I'm just glad we're not in Australia/New Zealand, even though Austrian prices bring tears to my eyes on a regular basis, just like the availability here. Most online-shops have unreliable stock-numbers because they don't keep more expensive parts, such as most PSUs, most GPUs and CPUs in stock and only order those parts from their supplier when necessary

Hi Guys, we sent the 2nd sample is because the first unit, being early production run in a small batch, our factory accidentally mixed in a wrong part. Some were ok, some not. We have since rectified this issue. Sorry.

Thanks for the explanation! Makes sense, and should be forgivable in most users' minds.

Asking another difficult question: Even though the error doesn't actually break anything (just somewhat lessens the awesomeness of the unit), is it grounds for a return? If so, do you know the serial numbers of the affected units?

Personally, going by what Wolfie described, I'd be perfectly content with his unit #1 and those like it.

That's a leakage inductance coil for the LLC converter... I might be horribly off, though.

10/10 for performance, just not sure i'd give it 10 for value.

The EVGA has gone on sale and has a $30 MIR now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-063-_-Product

Price quibbles aside, we can agree the Prime lives up to the Seasonic reputation for quality.

I've wanted one of these since Easter, when I was one of the winners in the Seasonic Easter Game contest. Unfortunately, all I won was a goody bag (marketing stuff, mini-screwdriver, LED keychain, Prime velcro wire ties, and Prime gummy bears! But no power supply). Actually the power supply winners received existing platinum and gold units, not titanium Prime units. So I guess I'll just have to buy one for my next build. Excellent review - 10/10 and 10 yr warranty, that's a very TENacious adversary, the new "gold standard" for titanium power supplies, so to speak...

@Oklahoma Wolf

I wonder how this unit got a perfect 10 with those deviations in the transient tests. Yeah, i know they're all in spec but all top of the line units have been producing perfect lines for years now. To be honest, i feel like i've just read a paid review. I'm a bit disappointed...
