    Well it looks like someone finally did a review of sorts on this unit (Seasonic S12III 500W).

    No, only a "Review", not a Review.

    Without a load tester and scope, you can't do a proper Review, only a good unboxing and describing of the fan provile. That's it.

    Seasonic fanboys who used Japanese caps as "argument" are now in a bit of a pickle

    This is a pretty weird decision from Seasonic, their new S12III won't be competitive at all.

    Nothing new from the first teardown, except for the slightly better photos. We see it has an NTC Themistor with bypass relay.
    No one is describing the capacitor series... Teapo ranges from medium to high end.
    It's using just one coil on the secondary side? There's two. One reviewer claims dual mag amp, while the other suggest typical group regulation.
    The performance testing is rather useless.

    I notice they mention "most of the secondary caps are Teapo", yet no mention of photo of the non-teapo caps... The race for the JapCap continues.

    If it was available here I'd grab one to check it out, alas, only the S12II is available

    I'm hoping it's actually using Dual MagAmp, new group reg designs in 2019 just doesn't make any sense at all...

    S12II isn't competitive for 5 years or more.
    Yet Seasonic claims it still sells well...

    Yeah, maybe because of the Seasonic fans that believe that manufacturing stuff yourself is an advantage and the "Wapanese Caps" (Wapanese -> Wannabe Japanese, made in China though)...

    All credits to Stephan for noticing this, if you look at the cables on the right hand side you can just see the 2nd minor rail coil indicating that the platform does use dual MagAmp...

    They're 25$ on Newegg, after 15$ mail-in rebate... not a bad psu for 25$, for cheap low end systems. Newegg link : https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16817151226
