    After a few beers and reading your article, I was convinced I needed one of these late last night :wideyed:. LOL. While I was at it, I also ordered a EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Hybrid Waterblock Cooler for my 1080Ti FE. CC was hurting last night after that episode. Thx Kyle you bad influence you! :p

    Must have my [H]ardware purchases are fueled by bad decisions.....
    Like "Ooohhh!!!! I wannit"
    Then I have to find a use for it.
    Then I have to get an extra part to get that working.
    And it comes with some extra Hardware that I don't need...
    Then I repeat.
    It's cyclical and expensive!!!!!
    But I'm addicted.... Lols

    I am a huge Seasonic fan. I just purchased a pair of 850W Focus plus Gold's for $92 after MIR to replace a failed SS x850w Gold (my first SS unit to ever fail although I did Eun this at 95% load 24/7 for 4,5 years) and a cheaper Corsair unit.


    Comosrii the FP+ to the x850, I see where Seasonic cut corners to svae some money. It's mainly in the package which I don't care about it, but they also went to a cheaper 2005 ers type of cable/sleeving vs the x850W Gold. Granted the FP+ was $35 cheaper not counting the sale, but I was a bit surprised. As long as they give me their excellent rated power I'm still happy.

    If you run any psu like that it means your are doing it wrong and are asking for premature failures.

    Just realized that was a typo and supposed to be 75%.

    I'm with ya. I never buy new stuff based on need. My current rig plays games just fine and I'm still aching to buy a new GPU.... And a new monitor. My 27" screen has been flawless since I first turned it on.... But a 32" would be better lol! And since 1080 is too low for a 32 I'll need a 1440 and since 1440 is too much res for a 290x....I obviously need a new GPU... It's kind of a sickness.

    That's hilarious. I do the same thing from time to time. Then I usually wake up in the morning and I'm like "OH SHIT! I hope I can cancel!!! :p
