If you like black and shiny, then I’d suggest you pay close attention to this review; because today we are looking at the HEC Group ACE 580UB ATX power supply. This is a 580W ATX power supply from the HEC Group that sports a very shiny black finish.

The HEC Group was founded in 1979, Wei Shun was manufacturing rim covers of automobiles. After acquiring know-how for PC Cases in 1991, Wei Shun has been transformed. You might be familiar with the PC cases that they have been producing since then are under the brand name of "COMPUCASE".

Before I show you this shining black power supply unit, we will go over the stats as taken from their web site.
