[3GM] Seventeam 1200W Modular PSU Review - Page 2

post #11 of 28
eh, it would be better if it had a single rail imo.
post #12 of 28
ugh.. 4 12v rails...

The Seventeam 1200W Modular Power Supply is one of the very best on the market. It offers quality, efficient and reliable power, it's quiet and is completely modular.

Freaking n00b. His "test" barely use 40% of the PSU. How can he claim the PSU is any good if his test prove nothing?

It's not proprietary. It's a high-current connector called an IEC C19/C20. More common with servers, but also seen in roughly half the high output PSU's on the market.

Two of the PCIe power connectors are on their own rail rated at 20A and the +12V rail that has the other two PCIe power connectors and the Molex connectors on it is rated at 30A. That's freakin' ideal.

You can buy 4 2900pro's pretty cheap these days. I think that would use about 1200w

Maybe if you put them in a Quad FX rig with a four drive RAID5 array you'd hit 1000WDC.

I think ideal is having all the power available to everything, and not having to worry which PCI-E connector has it's own rail, and how to split them up between two or more different power hungry cards and everything else thats on the 12v rail.

I agree. But YOU as a consumer shouldn't even have to worry about it. And I agree that if you do get a PSU that has only one +12V rail that isn't split up that there would be no concern. Either way, it should be a non-issue but marketing people have most customers brain-washed into thinking it's a problem.

Truth be told, you shouldn't NEED all of the power available to any one connector. You only NEED to deliver to that connector what the connector requires. Think about it: Having even four times as much power available to any one connector yields you what? Nothing. Whatever is plugged in is only going to draw what it needs, and the PSU designer isn't going to design the PSU to not give as much power to the connector as that connector can potentially use. The concern is that if there's a short and there's no OCP to stop the flow of current to the connector located at the short, you have a small fire on your hands.

You shouldn't have to worry about what PCIe connector is on what rail because SevenTeam made sure that if they put a PCIe connector on a rail with a bunch of Molex connectors that they increased that rail's capability so it wouldn't be an issue. It's not YOUR problem. It's THEIR problem. But some PSU manufacturers felt like saving money on the parts required to split up the +12V rail, throw caution to the wind with the safety standard in place, and then blame the other guys for having some fictional "trapped power" problem!

We're chock full of non-issues here. But some brilliant marketing guru decided to lie to us about why we needed multiple +12V rails (cleaner power my ass) and now those marketing gurus are lying to us about why we want one single +12V rail.

The fact is: This power supply has safety concerns addressed. This power supply has ample current available to every connector on each of it's rails. The fact that this power supply has one +12V rail or one million is a non-issue unless you're believing some power supply company's marketing FUD.
