Thats the AXi models which are a ripoff

The AXi models are a ripoff you can get almost as good or better in some areas for far less money

240$

399$ and on sale 330
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139039

Thats 90$ to 160$ more for a unit that is less then 1% better = massive ripoff

And the G2 has 100 watts more

Ripoff or not I want to pay for the best performer. Does the single rail on the corsair ax1200i DEFINITELY handle multiple cards at max power better than a multiple rail design of other psu (like seasonic x1250) ? I noticed the supernova is single rail too which is nice

Also, is the platinum vs gold efficiency neglected? I know you mentioned the supernova designs are from the platinum version?

Trust me I'd rather save money, but if it's going to cost me 3 $600 cards a few months down the road, or even my home when I'm gone, I will spend the extra money frown.gif

Looked into it what you saw in that thread was THE 1000 WATTS versions

The SuperNova G2 1300 watts has better voltage regulation then the AX1200i but ripple is within 2-3mv of each other so i call that a draw

The G2 has less then 2% lower efficiency then the AX1200i and more like 1%

I say the G2 with its better voltage regulation and much lower price is the better value of the two by far

$170 after $10 MIR EVGA Supernova 1000G2 1000W

It's been cheaper before but just saying.

Hi INCREDIBLEHULK,
We are looking into this matter and at this point, our QA believes the power draw from the VGA exceeds the spec of the connectors but the testing is not yet finalised.
Did you start the RMA process?

If the 12V & GND were mixed, the PSU's protection circuits would kick in.

Good luck Hulk.. interesting to see what happens because I know seasonic is going to blame it on what ever you had it hooked to. Unless they know they might be a problem then they will replace asap to keep you quiet....

It did not on my X-850 but this is good to know (I know it did not because i made a custom fan harness and did not heat shrink the solder connections redface.gif) did not hurt PSU but I manged to burn up a extension...

I am very happy to see you posting here and I sure was hoping you would be or Seasonic would stand by it. But I also know how this would look if I was on your side. it looked like a either direct or close to direct short at the other end to me...

You have restored my faith in seasonic... Great PSU's and great customer service it seems!!!!!

We take all quality issues seriously and melted connectors is something we set at high priority to investigate. At this point, we have reviewed our design and component usage and everything is so far in order. Our investigation continues...

Running a 1250X with 3 x 7970, I am getting worried now....

I say this because last night whilst playing BF4 the PC restarted - no warning, or error message just totally lost all power and reset itself, I thought PSU at the time and after reading this I am inclined to unplug the lot and check connections thinking.gif

Don't make stuff up. A computer wouldn't even begin to boot if this were the case - and it sure wouldn't take 1.5 YEARS for the PSU to show a problem.
