    Yeah. The new version of Firefox is pissing me off with URL's. It now truncates the URL in the location bar by removing the "http://". When I copy and paste the URL into the review without adding the "http://", our backend software adds the whole "http://www.jonnyguru.com/" because that's the default root for all links, images, etc. The end result is an f'd up URL like the one you saw.

    It's combined total isn't drastically low like 100w.
    And most units on the market are 150w combined for the minor rails.

    All I'm saying is that other 80+ Gold 1200w+ units post the same results when tested, no matter what the combined output is rated at.

    Well, it does matter in my testing because I max out the +3.3V and +5V combined. So if the combined on one unit is 120W and I see a 3% drop, that's not as good as when I have another unit with a combined of 150W and also see a 3% drop.

    But normal users are not going to max out those rails. Not even power users. They're staying in spec and doing what they say they can do.

    If anything, I've yet to see a PSU knocked for it's 5vSB output or low amperage that some units have.

    I know normal users aren't going to max out those rails. Most users aren't going to max out their +12V either. I see reviewing a power supply is about taking it to the extremes without exceeding it's advertised capabilities.

    The unit still got a 9 score for performance, so obviously I didn't ding it too hard. Missing 80 Plus Gold as much as it did in the hot box was more of a disappointment than anything.

    It is fine to point out not to compare the minor rail regulation data directly with other units having 150w +3.3V/+5V combining output.

    You can change this. Type "about:config" in the address bar. Type "trim" in the filter box. You'll see "browser.urlbar.trimURLs", make the value "false" (double clicking works).

    The price of this PSU is decent if you buy it in combos with rosewill cases. I got this PSU + the Thor V2 Full tower case for $300 when they had it on sale last month
