|OCP||12V: ✗ 5V: 28A (140%) 3.3V: 27.6A (138%) 5VSB: 6.1A (203.3%)|
|OTP||✓ (120-130°C @ secondary side)|
|SCP||12V: ✓ 5V: ✓ 3.3V: ✓ 5VSB: ✓ -12V: ✓|
|SIP||Surge: MOV Inrush: NTC thermistor & bypass relay|
OCP on the minor rails is set properly, while at 5VSB it's a bit higher. The OPP triggering point is fairly aggressive. However, given a properly-configured OTP, we don't worry about the high OPP level.
You get SCP on every rail, the power-good signal is accurate, and surge/inrush current protection are taken care of.

Thank you for the detailed review.Reply
In the transient response test
Advanced Transient Response at 50 Percent – 200ms
the +3.3 pass.
As always, here are the most detailed reviews on the PSU.Reply
Thank you and keep it up!
The only thing that is not quite clear to me. What is the criterion for voltage drop in % to get PASS/FAIL in "Advanced Transient Response Tests"?
You declare that:
"In all tests, we measure the voltage drops." The voltages should remain within the ATX specification's regulation limits. "
For ATX 2.2 we have:
12v - 10%
5v - 5%
3.3v - 5%
5VSB - 5%
However, looking at your reviews, there are often situations where, at <5%, the power supply gets the FAIL mark and vice versa, some at >5% receive PASS
Why is this happening?
Sorry, a typoReply
Of course for 12v - 5%
the limit is 5% however the voltage rails of the PSUs' under test in the majority of cases aren't at the nominal voltages, but higher, so even with 5% deviation voltages go don't bellow the limits that the ATX spec sets (11.4V, 4.75V, 3.14V). Only if a rail goes below those voltage levels it fails. The 5% is just an indication that the ATX provides to specify the voltages above.Reply
Now everything became clear to me.Reply
Dell Inspiron 5675 Desktop, PSU (power supply unit), upgrade. Would this PSU compatible with Dell Inspiron 5675 Desktop. It came with 460W I would like to replace it with PSU between 650 to 750W. I tried at Dell forums but cannot get a clean link which one would be compatible.Reply
I would greatly appreciate if someone could help me out. Thank you kindly in advance:

My Seasonic Platinum began failing under load after only 10 months. Paid cash here in Japan at Joshin - couldnt find reciept - honestly never thought I would need it ever. Seasonic would not help me.?Reply
