Riotoro Builder 500w review

For £38, you get DC to DC, decent ripple and voltage regulation and looks nice and all of the caps on the secondary side is Teapo (aka cap are decent enough for this unit)

Main issues with this unit that there's a Capxon capacitor as the main filter and has a sleeve bearing fan.

It's a better unit than most budget EVGA or Cooler Master power supplies and is a decent power supply for low-mid range builds or replacing your psu in your prebuild desktop.

Or you just get a Corsair CX450M for 10 squid more.

Semi modular, Bronze rated (instead of white), 5 years of warranty (instead of 3)

Yes but for £38, the Riotoro is unbeatable. lol
