    No full load, hot box anomalies this time around. Hmmm. SS850-AT seems like a hit or miss.

    Obviously something about the Hale's version of the same platform has been screwy, did you spot any real differences in the part choices between the two Wolfy? Anything that could explain why the Hale performed so badly with ripple, and this one didn't? Or perhaps SeaSonic just had a bad batch that got to Hale's early ones and fixed it for later ones on the same series?
    Because other than the spikes on the hot tests, the two units seem to perform in an identical manner, which would fit them being the same platform.

    I think the bad batch explanation would explain why some have the spike issue, and most don't.

    All the parts are the same. So there's only a few differences which come down to the soldering.

    Nope. I will say I fixed both my 850W NZXT samples by using the hot air at full power to resolder around the 12V secondary output.
