He already quit that business and went to work for Corsair PSU R&D division, so dont expect him to review PSUs anymore, even if he did, he would maybe do that to promote Corsair PSUs with a huge bias because its his new employer now.
He sold the site to Tony maybe a decade ago now? Its been a while. I do recall Jon stating on another site that he now views PSU differently than as a reviewer and sees them more from the manufacturing perspective. I actually think this would be a fresh perspective and may go counter to many peoples ideas on their "oem and part tier lists" .

Because they make their own.
But yes, region is a valid point.
My company doesn't make our own products, we use several factories in Shenzhen to manufacturer them. I work for them because they pay me more money than the guys who make their own products would.

Benchmark Scores Don't know any benchmark. It runs good enough for me.
Don't mean to necro this thread up. Been more than a month Jonnyguru is still not up. I guess it is close now :( taking away many psu reviews from year 2000s. I still remember reading on the power supply review for fsp blue storm where it was called the blueberry at the site. It was a huge part of my growing years.

I hope all reviews are archieve, the forums there have good info too.

It's a shame, I really wanted a review of the Seasonic Prime PX 750 which seem to not exist on the internet. If anybody could point me to one that'd be great considering it's already being shipped to me

Best I could find was one for the PX 650 and it appears to be in Romanian.

My Zalman ZM700-SV power supply (which I only swapped out recently) has no online reviews at all. I have no idea what the ripple is, other than the manufacturer claiming that it meets ATX specifications. That's one of the disadvantages of buying a power supply that isn't popular or is from an obscure brand.

Yeah I'm very interested in the ripple of this thing. But considering it's Seasonic's newest Prime platform I'm not too worried. 12 year warranty...

It cleared 80 plus silver while remaining in spec at room temp way back in 2009. Most likely a group regulated unit so I would not expect tight voltage. Based on their 80 plus test results, the OEM, it most likely shares a similar platform & parts (if not exact) with the CM silent pro M700 and CM i700 that all came out around the same time.

I think you're right. My model definitely has a single 660W 12V rail and I do recall it's an Enhance platform. I opened it up recently and it was running those same heatsinks with Panasonic 105C capacitors on the primary side and Teapo's on the secondary. So the CoolerMaster Silent Pro M700 only has 62mV ripple on the 12V rail at 700W? That's much better than I thought it would be!
