Well I CAN tell you its nice and heavy, so that's a plus. Cables look nice also, should be easy to keep the case clutter free. We'll soon see...

Fortron Source is a large manufacturer that previously cattered to the OEM crowd with high-quality power supplies that would easily outlive the OEM PC's 3-year warranty or even a 5-year extended warranty.

Sparkle Power was the retail brand associated with Fortron Source back then. Now you can buy either brand and get the same thing.

Fortron has also made a lot of the power supplies included with Inwin cases (highly regarded) and many of Aopen's power supplies as well.

Zalman uses Fortron Source units as a basis for their ultra-quiet power supplies, and the most expensive maker, PC Power & Cooling, used Fortron Source for a long time before they went to completely custom units.

They've always been better than Antec, that should tell you something.
