    yeah I agree, they nailed it with that one. only thing is, very few people will spend that money on a 520W unit, even if it is amazing. just the way it is.

    They make a lot of great power supplies, including a load for other companies! I would rather buy from seasonic directly that one of hteir partners.

    I prefer the flat cables to the sleeved ones, they t ake up less space, especially in a mini itx case.

    on page 6:
    “The large fan maintains good temperatures throughout, rising to a 15c above ambient intake threshold at full load”

    What large fan?
