    You can also talk to an engineer or product manager at the company; they can sometimes supply appropriate documentation to show how they source the fan and the proper technical diagrams to show it's a proper FDB.
    Yes, but count me as a cynical old man -- I grew up in the 1960s. What you said earlier -- "Because, unless they have a skilled engineer on staff then they could get duped by the Fan OEM into taking an inferior product" rings true. I can see fan OEMs baiting and switching -- the first-delivered specimens being rifle or FDBs, the later stuff being the cheaper sleeve bearings. So it requires that the PSU OEM have good QC to make sure all parts of the device meet spec. This would be true for large OEMs. Is Seasonic large enough to have thorough QC? Can we trust them?

    Relative to some other OEMs like CWT & FSP; they are rather small.

    Depends who you ask and talk to...

    But something to keep in mind (sadly only Russian), what you see here is reason enough to be sceptical...

    Please explain.

    I believe hes talking about how Seasonic claim it has dual 12V rails but the HY510N protection IC only supports a single 12V output.
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    For multiple +12V Rails you need:
    a) seperated solderjoints
    b) traces from the seperated Solderjoint to a supervisior
    c) a supervisior that uses that.

    S12II-Bronze has none of what you need, yet the Label states two 12V Rails with 20A each...
