Jonny321321 you might want to remove your serial # information, it's from April 2018 batch which shouldn't have issues. If you do have issues get in contact with Seasonic support.

Thanks, didn't know what someone could do with my S/N but maybe it's better to be safe than sorry (I have obscured it). Good, I shan't return it then. Was hoping 850W would last me a long time, giving me enough for any current/future single GPU rig with overclocking headroom and then some. Else I would have got an EVGA 1000W for same price. It seems like it should do the trick.

"
The game with the highest load peaks and also the longest load conditions in the maximum range is, it wonders, Witcher 3 in Ultra HD.This has emerged after the first comparison measurement with 10 games.The average power consumption over a measuring space of one second is about 250 watts, so fully in the norm."

Quote:
The short-term line consumption of current graphics cards is in some cases significantly higher than the values ​​given as an average or what the chip manufacturers characterize as typical board power. These values ​​are averages over a rather large interval. Depending on the quality of the secondary side of a power supply, the short-term load (1 to 10 ms) can be significantly higher.

I would therefore recommend that you add 50 watts more margin to power consumption ranges of the graphics card between 150 and 200 watts of TBP, and over 100 watts for high-end systems from about 200 watts onwards. This should cover the peculiarities of AMD and Nvidia cards well and you do not have to spend hours with component control. Most reviews do not do that anyway.

As a conclusion of this test, I therefore take it for me personally, in the future in my graphics card individual reviews to give the readers a power supply rating recommendation on the way. Without me then as a servant of the power supply industry to do, but rather than the well-meaning neighbor, who might know it better.

AMD needs to hire better electrical engineers, imho. Between the Vega transients and the RX 480 out of spec issue, it makes them look like bad product designers.

Okay, so I have a Vega 56 & a Seasonic Focus 850W Plus produced in April 2018 (the Vega shutdown issue was supposedly fixed in January). I get these black screen flashes as if the GPU driver is crashing and my GPU profile will reset, even at GPU stock & not running anything particularly intensive. Happens irrespective of AMD driver installed. Do you think this is a power supply issue and I should return it?


EDIT: Perhaps it's an issue with my VEGA's hotspot issue exceeding 105c though

Well .. I just moved to a new apartment and the random buzzing has stopped. Completely. I did have the previous house checked for anything "odd" in the power grid, but they couldn't find anything. So my only conclusion is that I'm still confused I'm not an electrician so I cannot confirm their conclusion, and hiring another electrician to do 2nd opinion checkup is a tad too expensive for my taste.


Anyway, I'm glad that I can finally enjoy my silent build without any buzzing. Now I just need to silence my neighbors. Ugh.
