    So overal it's a great power supply. With some great ripple suppression on the 5V en 12V, without capacitors in the cables!

    But I believe that a high-end PSU like this be quiet! should have all black cables and not colored cables with some sleeving.

    I also did find some issues. The 24 pins ATX cable wires are rubbing between two PCBs, which already have some marks in them because of the sharp PCBs.

    There were also two cables with some cuts in them and a thermal pad that was shifted.

    Nice!!, your reviews are very promising !!
    I'm a little confused about something though:
    You have 2 charts about AC input / DC output. While at the 1st chart the output is 25 A for 3,3V / 5V (125 watt), the second chart says 20 A (100 watt).
    Typo i presume?

    Yes indeed, thx. The problem is that I can change it. The load testing was done wrong. The 3,3V and 5V can take up to 125W and I only tested till 100W.

    How was the ripple on the ATX connector?

    It's measured at the break-out board. 3,3V is a combination of SATA connectors and the 24 pins ATX plug. 5V is a combination of SATA connectors, Molex connectors and the 24 pins plug. And the same applies to the 12V.

    Shouldn't there be 0.1 uF ceramic caps on there in addition to the electrolytic ones? I didn't see any.
