Not sure. I have to say the "rotated board" is sheer genius and I give Enermax mega props for thinking outside of the box.

We've already seen it in CWT PUC, Seasonic X series (both generations) and Corsair AX1200.

No. He's not talking about the DC to DC on the modular interface. He's talking about the primary being in the front and the secondary in the back, eliminating the need to run the wire from the side of the PSU to the front.

Yes, and I do believe that both the Seasonic X series platform and the AX1200 use that type of layout as well.

Ha ha... of course, both reviews Jeremy did. But you are correct. The AX1200 and the Seasonic X series have the primary in the front and secondary in the rear.

The Corsair AX1200 is so damn crammed that I didn't even think of it being laid out that way by just glancing at the layout. I actually had to point all the components out to myself to realize that's the way it was laid out.
