Meantime, is there a way to test the PSU to verify it's working? I remember reading somewhere that is a procedure by using connecting a case fan and shorting out two pins using a paper clip?

Thanks!

PS - Add me to the SeaSonic X series owners club too!

Your in.

OT: if you are only gaming, get the 2500K and save $100.

Yes you can. Simply run a wire between the green and a black lead on the 24-pin MB connector. Don't expect the PSU fan to kick in though. It'll only start at 20% load.

Does anyone know the gauge of the x-650 power cable?

Thanks for the tip!

I did pick up an i7-2600K CPU and a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ earlier today at MC so I should be able to test "on the bench" until I order a case.

Man oh man, I love this PSU. The most quiet PSU I've ever owned.

I am thinking about getting the X850 for my next build (bulldozer and CF 6970).

The SS-660 (Server) and SS-400 (HTPC). I love them both, the modular connectors and the hybrid fan are great features. The SS-400 is fanless but my SS-660 runs fanless too since it's drawing less than 30% of it's available power.
