    Johnnyguru always makes me laugh with his reviews especially when reviewing cheap nesty psu's that often come bundled in pre built machines like the emachines

    In this case it's a Bestec psu which has a tendancy to give your mobo up to 12v on the 5v rail and fry it despite continuing to work so will fry your replacement mobo as well.
