The ATX12v connector isn't overburdened it is loaded within what the rail is rated for, and within the loads that they had done as well.

why didn't you removed a point in the seasonic review also?
in the seasonic review you say: "Now, this unit did have some trouble hitting Platinum on my load testing gear."
But you don't removed a point for this.

Keep reading....

First off, I didn't review the Seasonic. Jeremy did.

Secondly, when the Platimax didn't hit 80 Plus Platinum, I retested the unit using the same loads that 80 Plus used and STILL didn't get 80 Plus Platinum efficiency. Jeremy did not test the unit using the 80 Plus loads, but even using his own loads he managed to get closer to Platinum than the Enermax did.

I think I'd take one point off performance score for worse ripple than X series and add one point back on build quality (soldering) since it's indeed more complicated than on X series that I shouldn't nitpick.

this site don't like enermax as they always show in their reviews, probably the platimax would mark 9.5 of final score if it was "labeled" by seasonic or corsair.

You do realize that the only other unit to score 9.8 total or better from me was an Enermax, right?

What are you going on about? This site doesn't like Enermax? Try reading more reviews. This site has dropped many 9-10 point scores for performance, build quality, and functionality on Enermax units over the years. They tend to lose points for value and in the past aesthetics.....but aesthetics are in the eye of the reviewer/buyer as is perceived value.
