    Default Platinum Flowers

    Super Flower has an 80 plus platinum PSU on 80plus.org.

    The SF-550P14PE

    Oh nice, they're the only ones so far besides FSP to have a platinum PSU.

    This is ridiculous. If they keep it up for a few years, I may think of them as THE best OEM for enthusiast grade PSUs. If they just took the ripple down to typical Seasonic's (M12II/D or X) level...

    The ripple on the new Super Flowers are just fine, look at the new NZXT Hale90 PSU's.

    Well I think it comes down to cap choice.
    NZXT went Jap on the caps; while Kingwin went CapXcon & Teapo.

    But that ripple is really low. With some solid voltage regulation.

    I know. But it can always be "excellent" instead of "just fine".

    Looks like Superflower isn't fooling around. I'll have to keep my eye on them.
    It's my PSU in a box!
    Ooo-ooh,

    I'll have to see it for myself. If history repeats itself, its just going to be a PSU with awesome efficiency, but crappy regualtion and ripple.
