That last pic really widens the eye.

Your advice, though, conflicts with McSteel's:

When to let it go?

I decided to take this question to its own thread.

When you have a quality PSU, when do you take it out of service?

Thinking of an old Pioneer amp that needed a new part -- a capacitor, I think.

But on PSU's from quality OEM's, should we replace them prospectively? If so, when? Or wait until they fail?

Wolf -- I love what you did with the solder spots, and how you got rid of that weird pulsing. Must be a slow oscillation due to the reduced current.

This thing will only work on a 230-240v power grid, right? Our 20A -- if they run a 110v -- circuits would only produce 2200A. So the US market will not be available for this muscular PSU.

The reviewer uses the unit in his own rig, rather than selling it. A strong recommendation.

Like Jonny's bang-on-the-desk suggestion, this is old school -- and like Jonny's suggestion, sound advice. One looks for loose connections, the other for cryptic shorts.

Some people prefer fixed cables -- especially those who build adequately performing boxen for others.

Some people prefer modular cables. Probably most enthusiasts do.

Yup. And now that Seasonic has gotten beyond BB fans for a mainline product, could they also move on to a 140mm fan?

Interesting that they are still going with a 120mm fan. Had they gone with a 140mm fan, they could have used a Noctua NF-A14 or a Thermalright TY-140. Since I've seen pics of fans from other...
