They are great! How did you know I love the feeling of pulling my teeth bare?
So long story short: my M12II Evo 620 developed an odd issue: would shut down my pc on very specific loads (possibly load peaks, because sustained Furmark + Prime95 had it chug along fine) and after confirming the culprit with a spare XFX I had laying around, eh might as well move from Bronze to Gold.
The choice fell down to a Focus+ 750W (originally intended for a 650, but for only 9€ more, why not?), and while I did read complaints about the inline cable capacitors and how much of a pain they are for cable management, I thought little of it. "They're just exaggerating, it's Seasonic, they thought of it of course, they know what they're doing"
I was wrong. I was oh so wrong.
I simply could not bend the cables to fit neatly through the case grommets, those capacitors would always get in the way. I could only either leave dangerously phallic shapes of cable inside the case, or on the other side of it not have nowhere near enough clearance to close the side panel.
Had a stroke of luck in the end though. When I stopped pulling my hair out for a bit I noticed the M12's cables do fit the Focus. Well without capacitors installation was a breeze, and so far seems to be working well (but I'll keep monitoring for a while, just in case).
So yeah, Seasonic if you're reading this, this was not the brightest idea you guys ever had.
(btw, while swapping power supplies I discovered my newfound hate for non-removable psu shrouds, but that's a story for another time really. Thanks Fractal
