It is unusual to hear of a Chinese company respecting intellectual property rights. You must be an important customer for them to respect yours.

It required an i7 860 OC'd to 4GHz. And the PSU was semi enclosed in those days. I figure it was barely enough too trigger the thermocouple, and once it had cooled off, the fan stopped. One of those...

My Antec TPN 750 seems to get down to a few hundred RPM -- maybe 1/3 to 1/4 of a 1200 RPM fan. I suppose that would satisfy the need for silence as well as a hybrid operating in fanless mode, while...

I moved up from the paperclip trick to a dedicated socket with jumper. But all you need to do is plug in a fan to see if the PSU works. Actually, Seasonic recommends this maneuver.

I wonder why we are still seeing 20+4 pin ATX connectors and 4+4 pin EPS/ATX12V connectors on PSU's. Are there still motherboards with 20-pin ATX connectors?

I'm glad I got a Truepower New Blue in late 2009. It was not terribly expensive then and that incarnation was semi-modular.

GI Joe: why go from semi- to non-modular?
