When I look at the unit on the box and see the actual unit, I'm kinda puzzled...
What the heck were they thinking with TAHT?!

Why does the unit on the box so much look like a Seasonic X-Series?

Yeah, especially since the people in the US seem to prefer 750W units - here in Germany it's 500W units...

If that's the case, why bother with this at all and implment a semi fanless cooling system and not an active one?
Or at least put a switch on the unit with 'fan always on' mode as default.

That's the way those PSU calculators work. They use the worst case scenario numbers on every device, hence a little too much wattage.

I'd try something around 2 2200F or 3300F ones, the same types used in PSUs.
Something like Teapo SC or maybe NCC KY or similar

They are like 2-3% more efficient.
With 550W that's about -> 550W/100*2 (or 3)= 11-16,5W. But that unit would cost about 50% (well, at least 25%) more.
Not really worth it.

With 750W it's...

far too few connectors for a 1500W unit. Just 4 PCIe cable connectors?
And also just 4 peripherial connectors. SRYSLY?! Are you kidding me?
