    GPU fans last longer than most case fans as ball bearing fans or sealed fluid bearings are far more common while most case fans are still plain old sleeve bearings or rifle bearings.

    As for SSD...

    I wouldn't suggest anyone buying a modern computer to get one without an SSD. Between longevity and the reduction in boot times, it's just not worth it to consider a mechanical drive.

    On a cheap OEM PC (Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc) it's usually the hard drive. After that you run into fans and then rather quickly it's PSU after that.

    This is mostly done because the average consumer...

    Seasonic will fix it, but the turn-over time is going to be long most likely. There are still huge shipping delays across the board and PSUs are still in somewhat limited supply.

    That was my initial thought, but I figured it had to be something more than that.

    If not, I vote it as one of the stupidest marketing bulletpoints only passed up by every "Strong Single 12v Rail"...

    Coil Whine is also a gamble. Just because one unit has it doesn't mean the next will. The power from your grid can also effect the coil whine levels.

    Just a heads up Ashiekh, but you generally cannot directly compare thermal conductivity ratings between different manufacturers as they are not all measuring to the same standard.

    Perhaps Solytech sold their designs off to another company to make? Definitely odd, but adds more of a reason to avoid them in the future, that's for sure.

    MWE Gold 650 & TX 650M v2.

    While I wouldn't go as far as saying the MWE Gold is mediocre but it's definitely not in the same league as the TX650M v2 in terms of electrical performance.
