    You have that backwards.

    They make LESS margin on the lower wattages from the same series. That's why they want you to buy higher wattages. Because manufacturing computer components isn't a...

    I've been told he does this with every component, in every forum.

    Yeah... as usual, the comments section is comedy gold (although the comedians don't actually know we're laughing at them).

    A lot code is typically part of the serial number.

    For example: The first four digits of a Corsair S/N is the year and week the PSU was manufactured.

    Yep. You have to not make as much margin on the lower wattage product, or over inflate the price of the higher wattage product to create that $10 MSRP delta. But eventually, you start seeing the...

    That's because it doesn't cost any less to build a smaller PSU these days.

    Case and point, the actual cost of materials to make an RM750 vs. an RM650 is less than $1.

    Absolutely. There's Nvidia workstations out there using the same PSU pulling a lot more power.




    This doesn't make sense.

    That's not a crap PSU. You might have had issues, but it's not crap. As Mask said, though. It's old. If it was actually under warranty still, then you bought someone's new old stock, which means...

    Seasonic is good product, but it's consumer level. They're far from being a tier 1 manufacturer.

    Not sure why you're having problems with Super Micro PSUs. Can you elaborate on what kind of...

    To be fair, Chinese hand soldering is pretty crappy.

    Pretty much almost every PSU needs "touch up" as it comes off the waver solder machine and it's almost always sloppy and far from perfect.

    Come to think of it... I have taken some PSUs rated at 110V down to 90V and had them blow up.

    But 99% of the time, they shut off. Just like how a lot of 230V only PSUs will shut off below 190V. ...
