Well ES PSUs would still, technically, be the property of the company if they are still in business. The unreleased ones are even murkier for companies still in business. The stuff from defunct companies could maybe be moved but they have all been sitting. The electrolytics will probably all need to be replaced which would kill their originality.

I would say the PSUs (ATX-GES) for the Tyan Thunder k7. They're really really rare these days and only a few manufacturers made them.

Hmm :-\ :(

Not too concerned with the electrolytics. Prefer keeping items as original as possible.

Are you even able to divulge or discuss the ESes and what they are? :(

I'd have to look to know exact models but there are ES's in my storage space by Enermax, SilverPower (well not an ES they just never released the product), BFG, Topower, GreatWall, AcBel, and Antec that I remember off the top of my head. There are a few other boxes of more further back.

i haven't seen many ES Power Supplies online, maybe i'm missing something

so this is pretty cool to hear about to be honest
