    Those scope measurements are done with what sort of load? In real life the mother board plays a role.

    I don't know if you were asking me. See their sources.

    I want to update though that I finally got a unit and the cable is kind of a tight fit, but works perfectly!

    As a reference, it's in a Phanteks Enthoo Primo, and the designed sideways/vertical PSU housing and straight path due to separate cable-space makes the fit with this cable length possible.

    Phew, finally, one problem less. And the AX1600i unit works perfectly unlike the previous 2x AX1500i units.

    Edit: typo + improvements.

    It's done on a load tester with a 0.1μF ceramic disk capacitor and a 10 μF electrolytic capacitor to simulate system loading.

    Haven't you read any of the reviews here or read the Intel ATX design guide?

    Nope, can't say I have; design guides are updated exactly because they no longer reflect reality. Modern machines are running at higher and higher frequencies; a real system is a noisy beast and nothing like a resistive load with a small capacitive filter.

    Just trying to figure out the function of the in-line capacitors, which may be more motivated by reality than design guides.
