They have an HX520 as well.rpsgc wrote:Yes, Corsair HX620.ATWindsor wrote:Isn't corsair(?) or one of the other RAM-companies comming out with a rebadge of thei seasonic, without the extra fan? That might be worth a try.
At Newegg, HX520 is $129.99, Seasonic M12 500 is $139.99. Pretty much the same deal. I found one thing off, the Corsair reports three 12V rails @ 40A while the Seasonic reports four @ 38A. Kind of odd.
Seasonic's sticker for the 500W shows 38A total on the 12V circuit = 456W, while the Corsair shows 480W over the 12V range, which is 40A. The Corsair has a slightly higher rating (520W) so I suppose that's where the extra watts come from, but it's odd that they're claiming more rails on the lesser-rated supply. After reading jonnyGURU's page about the M12, it seems even more silly, as they're pretty much lying about the multiple rails anyway. For those that didn't read, Seasonic removed the multiple rails due to high-end video cards overloading the 18A allocated to their rail. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it'd be nice if they weren't being slightly deceptive about it. Power-wise, it'll still deliver whatever you need, but, as jonny points out, you lose some of the goodness of multi-rail.
