    First page is freaky small font.

    Have pity on the visually challenged.

    Ok... I just removed all of the font tags. Do you non-IE users have a decent font size now?

    Ok.

    My guess is the editor sets a basefont tag that IE doesn't support, so when I set a relative font size, it works in IE, but in Firefox it sets the font size I define relative to the base font. Anyhoo... looks like I need to not set any font properties and just leave everything at default.

    That standby rail is getting jiggy with it in those scope shots. Got a case of the boogy woogy. I respect the standby rail's artistic ambitions, but politely remind it that it needs to calm the heck down.


    I found voltage regulation to be mediocre for this price bracket. We see units like the HX850, M12D 850W, ST85F-P, SG850, etc. all pulling 1% or close to it on the +12V, and the AX850 only manages 2%? It's not bad, but for this price I'd expect top notch performance in all areas, including voltage regulation.
    It's my PSU in a box!
    Ooo-ooh,
    My PSU in a box, baby!

    True. And normally I'd take another .5 off the score for this, but since this unit is utilizing so many "fresh" ideas in one box, I gave it its point back.

    Essentially, take what Andyson had in it's MT8 three years ago... LLC resonant topology, DC to DC on non-primary rails, completely separate +5VSB circuit... do it right, and combine it with using MOSFET's for +12V regulation, put your non-primary DC to DC converters directly on the modular interface and using a +12V relay to switch on/off your inrush current protection and you have what could be the next generation of computer power supply topology.
