. Still 7/7 beng FSP). Fingers crossed the new series works better :/

    Self manufacturing could lead to some pretty decent prices, if they can live up to their claims and if the price is right then its gotta be worth a shot.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again:

    Enlargeable pictures please. I'd like to be able to properly see that 'granite touch finish'.

    Not sure I'd be that keen on it but I'll look forward to a review. Don't think it will steal Seasonic's place in my heart :)

    If their "'granite-touch' finish" is anything like others I've met (out side PC markets) then it'll be your standard anti-graphite paint...

    More competition is usually a good thing, but it is beginning to get a bit silly...

    What's with all the hate for Fortron?

    I haven't used them lately (went with a modular Corsair, which is re-badged something-else back when I felt the need to upgrade) but my first build (early 2000's) was quickly replaced with a Fortron Source Power unit; great efficiency and one of the few bang-for-buck units with adjustable pots...back when we needed such for BH-5 RAM voltage and what-not. It endured many upgrades and unspeakable torture that blew some other units (I used to daisy-chain with a phase changer in my younger years). That thing is STILL plugging away in my mother's computer. Their quality may have gone down in general (or may be down to each design) but they have made some excellent products. That said, I do recall when they started making flashier units (that was all the rage for a while) that some of those products were not of the same quality. After that, I kind of lost touch with the market up until I bought my Corsair.

    It's nice to see them back in the game in typical style from that unit I loved: Less flash; just muscle.

    I brought a 600w FSP Aurum PSU one week before. I used it to build a AMD PC system.
    CPU: amd phenom ii x6
    board: gigabyte GA-880G-UD3H
    Harddrive: WD1002FAEX
    VGA: XFX HD695A-CNFC (soft-moded..)

    I didn't try to overclock it, and i didn't play any hardcore game on it yet.
    This build is aim for photoshop CS5 workstation for my sister. (and my late night gaming XD)
    I may post some comment again later on.
