    It is. And transient response doesn't even play a part on how it can handle high transient loads. It's how you have the OCP and/or OPP set for those big spikes, because the voltages drop isn't...

    To state the obvious: You're going to see burnt contacts on the motherboard if you have poor conductivity or too much load.

    So either way you're probably looking at a faulty motherboard.

    Yeah. That's not a good reason to buy one over the other.

    Despite the bearing used, the fan is horribly loud due to the large hub and smaller blades.

    Performance wise, the Hydro G falls short...

    I didn't say that at all.

    The poor transient response is coming from the DC to DC (the +3.3V and +5V). Poor transient response from the DC to DC has nothing to do with the PSU's topology. It has...

    How do you figure?

    They're perfectly fine except for the +3.3V and +5V, which run off a DC to DC circuit. Has nothing to do with the +12V being LLC or DF or whatever. But regardless.... you're...

    Yes.

    Due to the tariffs, the CX and some other models sold in the US, are made in CWT's factory in Vietnam.

    And no, Vietnam does not smell worse than China.

    CX and CX-M are completely different PSUs internally.

    CX and the MWE V2 share the same topology (LLC w/ D2D), but the OEM's quality/capability is still an unknown.

    This is a great idea.

    Could just be a bad breaker.

    Yeah. That's a pretty shitty PSU.

    Back to the AVR: Pretty sure he doesn't need one. Get a better PSU and he definitely doesn't need one. :D

    Well, why do you have the AVR? What PSU do you have? Do you have a 230V only PSU and the mains voltage often drops below 190V?

    Get rid of the AVR.

    So the words of ONE INDIVIDUAL that responded to a post EIGHT YEARS AGO has you scared?

    He's talking about pretty old PSU designs. Designs used almost 20 years ago on PSUs that typically output...

    With the PC running, of course.

    Does you friend's PC have a spare Molex connector or even PCIe or CPU power connector? Just put the + and - probes in the +12V and ground of that connector and...

    Using an AVR or surge strip does not create a ground. AVR only bucks and boosts voltage and if the power strip isn't grounded, it's not going to be able to suppress surges because those are supposed...

    If the PSU was Seasonic built, it was the AX850. Either Jeremy didn't actually review it, or Tony hasn't migrated it over to the new database.

    I take it this is the newer 80 PLUS Silver version of the Vengeance?

    If so, it's superior to the CX-M. CX-M uses an older double forward topology. Vengeance Silver uses LLC.

    Don't look at me. I have nothing to do with this place anymore.

    That's because it cost a whooping 20 cents less to make the 750W version, so why bother?

    Voltage readings for power supply in HWINFO are completely useless unless it's getting actual data from the PSU itself (which in his case, is not.)

    You might as well use a random number...
