Default SevenTeam ST-1200E-AF (now the official: Kill-A-Watt means squat thread)

I won't have time to open it or load it up until the weekday, but I wanted to take pictures of this thing right away in case it got damaged because of the hair-brained packaging used to ship this thing from Taiwan to US via UPS.

This is the same seventeam design that silverstones use in their DA1200 and OP1200 correct?

Well, nice to see the PSU in that protective foam

Usually it's just laying there loose in it's cardboard box :P

I'm guessing the PSU itself was not damaged by the very rough handling by the post companies?

No. It looks fine. Just the big dent in the corner.

I don't know how I got those numbers either. It's weird. But it also goes to show that you not only can't trust a Kill-A-Watt... you can't trust the expensive stuff either! The draw from the wall is actually probably in the neighborhood of 900W in those first two videos.

I'm going to use a clamp meter next and see what it tells me.
