    You both are right! Antec does make PSU's with a CP form factor but this is not one of them.
    CPU: Core i7 8700k, HT enabled, all 6 cores OC'd to 4.8GHz, Vcore = 1.24v
    Heatsink: Noctua NH-D15 with one NF-A15 1500 RPM PWM fan
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370X Aorus Gaming 7
    RAM: 4x16GB (64GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM 16-18-18-36@3200MHz, Vdimm = 1.35v
    GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 with 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X
    SSD1: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB TLC; SSD2: SAMSUNG 860 EVO 1TB 3-bit MLC
    HD: WD 500GB (old); Case: LIAN LI PC-7H Aluminum ATX Mid Tower
    PSU: Seasonic Platinum 660W

    From what I've been able to gather from forum posters in regards to the Delta Antecs is they all think they are pro O/C'ers and multi-rail sucks.

    Anything can suck, it just depends how you suck it! (And HCP Platinum does not suck )

    The failure to instant full power is a feature since ages and called "soft-start". Such a PSU powers up in stages to reduce the risk of popping ARC breakers. If other models do not fail your instant load they should still have a soft-start design, but maybe not as cautiously set as Seasonic's. Nobody does it without softstart. The last dumbasses not to do it were the engineers of Enermax Galaxy. Damn did we pop circuit-breakers and then noticed, fuck, even pre-1k, everyone except us was doing soft-start.

    Funny story:
    We gave a VIP at a certain graphics card company a pre-launch Galaxy for private use. The VIP then contacted us and asked, how come that his ARCs pop when he turns on his GALAXY, while he has his Hifi-system connected to it as well (All engineers, who survived my yells then, do softstart since )
    thanks for clearing that up! i was not sure what i was looking at when i saw that test, and couldn't figure out why that was bad. having blown many circuit breakers at the office, i understand what you mean. i ended up getting this unit and it's working marvelously. the 12V line does not budge even with a 7960X overclocked to 4.7GHz. speed step still enabled so the CPU throttles and speeds up depending on use. goes from 100W to something like 500W power draw for the CPU alone without any problems.

    i bought an HCP platinum 750W back in late 2014 to go with a 5930K CPU and dual GPUs. that PSU delivered WAY over it's rated output for 3+ years, in a poor airflow case (CM cosmos) and voltages were still very solid. i handed it down to someone else and it's still delivering. if they were still making that line of PSUs, i would buy it again in the 1000W flavor. from what i gather they were discontinued because when i was trying to buy it, it was only available from 3rd party sellers and they were charging north of $300 for them.

    Default Odd test out failing spike testing

    Hi,

    This issue where the psu failed spike testing on the 12v rail is this a problem? or was it a random rare occurrence not to worry about?


    Thanks
