    Is the AX 850 going to be reviewed as well? But yeah most impressive though, it will be tough for Antec, Coolermaster and maybe Seasonic's new units to beat.

    Antec will be able too keep, Since when does coolermaster deserve to be in the good psu list? Seasonic will be able to keep up with the ax850 easily as they are the same thing.

    Fujitsu FP-CAP.
    Software readings are crap.

    Default Now that's interesting...

    They have a +12V VRM? What's the input voltage? Getting that efficiency level with three stages of switching (APFC, main isolated transformer, and a buck VRM) would be impressive, but I'm not sure that's called for.

    Are you sure that isn't just active rectification? You talk about a "2812 controller", but mightn't that be a TPS2812 MOSFET driver? (I can't make out the manufacturer from the low-res picture in the review.)

    I also see two main transformers. I would dearly like to know if they are driven in-phase our out of phase; I've been ranting about the advantages of polyphase power supplies for a while.

    Nice scope, BTW. Do you use the peak detect mode to capture the ripple?

    Umm... the AX850 is a Seasonic.

    Yeah.. Only .08V drop on the +12V? That's the best I've heard/seen from a review sample so far.

    i love the voltage regulationnnnnnnnnnnnnnn better than *****

    wish the 12v was at 12.2v ....

    was there a potentiometer there that can be adjusted?

    Them too. And where have you been hiding?

    More likely it's not a VRM per se, rather it's just a daughterboard with the 12V output parts on it. I figured the VRM label could apply to it as well.

    The Tektronix hasn't been used for a review yet. It has some big hurdles for me to clear first, like finding a way to make scope shots that look good.

    The unit has enough weirdness in the design that polyphase idea sounds as good as any. If only there were a white paper...
