5v is doable in some cases, but it's highly dependent fan to fan.

ADDA doesn't generally optimize their fans for low speed or quiet operations.

While some other budget units might be more expensive, I don't think anyone wants those Junfu caps in their system. Even if they bumped the price by $5 it'd be a worthy investment to have Teapo or...

What? Sorry, but not hardly. By far most computer cases support bottom mounted PSUs, not top. So by far most PSUs draw their air from the "cool" exterior of the case and not the warm interior.

It's not always about how well it will run, but how well it is running.

Trust me, I've seen plenty of bargain bin units that were 5/6/7 years old that I wouldn't trust to run in spec normally.

@Spectre / Paul,

How come you guys didn't do any internal analysis? I'd be very interested to see what shape the caps are in as well as if there are any obvious signs of why the unit wasn't able...

Seasonic has to put more on the line because they're a smaller OEM and have a retail arm to worry about.

On the topic of the unit; it reminds me a lot of the Silverstone Nightjar from a few years back; it was also a ~$200 / 500w unit, but 80+ Silver with decent but not amazing performance.
