Sweet. I've been on the fence about wether I should replace my hx850i to accommodate my 3090 Kingpin Hydrocopper but didn't want to fork over almost $600 for an hx1000i. This is perfect, now I can shoot for a 15.9k in port royal without worrying about popping my PSU.

They also have the Focus Gold 1000w for $170 if you don't want to spend $300.

Thats a nice PSU, I revently picked up the 700W fanless version of that and really like it. Newegg has it for about $275 right now.

Avoid the "Focus Gold xxx (any of them)" if it says "Focus Gold xxxxW" on the box as the product name.
This is the older unit with the transient OCP issues!
The one you want is the "Focus GX" (Gold) or "Focus PX" (Platinum) of XXXW.
Pay close attention to this distinction!

Crazy that we are excited when anything is in stock at MSRP. Thanks forcthe heads up though, I bought a placeholder EVGA 750 about 6 months ago because they had nothing else in stock.

Isn't that the older model that had issues?

I'm going to say that b&h probably just hasn't updated their stock numbers. They have been out of stock multiple times so you are getting a new psu and not one that has been on the shelf. Unless seasonic is still making the older model I wouldn't worry about it. Case and point, I ordered a Prime Ultra Gold 750w psu (old model) and got the Prime GX 750w (new model) back in Decemenber. The are still showing they are selling the old Prime Ultra. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/prod...nics_ssr_750gd2_prime_ultra_750w_80_plus.html

I have a Focus Gold + 850FX. Looking at the table you posted, I'm guessing that's GX before it was rebranded...? I remember this debacle happening a while ago and for some reason I remember thinking it wasn't an issue in my case, but I don't remember why.

I don't know if some of the pre rebranded units have OCP updates or not. It's possible some units made before the rebrand were updated. I really don't have this information. I'm not a PSU person. You should email Seasonic and ask them, if you know the serial and part number.
