    Mr. Einstein, that air you and I are breathing right now is contaminated with a dangerously unstable mix of carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen. Our new EasyAir™ technology insures that this mix will be brought into balance throughout your entire home, giving you the perfect mix of elements and allowing you to always be at your best.

    thanks for the review! Very good unit indeed and the results are the expected ones, since it is identical to the P-1000.



    It's a shame I won't get one for review since XFX EU is playing hide and seek with me

    Nicely done

    Question: Did either XFX or Seasonic unit made any buzzing noise (coils) at low load at very close distance?

    Marketing, Marketing Everywhere!

    I was actually surprised that they didn't put more gaudy marketing around the modular-connection or even at the top of the unit via those peel-away stickers.

    With the amount of noise all the fans in the room were making, I was lucky to be able to hear my own thoughts let alone any buzzing. You might as well ask me if I heard any spiders walking around the room

    Yeah - they're all over the basement. Big black ones. Don't bother me any... I hardly ever see them, and they eat all the other insects that venture down here. We have an understanding, the spiders and I

    Wolf, that PFC controller chip is ON's NCP1654 working at 65kHz fixed switching frequency, which they've been using since X series gen 1.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.
