    Ahhhh! I'm not so used to see their reviews... I usually read Paul's (HardOCP) and Christopher's (Anandtech).

    By reading SPCR's review you can get more info than just "this unit is quiet comparing to the load tester". You can tell the difference between the two Seasonics: S12-II and Earthwatt.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    WTF? A guy in our forums bough a Quattro 850 and from 18A on 12V now it has 25A.
    New revision or what? On Antec site is listed with 18A.

    That's weird.

    At first I thought it was the newer Signature 850 but spec's don't match and model number says it's a TPQ-850.

    Maybe they realized the OCP wasn't set at an optimum value, after all, who the hell needs 18A for whatever S-ATA and molex connectors are powering, some of those amps mind as well go to the video cards.

    OK, a guy on our forums drops a mail to Antec about 25A on 12V rail. The answer:

    with a card like the GTX280 out there, that sounds like a good idea.
