    Mine is dying right now and needs replacing. Despite that most people don't appear to have had trouble with them and they are very quiet. Trouble is i bought mine from xcase and their rma procedure looks iffy - just send it to them with a filled in form that you print off their site, no rma number or anything like that.

    It does appear that seasonic returns are handled by the site you purchased them from rather than direct with the manufacturer so whilst i'd still recommend this psu, get it from a site which you trust for returns.

    Umm, are you sure the ambient temperature is the same? 10C seems an awful lot for just a PSU swap.

    The Fan in my old power supply was knackered - so I don't think its that suprising - and the Seasonic seems to run cooler than the old one? Ambient temperatures about the same - reading 18C by the thermometer I have.

    Still a big difference, unless the fan on your old power supply is the only exhaust... is it?

    Nope, but it was thermally throttled and dying - so it seems to have made quite a big difference...otherwise other factors are the same - all at idle after being left on overnight, hell even the heating has been set the same. Not exactly lab conditions, but hey.
