    Depends on the manufacturer. Smaller companies like Seasonic, Andyson and Super Flower outsource PCBA assembly. Larger companies like CWT, Great Wall, etc. do everything in house.

    Is this essentially the fully modular version of the GX1?

    Got to admit I appreciate Thermaltake's new naming. So much better than just naminger everything "SMART" or "TOUGHPOWER".

    It's not the cost of oil. It's the production process.

    It's surprising how little automation there is in Chinese factories.

    If we had more automation, we wouldn't need China so much.

    No. Sleeve bearing fans in PSUs suck. The problem is, they start making noise after the warranty is up, so you don't hear many complaints about it.

    Well, there is no white RM650x because it would only be $10 less retail than the 750W.

    The problem is, when you sell a FULL RANGE product, the power cord has to be able to support FULL RANGE.

    So even if 230V mains is typical, if it can drop to 120V for whatever reason, the cord has...

    Why not just get a cable kit for your RM650x? Seems like a waste to replace a perfectly good PSU just because you don't like the cables.

    No reason an EVGA "B" series wouldn't work if a "N" or "W" works in its place. Probably just a faulty PSU.
