    But 8 years for such old design could be a problem in the future for a modern PC. Today I would prefer DC-DC or indy regulation for the secondary.

    Not for me. 20 Years is more like my ideal lifespan for a PSU. I want to be able to re-use my DPS-600MB in my next 4 or 5 builds (unless ATX specs change or we go to 12V-only).
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

I suspect it has to do with the safety function of the supply shutting it down.

    Ordered the Seasonic S12II-520 Bronze which also reviewed by jonnyguru and all Japanese caps so hopefully this will last me more than 8 years.

    Thanks again.
    I've seen some asian review, no idea really from which country, but it had Chemi-Cons.

    Is the unit giving Power Good signal?
