Thumbs up Who Has the Honor...

... of dissecting all those power supplies? Great review as always, I have never seen a more comprehensive PS review anywhere. I do like the pics of the internal construction and the individual parts used, I'm a deluxe geek in that aspect. This Seasonic PS is a great unit and you do get what you pay for, and I agree with your comment regarding the price and the non-enthusiast customer. Seasonic products don't seem to be discounted much that I can see, but I will be trying one the next time I need a PS.

Back to my question, and another, do you actually disassemble the PS you review for the pictures? It sure seems that way. Apparently the manufacturers allow you to do this, or do you purchase the reviews units, or what? It takes time and effort to remove the parts and still have them in a photogenic state, nice work if that is what is done, I appreciate it. So who does that work, and any job openings in that department? Also, do you rebuild them afterward? I'm not sure I would want that job...

This PSU isn't only suited for low noise applications.
It's also suited to power systems where long term technical reliability is paramount. The fan is generally the weakest part in any quality PSU, and not having any PSU fans is thus much better! (It's easier to hot-swap a broken redundant cabinet fan in the server rack.)

That's only half of it. I got a really good laugh reading paragraph 9 in this review! (And that's a positive laugh, not a mean "what moron wrote this bull" kind of laughter... the rest of that review is good reading too.)

Cheers
