I've just got an e-mail from Seasonic saying that they corrected all errors found on their website that we pointed out in our review. We've just checked and they were indeed corrected. It is always nice to see manufacturers fixing things based on our reviews! Kudos to Seasonic!

Sorry for my English, I speak only Italian.
Great review and you convinced me to purchase. But I wanted to know about a comparison Enermax Pro82+ 525w
non re-tested enermax pro82+ 525 power supply using our new GWInstek GPM-8212 power meter,Fluke 52 II
and (a.k.a. “incubator”)box in MDF.(mistake???)
then the efficiency e working temperature becomes equal to that of seasonic s12II-520bronze but seasonic is good for ripple
Therefore we recommend the Seasonic
but overload test:temp is 39.9 for 50°C not test or test max ~470watt

Old design had a single solid capacitor
Sad that the current bronze s12ii PSU has no solid capacitors, I wonder if a couple of $ could lead to an increase in efficiency.
S12II “Bronze” Series
Note: The old s12ii appears to have had a single solid cap:
The "Hi-TechReviews" site has a top-down picture of the non-bronze s12ii that appears to have a single solid capacitor where the wires leave the PSU PCB.
