    Thanks for the great review. However, you missed out using "primordial." That simply won't do. Please ensure that your next review is prim and proper.

    (Seriously though, you made me chuckle. :-)

    Just in time for "La Primavera."

    What next for Seasonic? How about single-ribbon CPU cables? How about smooth & continuous upswings?

    What they can do better? Get rid of that noisy FDB fan maybe. I'm still so disappointed with mine and I don't want to bother with RMA.

    I'd like to see better cabling/connections to better support higher wattage GPUs - going by their chart on their site you can't use the 550w for an x80Ti/Vega card (amusingly, you can do 2 1080Tis on the 750w gold but not the 850w gold, though you can on the Titanium.).
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    I'd actually rather they put the ball-bearing fans back - slightly louder, maybe, but I still don't trust sleeve and sleeve-like bearings much. I had hoped this would be part of the enhancements from Prime->Prime Ultra and was rather disappointed when it wasn't.

    And yet in hard drives they have totally replaced ball bearings.

    Well, IIRC some of the Hong Huas with FDB model numbers internally have ball bearings...

    Would take Protechnic FDB over them anyday.

    Ball Bearings are bullshit, if:
    a) we don't have high Temperature envirment
    b) high RPM

    If neither applies, FDB beats the shit out of 2BB because the temperature of the lubricant is too colt for it to lubricate.

    And another thing is the noise. Its not just a bit louder, its rather annoying.

    There is a reason why you don't see Ball Bearings in a PC enviroment these days. And that is that it doesn't make sense and FDB is by far the better choice.

    Yeah, so we don't get any nice bearing noise any more
