    Awesome idea, a 90° 24 pin adapter would be pure gold in my build. Then again, only silly people put a semi-custom loop into a µATX case.

    Disagree here, even if you build a M.2 + 1 HDD system, how much would one loose connector really hurt (vs. all the people with 2 SATA drives)?

    I'd also be against single connector SATA cables as I'd need to have 3 cables in my rig to power my drives then which isn't something I want at all

    Single SATA wouldn't be reasonable since cables are quite costly when it comes to the costs of manufacturing. The costs would outweigh the benefits.

    You can make your own single SATA connectors, all it takes is a wire cutter.

    3.331 V in cold tests (test 4), isn't it a typo in the table?

    That's the number in the master spreadsheet.

    It's probably 3,311V, not that it matters much...

    Default Seasonic's amazing voltage regulation

    Hello all,

    I just was looking on Cybenetics (Aris) database for noise level and voltage regulation of various PSU's and i found something worthy of the Guiness Book world records.
    The Prime Platinum 650 has an amazing voltage regulation of the +12 rail of 0.003V and 0V at cross load, the 850W Platinum has an maximum of about 0.005V being steady from test 1 until test 9 with the crazy number of 0.001V, the Platinum 1000W has the same 0.005v and the last one, the Platinum 1200 came with 0.006V. The Focuses also averages at 0.007 volts.
    WFT with those crazy numbers? What's next Seasonic? A fanless PSU with 0V regulation on all rails, 0 mV ripple and +1 second hold-up time? When it comes that PSU?
    Interesting enough is that the only PSU from another manufacturers which came close to this numbers is the Corsair digital AXi and not a single one being analogic.

    One question on the review. Is the fan an issue ? I.e, will it last 12 years given the type ?

    Thanks Al3xand3r, the units tested at Cybenetics, like all other review samples are all market purchases from webshops so you can be sure that the units anyone buys will have the same performance.

    0mV ripple and 1 second hold up... wow... that would be .... hmmm.... :-P
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
