A bit about Chieftec (Taken from Chieftecs website)
"Since being formed in 1990 the company Chieftec Industrial CO. Ltd has been based on the principles of flexibility, innovation and efficiency. Chieftec has ambitiously pursued the goal of perfection in case manufacturing, and quickly became the worldwide synonym for first class solutions in computer case field successfully.
One of Cheiftecs competitive advantages is through the understanding of current market and its demand to effectively anticipate and service its worldwide customers needs promptly.
At Cheiftec we are committed to providing superior quality products, and flexibility in meeting the demands of a fast changing market.
With increasing sales growth and expansion of their market share, in 1998 Cheiftec officially established a production factory in China where more than 6000 motivated employees are working daily to fulfil the requirements of global customers.
Chieftec has not only invested in facilities for assembly, but also in house with a talented R+D team to maintain the optimum quality control on all ranges of production.
At Cheiftec we will continue to strive for “keep doing it better”, not just staying ahead of the competition, but to keep bettering ourselves."
Personally, I used to know of Chieftec products – most notably their cases (back in 2003 or so), however since then their presence in the market seems to have slipped away. I was pleased to hear I was getting this Chieftec PSU to review, as I used to hold the brand in high regard – and as such have high expectations from them.
Today I will be previewing the Chieftec Nitro 850w PSU – it is rated as “80+ Bronze” which means it conforms to the 80+ efficiency standards.
