    EVGA Caught Sending Golden Samples of the SuperNova B3 to JonnyGuru

    Any way... Going back to the article. Here are the facts: We don't know who built Jeremy's (jonnyguru.com) sample. We don't know who made Aris's. Assumptions were made because Super Flower frequently outsources due to limited output capability. This is not an uncommon practice for smaller...

    EVGA Caught Sending Golden Samples of the SuperNova B3 to JonnyGuru

    ^^^ By far best list out there. But remember: Simply knowing the OEM doesn't tell you much. The product could be a particular factory's design, but you don't know who did the PCBA or the assembly. And even if it is a bigger factory that does everything in house, those bigger factories have...

    EVGA Caught Sending Golden Samples of the SuperNova B3 to JonnyGuru

    Not... True..... Blind ignorance is truly bliss. You must have missed who was responding to this thread. Otherwise, you would not have assumed I don't know what I'm talking about. I know that has an air of arrogance to it, but for Christ's sake there's just as many assumptions made by...

    EVGA Caught Sending Golden Samples of the SuperNova B3 to JonnyGuru

    Because Aris tests OPP by intentionally overloading the PSU. Jeremy only tests to 100% PSU's advertised capability.

    EVGA Caught Sending Golden Samples of the SuperNova B3 to JonnyGuru

    Are you daft? This PSU was supposed to have been made by Super Flower. Thing is about Super Flower is that they have a very small factory. Outsourcing is VERY common. You do NOT know if a Super Flower PSU is actually built by Super Flower.

    Announcing Cybenetics Power Supply Rating and Certification Agency

    That's not how it works. :D Aris isn't "partnering" with anyone. He has a MASSIVE lab of his own. In fact: His house is a lab with a bedroom attached. He doesn't NEED any "partnership". He does, however, have our (jonnyguru.com and other review sites) support. That's the best thing...

    Announcing Cybenetics Power Supply Rating and Certification Agency

    What do you mean "opt out"? Tom's and TPU are involved because the program is run by the same guy that writes Tom's and TPU's reviews (Aris). TecLab is just promoting it. Not sure what "involvement" you think there is there? What do you expect jonnyguru.com to do?

    AeroCool Project 7 Series PSUs Pictured

    They can't. Some fall off. Computex is more of a "proof of concept" show. That's part of the reason why I love it so much.

    Because the manufacturers shouldn't have to and for most of their customers, it doesn't matter.

    Corsair Announces New SF600W and SF450W Power Supplies

    How do you figure? Right now, on Amazon, the SilverStone and Corsair 450W Gold units are the exact same price ($89.99).

    Corsair Announces New SF600W and SF450W Power Supplies

    Guys... Power density comes at a price premium. Comparing a Gold SFX to a Gold anything else is not an apples to apples comparison. Look at other SFX units on the market. If you don't need an SFX PSU, then don't buy an SFX PSU.

    Corsair HXi Series 1000 W

    You can't monitor or control individual +12V rails on the HXi. The analog IC doesn't have enough channels to do that. You want an AXi to accomplish that.

    Corsair HXi Series 1000 W

    Each "socket" is a rail on the HXi. So to say that each modular port and each rail is monitored is synonymous.

    Corsair RMi Series 1000 W

    Well... you're the one with the thermal camera. I'd love to see you use it on something like this. ;-) But I digress.. it's been tested in a lab with multiple thermistors placed throughout and that busbar hardly gets hot. Agreed, a larger, aluminum heatsink would do a better job. But we're...

    Corsair RMi Series 1000 W

    I'm not convinced you could reduce noise because bigger heatsinks would only dissipate heat, but not remove it. The fan still has to remove the heat from the housing.

    Corsair RMi Series 1000 W

    Harmful? No. But ripple will be around 16 ~ 20mV instead of the results you see here in the review.

    Corsair RMi Series 1000 W

    Right. Jeremy and Tony write the reviews now. That MOSFET doesn't even need to be sinked, TBH. This is 2015, not 1995. That FET is VERY efficient and puts out very little heat, has a very high operating temperature and that BUSBAR is very effective for dissipating any heat there happens to...

    Corsair RMi Series 1000 W

    Well.... that's not 100% true. The RMi already had good ripple suppression without the caps. Yes, better engineering could yield better ripple suppression, but when the Corsair engineers (not CWT's) noticed that the ripple suppression was helped further by putting caps on the ends the same way...

    Corsair RMi Series 1000 W

    Is it still cheating if it actually does what it's supposed to do? It's not like we're playing a game of Monopoly and someone drew two cards. It does? It seems those caps make a bit of a difference. Aris even stated that "Ripple suppression was outstanding!" Legit concern. The ends of...

    SilverStone ZEUS Series Smart PSU Pictured

    The RMi, HXi and AXi allow you to set the fan speeds manually. The RM only allows you to monitor the fan speed.

    Corsair Announces RMi Series 80 Plus Gold Smart PSU Series

    Your use of the word "probably" completely discredits you as someone that doesn't have any kind of biased. I hope people see you post and decide, "Hmm.. maybe this isn't someone I should be listening to for advice over at Overclock.net and everything he says is based on his inherent hate for...

    SilverStone Ready with a 700-Watt SFX-L Power Supply

    Mmm.... Cable managment is still a bitch. It's the depth that kills it.

    SilverStone Ready with a 700-Watt SFX-L Power Supply

    I'm well aware of the dimensions. ;) I've built with both. Including using the SFX-L with a bracket in a case that normally uses an ATX PSU. If you have one or the other installed in the same case, you really don't gain any appreciable space by going from an ATX to an SFX-L. SFX, on the...
