    Remember that Seasonic Connect power supply? We have it on our test bench for a review today. It was finally introduced to the market on the 4th of March, after a long wait (they first presented it tw...

    no point in this, as the ATX spec is being processed as something different

    Lost me at "flat black cables".... For the price, they should have included sleeved cables.... ribbon style cables just look tacky....

    So, where are all tree hugging liberals protesting waste of resources and workforce to manufacture anything below golden energy standard? Cool idea with cable thou, especially for custom building. Any 900W models? Anyone knows PSU fit for NAS use, with stable sata power fort like 20HDDs?

    I like the idea but I feel it releases in the wrong era when 3/4 of the cases have side windows, rgb is everywhere etc..

    1) who without rgb, water cooling etc.. would be interested by an exotic psu ? not many
    2) people who build RGB pcs already have way too many cables, controllers and stuff to hide behind the case there's no space left, that entire market is out except for people with giant towers, we have more than enough spaghetti nightmare not to add another thing, I have double the cables seen this picture https://i.redd.it/bk8vpa6iqyt01.jpg at one point I had 80 different cables to connect, same PC non-rgb build time : 30min full rgb build time : 3 days ><
    3) most cables are too long already this gives us even more slack ?
    4) cheap flat cables (like everyone else to be honest even my HX1200i came with them)

    200 euros +- 10, call it whatever you want. And it was in 2018 amidst the mining craze, so prices were inflated for PSU's too. Also, if I can work for 600eur/month and afford it, what do you complain about from Norway? Bought too much cars?

    PS. You can get 1200W psus in our used market for ~100~120eur, no one is buying them, too much money to a Serb.

    A semi-fanless (and <24db at full load) version could be interesting..

    So you are comparing used parts to new hardware parts. OK

    All I have to say, it's worth it getting a platinum PSU, at least Gold since you're gonna have it for 10+ years. I have my CS550M Gold from Corsair and for the price is amazing little thing.

    First you didn't say you bought it some years ago... You "forgot" to mention that. Yes prizes has risen since "day 1" og this PSU. So compare old prizes and new prizes make no sense.

    "for similar price I got Enermax1200W Platimax. So, no thank you Seasonic."

    Why so toxic? Is it too hot today? Love from Norway :)

    that PSU is not made for years, there is no "new price" it's EOL PSU...you are looking at old stock there. If I didn't mention that I bought it used, one would assume I bought it new, why would I compare a price of used PSU to a new PSU? ...
    "For similar price I GOT (PAST TENSE) " ....

    It's really sad that there are brain dead people here trying to start political arguments in a post that has absolutely nothing to do with politics... :(
