One more question shilka, how can I know if a PSU is Group regulated or Independently Regulated? I can't find this information on some manufacturers.

Thanks!

Only the cheapest units you can buy today are group regulated since its so outdated
Almost everything good these days are independently regulated

The Seasonic Foucs Plus Gold the Corsair RMx and the EVGA G3 are some of the best options price to performance wise
The Seasonic Prime Ultra is the flagship series and therfore cost more than the Foucs Plus

It is only a matter of time until something fails, especially old dried up electrolytic capacitors. The cool thing to do would be to service it, just like a car gets stuff replaced over it's life. But honestly to get quality brand name caps needed, would probably cost $40
