It just dawned on me, ping me when you stop nitpicking on a typo, lame escuse to arglue really. :p :slap:

Chears from the thrown room.
Perhaps it was a typo (not buying it reading subsequent posts), but it changed the whole meaning, that typo. Next time I'll assume you dont mean what you posted and pick a tense. Lollolololololololol

I also dont understand why anyone would care what they did in the past anyway. For at least the last decade, you can blindly grab a seasonic and they are good+ units, period. ;)

If that is wrong, you should find some links to support what you said. The honus isn't on me/us to prove they are all at least good+...

What you said is true for the majority of psu lines...I agree. But seasonic, afaik for the last decade and change, is different.

So I was looking at the PSU list ( see sig) and there they were, not sure how old those lower rated models might be.

Not saying they are completely wrong, but it even states tier rating is based on "opinion".
And because i was looking for a replacement couple month back, i researched corsair/seasonic/evga, and read multiple reviews stating the evga g/p/t 2/3 were same/better than an Ax (minus the link), yet arent even listed here (3rd) or in the lower A- (2nd series) grade.

Why is the first psu I looked up that is labelled 'bad' on that list, isn't? Lol

I'd bother to check the others, but, college football and beer... go buckeyes!

Edit: our list is old, but... based on reputable reviews. ;)

Link that. :)
