    Arrow Seasonic Prime Platinum 1200 Review

    Not very long ago, Seasonic made a big splash by releasing their new flagship 80 Plus Titanium units onto an eager public. But their plan for continued domination of the market doesn't stop there... they are also Priming their way to 80 Plus Gold and Platinum. Today, we'll be looking at the highest powered of the Platinum line at 1200 watts.

    I really wish you'd start docking points for in-cable caps, Wolfy.

    How does this one stack up to the Evga P2?

    They put incable caps? sigh.

    @Wolf, I honestly don't think 18AWG is too big of an issue. I would've thought that where the crimped area is (connector pin to wire) would be the weakest link, first thing to burn up, rather than the wire. Plus, what's the most one can draw from a single wire there? 10 amps? Since there should be 3-4 conductors, should be plenty (40a, ~480w).

    But I do like some 16AWG wires. They feel less flimsy.

    Also, are those 12v FETs these? http://www.vishay.com/docs/64430/sir638dp.pdf

    It's a huge issue to crypto miners. They buy these units for the mythic performance, overclock, and don't think about what that does to the cabling. Yes, it's likely at the crimp these connectors fail.

    Don't crypto miners buy custom cable sets?

    Why would they do that and what for cables?

    The real problem is by the way the modular connector, the 18AWG wires probably only give you a small hit in efficiency and voltage drop, but nothing else and nothing seriously.
