PRIME Ultra 650 Titanium

As always, the first stop on this page is at the fan. Though I have an inherent distrust of anything not ball bearing these days, Seasonic has us covered with that crazy long 12 year warranty.

I forgot to get a full shot of the PCB for you, but the soldering is excellent. Four FDMS015N04Bs handle the 12V output for this unit..
