    DCDC is possible with anything. Just the 12V from the first DC stage is coverted into 3.3V & 5V, not all 3 voltages simulataneously. That improves efficiency and 12V ratio of total output, as...

    Literally all (99.9%) 80 PLUS PLATINUM PSUs and literally most (99.5%) 80 PLUS GOLD PSUs are of a Resonant LLC type.

    @ Jeremy,

    The failure to instant full power is a feature since ages and called "soft-start". Such a PSU powers up in stages to reduce the risk of popping ARC breakers. If other models do not fail...

  11. And to be more precise, of course you need the...

    And to be more precise, of course you need the 3.3V for PWDIS, so that PATA adaptor renders the feature useless. I just call it SATA 1, which is totallyy misleading but catches the point.

    PWDIS is...

    SATA 1 = no 3.3V, SATA 2 got it added, but few manufacturers utilized it. (SATA 1 connectors have 4 cable wires like a PATA)
    Thats why in SATA 3.2 they can mis-use the 3.3V pins as the PWDIS.

    So...

    We had that discussion some time ago when Jeremy's Seasonic review came out.

    - The spec is stupid, but for some enterprise drives only, not for mainstream. (Thats why they decided on this stupid...

    Well, in the latest DG 1.41 Intel added comment paragraphs which confirm exactly my prophecies here :cool:

    Exactly, they talk to 5-6 companies only :D :D :D (I have a boner now :lol: )

    But agree PCI Sig is worst, their board of directors has even internal communication issues (= boycotts).

    650W are more than enough with staggered spin up. Just use Molex splitters accordingly to "distribute" the staggered spin-up on your cables = A cable with 4 Molex + 4 splitters = 8 Molex on 1 cable,...

    ASM has no structure like this. It is baked into the OS. Read the Microsoft link I gave in an earlier post. There are no defined power states like S7/C7 except maybe an total disable switch, but it...

    Yes, people will claim it and not get it. They bought 2.4 or older PSUs, not 2.6. Same with anything else in the world. You don't get future compatibility. So the costs of this is on the...

    Why are you & Stefan smoking crack :D ?

    The connector would then still have 24 pins with more empty pins for downward-compatibility.
    And for other components, do you wanna get rid of PATA & SATA...

    It is very simple:

    They don't write this for fun in paragraph 4.1 (see pic)

    They know that the "change" means that ATX12V 2.6 PSU cannot be downwards compatible.

    Only thing is if MB makers...

    @Zhentarim,

    That EA GOLD PRO version is EOL abd from FSP. It is a good series, not as high-end as the new Seasonic-made one, but cheaper.
