Well that sucks about the cables. Better get an AX650 quick before they go out of stock.

Seasonic doesn't have the DSP technology implemented into its products yet, so they are incapable of producing an "i" level part right now.

Otherwise their parts are solid, but the "i" variants are superior.

Yup, just read the 860i review. He gave it a 10 in every category except value which got a 8.5, very impressive. And it looks like they utilized the space very well, it's not excessively large like Seasonics 860. A little unfortunate about the price, but I think I would be willing to pay lol, should be able to find them a bit lower too.

jonnyGURU retired to work at Corsair... he felt reviewing power supplies while doing so would be a conflict of interest.

Tony and I are the current reviewing folks there. Tony did this one.

Hello Hello... some new guy reporting in smile.gif.

Actually, I'm not really a new guy. I'm the guy that actually stepped up when Jon headed to BFG and was unable to keep the site going. Rather than see it go to the wayside, we thought it would be better that I took the reigns and keep it going, which was back in Jan 08. Although, I've done various reviews over the years I think my first PSU review was the Thortech unit from back in Nov 2010. I've done various unit's since then and have gradually been ramping it up. I started with a SunMoon SM-268 that I bought off of Jon, which now resides up at Wolf's place. I have since picked up a SunMoon SM-5500 which is what I currently test with. With Jon taking the gig at Corsair, we needed to shift the workload over. Rather than overload Wolf, it was only proper for me to step up a bit more.

Are less efficient power supplies being phased out, or are platinum PSU's just an addition to the product line?
