    Midnight review. It seems pcper is eager to see the review out. So is TT

    The MSRP is sort of high for a re-sized PUQ-G thing. It's fully modular though. Considering PCPer being in the big-vdrop club, the performance is still more than fine.

    Compared to their Season G-Series review, it's a better unit in regards to V-Reg.

    Obviously you can only compare reviews between similar setups for the most part, but it's still interesting to see the design decisions on this guy.
    Like those thick wires leading from the VRM's to the modular power board.

    It's easy to assume that it's a PUQ-G based unit, because it's CWT, double forward, 80 Plus Gold, etc., but it's quite a bit different. For example: Like the Chicony based units, it uses 2 x 2 FETs in parallel, which is part of why the PCB appears "re-sized" over that of a PUQ-G.

    There were some improvement for sure. I was also referring to the voltage regulation, ripple level and so on. I guess it's not be a totally new design either. What makes me miss the PUQ-G is the great value of the units based on it.
