Default HCP 1000 Platinum(internal images)











Sick soldering job.. interesting DC to DC implementation too with the VRMs directly on the modular PCB.

That sure looks like Delta to me and not Aurum Pro as others have suggested. As for the VRMs on the modular PCB, doesn't the Seasonic Platinum design also have that arrangement?

Undoubtedly Delta, don't think that was ever questioned.. as for the XP-1000, indeed it does have a rather similar implementation, not identical though, the coils are sandwiched between the modular connector PCB and the VRM PCB itself

I wish they'd leave plexiglass in the retail version... looks interesting :P

That plexiglas housing would never pass EMI/RF testing.

Anyway, looks good to me from the inside out. I like how the 16-pin connectors will be able to handle the 10-pin and 5-pin cables, however unlikely that scenario will be.

I really hope the new high-end PSUs are quieter than the HCP-750/850. Mine has quite a bit of bearing noise at any speed...IMO any PSU this efficient should be able to run with passive cooling at lower power draws.

Those Addas really suck in that respect.

Anyway, I'd love that plexiglass look, it would combine well with my case. Except 1000W fully-passive unit is likely wishful thinking even at Platinum level.

Now that's interesting, it's definitely got some in common with the HCP750/850 units, but it looks to be almost an entirely new design, which is awesome.

The secondary is so different from HCP-750/850.

Can't wait to see the performance, especially the transient response.
