    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.

    Right. But when you're dealing with a hand assembly process in a dirty Chinese factory, you create your own crap shoot.

    There are solutions that are better assembled from reputable Taiwan or...

    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.

    Also, the failure rate of a horizontally...

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

    I know, I know... Some people would want to save that $10. I cringe when I'm in meetings and upper...

    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...

    To get better reviews.

    Look at the reviews of the RMx and then the RM. They literally only shaved 5mV of ripple off by putting caps in the cables. A completely indiscernible amount. But at the...

    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.

    Not with that PWM controller. Besides, you don't pass any of the efficiency tests if you're a 230V only product.

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

    Nope. Nobody's noticed because the PSU is never at that low of a load (assuming they don't buy the 850W for a PC that only needs 120W!).

    When modern standby kicks in, it's only for a second, so...

    Yep. Typo. Fixed it.



    It's your power supply. It's garbage. The PWM controller is seeing the switch from one shape sine-wave to another and it's thinking it's a fault.

    Buy a quality PSU.

    Also: You shouldnt have Your UPS plugged into a "power regulator" if your UPS has AVR (would be redundant).
