    A PSU with DC to DC with have it's own IC with it's own OCP, OVP, UVP, etc. for the voltages produced on that DC to DC circuit.

    Good to know that.

    Besides that I had similar experience too,
    Aris' review of HCG gold 850... That sample had loose 5VSB trigger point so the rail was fried.
    That was introduced to local forum and people paid too much attension to it... so became a small issue.

    They tend to overreact when something 'burns' or 'explodes'..

    The Corsair is vastly superior in every aspect over the Seasonic!
    Could you explain to us simple people, what makes that Yate Loon sleeve bearing inside the Corsair VS so good, that is vastly superior?

    Because the Controller for the DC-DC circuit usually also comes with some form of protection.
    Well, if its implemented that is. There are some units from certain manufacturers that burn when overloaded...


    So those units can switch off before the 5V Rails drops to 3,3V or 3,3V drops to 1,8V...

    But also keep in mind that not all DC to DC circuits in PSUs that feature this actually use an IC. Or at least an IC that supports protections like OCP.

    That's one of the differences with the CX750M and CX850M between the "green label" and "gray label".

    Then how do they feature with without IC?
