Below we list all power supply models that we discovered that carry, explicitly or implicitly, information that they have 80 Plus certification, when in fact they don't. We double checked this information with Ecos Consulting, the company behind the 80 Plus certification, before publishing it here.

  • Coolmax ZP-750B: The manufacturer lists this model as having 80 Plus Bronze certification, but it doesn't.
  • Coolmax ZP-850B: The manufacturer lists this model as having 80 Plus Bronze certification, but it doesn't.
  • Coolmax ZP-1000B: The manufacturer lists this model as having 80 Plus Bronze certification, but it doesn't.
  • KMEX PG-500: The manufacturer lists this model as having 80 Plus standard certification, but it doesn't. The product box features an 80 Plus logo that is clearly a fake, as you can see in Figure 1.
  • KMEX PG-580: The manufacturer lists this model as having 80 Plus standard certification, but it doesn't. The product box features an 80 Plus logo that is clearly a fake, as you can see in Figure 1.
  • KMEX PG-650: The manufacturer lists this model as having 80 Plus standard certification, but it doesn't. The product box features an 80 Plus logo that is clearly a fake, as you can see in Figure 1.
