Wow! Thanks for that! I didn't know anywhere in the UK that stocked the new S12s.mattg82 wrote:Edit
XCase now have s12-430,500 & 600 in stock.
£57 for the 430W is a damn good price too IMO.
I'm not a big fan, either. They seem to get in the way for certain applications (like the 3.5" drive bays). I've found that a quick slice of a box cutter can make quick work of them, though, as can simply bending them back with a pair of needlenose pliers.lenny wrote:The easy grip 4 pin molex doesn't plug into my 9800 Pro - the grips get in the way.

Translation if needed:Vi stopper nok helt med salget af Seasonic strømforsyningerne, da vi simpelthen ikke kan sælge nok i forhold til, hvor mange vi hele tiden skal tage hjem.
Så med mindre, at du kan tage 100 stk, så er det ikke nogle vi tager hjem.
We will probably stop selling Seasonic psus as we simply can't sell enough in comparison to how many are needed to be ordered.
So unless you can buy 100 units, we wont be taking home s12-430.
From my experience I would say yes; my S12-430 (Yate Loon fan) spins at 720rpm (I'm yet to see it speed up any further). The Nexus 120mm fan I have spins at 1000rpm @ 12V and 480rpm @ 5v. So 7V might be a good compromise.perplex wrote:noting the increase in noise from the new Adda fan, would the Nexus 120mm provide equal/sufficient airflow if it was used to replace the Adda fan? or is it not worth it
Something is telling me that your airflow in your case is messed up if there is that much warm air coming out the back of the PSU. this means that the fan is blowing the air INTO the case, instead of out of it due to its lower fan speed.
I would check to make sure you don't have blocked intakes somewhere in the case...
Not really. The spec states what the voltage at the output of the PSU should be. Not on the motherboard. As Devon already said, there's no need to worry if your system is stable, and you cannot trust the internal MB voltage monitors to tell you much about the PSU -- you must measure the voltage AT the PSU output connectors while it is loaded. In the lab testing, we measure the 12V and 5V lines on an unused 4-pin molex output lead from the PSU; the 3.3V measure we get off a terminal on the PSU load tester that's right next to the 20-pin ATX connector.Oliver wrote:Thanks for the explaination Thanks for the explaination Devonavar
But clearly the system interacts with the el cheapo power supply to give a 3.3v reading closer to specification.
Yes.Oliver wrote:Are you saying then ,that the El Cheapo power supply might in actuality have a 3.3v line reading at the output point something quiet a bit above 3.3v so that after the motherboard processes that line, it comes in at 3.25v?
1) We don't use a motherboard in the PSU testing.But out of curiosity, what were the motherboard readings in your test system with your sample? And was there a significant difference between the Japanese Capacitor version and the Chinese capacitor version?And is their any advantage if the motherboard voltage readings are as close to 12 and 3.3 as possible?
"Countless"? Surely you exaggerate.thetoad30 wrote:I disagree. Voltage regulation IS important for a power supply. I have had countless computers crash and lock up just because the power supply could not regulate voltage at load. These were heftily rated power supplies, but because they were cheap and didn't regulate properly they crashed the computer.
Perhaps I should have been more specific and asked how the PSU voltages measure. Obviously, crashes do happen from out of spec voltages, but Oliver's voltages are not measured properly to determine whether they're in spec or not.Devonavar wrote:so long as your system is stable, what does it matter what the PSU voltages are?
No, I don't exaggerate.Devonavar wrote: "Countless"? Surely you exaggerate.
