So I recently started having trouble with my PC. It's been randomly shutting down only to turn back on instantly and I am 99% sure it's because of a faulty power supply (that was never good to begin with) and even faultier power switch. My PC is a prebuilt from 2015 with a lowly GT 1030 that can run on bad PSUs but this one appears to have run its course. It's a LiteON 300W ATX PSU that came with the PC. Finding actual details about this particular PSU is tricky but the details are below and a similar product is linked below. The power supply I am eyeing is the ARESGAME 650W with details below as well. It's also ATX and will fit nicely into my case, but I am concerned about motherboard and power switch/usb compatibility. I've opened up my PC for cleaning and measuring and I noticed that the power switch and usb connectors appear to be attached to the PSU itself and they simply slot into the case (prebuilts are fun). Are there any compatibility issues or info I can find on the ARESGAME PSU to compare it to my current PSU? Amazon isn't terribly specific and this PSU and it is relatively new on the market.

looks like they trying to get name out there more to attract business at a time when buying quality PSU is hard, the cheap ones come out of the woodwork sa a "good"deal but for who? Only 3 year warranty? They don't even trust their own equipment to last?

According to this guy they are an OEM trying to release their own brand, no idea who though
this was a paid promotion

seems they do have a website - https://www.aresgame.com/SUPPORT.php - they can't spell quiet quite right - scroll down - https://www.aresgame.com/POWER.php?id=17&&name=AGV750 and its on every page.

I would have expected an info page, who are they?
amazon reviews - if you leave a good review they send you a free RGB mousepad... hmm, I wonder why they getting so many good reviews?

If you need a budget model that is decent quality try this for a similar price-

i went on a hunt and found they have a bunch of youtubers make videos that all seemed to hit same points but none actually test PSU for an extended time. I feel they made a push just before xmas. I wish some of the big channels would look at the low end brands and expose them for what they are to a larger audience.

Its not the worst i found out there, some only have a 1 year warranty and I wouldn't even consider a PSU unless its got 5 years on it, as they clearly don't trust it to last. And if they don't, why should you?

Another name to avoid

Cheap isn't good in PSU.
