-- Aurora 350W PSU
-- Price: ~ $59.95 USD

Here are some actual readings right off the motherboard:

Now that you know just about everything about this PSU, let's see it in action.


In conclusion, I think this is a unit that will provide years of service to whomever buys one. I had this PSU in one of my cases for a good amount of time and it was a strong performer.

A couple of things to note, I shorted one of the power cables to the case and the power supply shut down like it was supposed to and woke back up a few minutes later. I tested the voltage rails under load and everyone of them was within +/- .2 volts, I had a case load of fans and lighting.

Additionally, the case / enclosure of this PSU is well finished and wouldn't be an eye-sore in a well modded case. There is very little to complain about this model.

I would like to thank Dave Williamson of Quiet PC for providing the PSU for review.

Pros:

  • 120mm blue lighted fan
  • Very solid construction
  • Very good short protection
  • Good looking enclosure

Cons:

  • Fan only comes in 1 color
  • Would be nice to have an on / off switch for the LED's
