Software/BIOS voltage readings on consumer-level hardware are completely useless and should be ignored entirely.

I don't think the PSU is at fault here. Far from impossible, but less than probable...

That would probably be a taller order than the PSU tier list itself.

The problem here is that each manufacturer has numerous product lines, meant for different usage scenarios. If we were to limit...

I'm pretty sure Aris implied the timing has been deliberately thrown off by SF to make it seem like the hold up time is much longer. Well, at least to those who cannot test for it thoroughly enough.

Besides, Delta also uses Elite caps and with good reason. Taicons as well, rather than Teapos - again, with good reason.

It would, if you're up to swapping the connectors. Just pay attention to the positioning of the wires in the connectors and it should be just fine.

If you've never done it, there's tons of...

The fact that both 8-pin connectors fit the PSU modular board is a coincidence. There is a capacitor embedded in the cable near the (4+4)-pin end of it, and it's meant to provide additional ripple...

The original Leadex uses CapXons on the modular board right from the start, this is nothing new. It is EVGA's rendition of the platform that replaced them with NCC, mainly for marketing purposes.

It's a combination of the caps not being able to reach their rated specs (even when brand new, burned in) and wild differences between batches that made them infamous - especially GF, GL and KF...

I'm partial to the K65 because of the key mounting scheme. With the caps sitting on top of a flush keyboard cover, instead of being recessed into it, the keyboard should be much easier to clean.

Well, somewhat. The power rating depends on the power factor. And in general, a lower input voltage will mean a somewhat higher power factor.

In essence, while PF is not efficiency in the sense of...

So Seasonic basically release units under their own brand because:

a) It's a marketing move - people will associate "Seasonic" with "quality" so that "Seasonic OEM inside" means "quality inside"...
