    The standby load tests may be pretty average across the board, but I would like to see them stay.

    The DFS132512H is a sleeve bearing fan though. I wish, for the life of me, these companies would quit lying or trying to sugar coat their fan bearing names and either stick with a proper bearing type (2BB or FDB) or at least with a standard name.

    First, a fan shot for your pleasure. You sick people... that fan had a family before I shot it.
    LOL!

    I wouldn't mind trading standby tests for advanced transients.

    Unit pretty so-so electrically, with some quirks to stand out.

    Efficiency off 80Plus Gold even at cold test, It's very strange that Corsair's Silver (HX) have better efficiency than CM's Gold (SPG/SPH)

    At least a little better ripple suppression...

    Wolf, did you bother to play with the power fan speed dial during load testing to see if the fan speed is fixed in manual mode, or can be tuned lower than in auto mode?
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    Yes - inconclusive. Even at high loads in cold testing, switching the fan to the lowest manual mode setting runs the fan faster than auto does. Was not about to try it in the hot box.

    The 7V rail is certainly a very interesting idea. The 1.8A rating is plenty for a good number of fans (since the current requirement drops with lower voltage). This feature of reminds me of the "fan only" headers on the Antec TruePower units from 2003 that run the attached fans at the same voltage as the PSU fans.

    Very interesting unit. It has some nice touches, a good build and good ripple up to 600w.
    I dont care about the 7v rail nor the fan controller, but the modular connectors are STANDARD on the psu-side and this is extremely useful for cable sleevers, I can simply get a 24 pin molex "extension" and plug it there.

    Any plan to test the 850W unit?
