I'm just glad we're not in Australia/New Zealand, even though Austrian prices bring tears to my eyes on a regular basis, just like the availability here. Most online-shops have unreliable stock-numbers because they don't keep more expensive parts, such as most PSUs, most GPUs and CPUs in stock and only order those parts from their supplier when necessary :rolleyes:

Hi Guys, we sent the 2nd sample is because the first unit, being early production run in a small batch, our factory accidentally mixed in a wrong part. Some were ok, some not. We have since rectified this issue. Sorry.

Is this a toroidal choke across primary/secondary?:

Thanks for the explanation! Makes sense, and should be forgivable in most users' minds.

Asking another difficult question: Even though the error doesn't actually break anything (just somewhat lessens the awesomeness of the unit), is it grounds for a return? If so, do you know the serial numbers of the affected units?

Personally, going by what Wolfie described, I'd be perfectly content with his unit #1 and those like it.

That's a leakage inductance coil for the LLC converter... I might be horribly off, though.

10/10 for performance, just not sure i'd give it 10 for value.

The EVGA has gone on sale and has a $30 MIR now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-063-_-Product

Price quibbles aside, we can agree the Prime lives up to the Seasonic reputation for quality.

I've wanted one of these since Easter, when I was one of the winners in the Seasonic Easter Game contest. Unfortunately, all I won was a goody bag (marketing stuff, mini-screwdriver, LED keychain, Prime velcro wire ties, and Prime gummy bears! But no power supply). Actually the power supply winners received existing platinum and gold units, not titanium Prime units. So I guess I'll just have to buy one for my next build. Excellent review - 10/10 and 10 yr warranty, that's a very TENacious adversary, the new "gold standard" for titanium power supplies, so to speak...

Super good :)

could you double check the cable without capacitor??

Oklahoma Wolf 08-15-2016 08:48 PM

The cables don't have capacitors.

@Oklahoma Wolf

I wonder how this unit got a perfect 10 with those deviations in the transient tests. Yeah, i know they're all in spec but all top of the line units have been producing perfect lines for years now. To be honest, i feel like i've just read a paid review. I'm a bit disappointed...
