You seem to have swapped the ripple values around for the 12VB and 5V inputs in the figures (19 and 20) below the ripple table.

Otherwise nice review. It's a decent incarnation of the Seasonic S12-II Bronze platform.

This article says the 750W was produced by Ehance, but the 750W review says it was made by Delta.

Are they the same group, or was that just a mistake?

hi,
I did not realize what is more stable between hcg 520 and 620, i've read on techpwup that 620 have fail in some test. I've found 620 at the same price of 520 but i'm not sure about stability.
what do you recommended ?
my system is around 400/450w

tnx

Alex

Alex,

This Seasonic-based unit seems to be a better choice. I am not sure which is the real manufacturer behind the 620 W model. Does the review you read tell you that?

Thanks,
Gabriel.

hi Gabriel thank you for your reply,


"The OEM is Seasonic and to be more precise the HCG-620 is a rebadged SeaSonic S12II 620. It seems that lately we've seen a lot of the S12II series, since the two previous PSUs we reviewed were based on S12II 520 and S12II 430 platforms respectively. "

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Antec/HCG-620/4.html

i don't understand why 520 pass all test and the 620 fail some test , i'm confused , who is more stable? are they identical ?

tnx

Alex

I am considering the purchase of S12II-620 by adding 25€ to avoid any problem in this way

Since we haven't tested the 620 W model we can't answer your question. Comparing tests from different websites is difficult, as we use a different methodology, and results can be different. All I can say is that Seasonic is a tier 1 manufacturer, and you won't do a bad business buying a power supply manufactured by them.
