Default Seasonic S-12 330 Rev. A1

Hello.

One of my older builds came in for upgrades. It's been running a Seasonic S-12 330 PSU since 2005 so I though maybe it would be a good idea to look around inside the PSU.

All of the caps are UCC KZE series except for the Hitachi? primary and 1 or 2 small Rubycons. None are vented and all have good ESR of .02-.03

Running it on the KeriProductions ATX338 Load tester revealed stable voltages and decent 12v Ripple of 60mv at about 330w total (full load)

The fan barely ramped up even after 15 minutes at this load and voltages/ripple remained OK with only warm exhaust air from the PSU. (The Load Tester was blowing hot)

It went back in the system.
Keri

Delta DPS-400RB

400W for gateway, 120mm temperature controlled yate loon.

Non-APFC, group regulation. Capxon primaries, Ltec, taicon, and capxon secondaries, decent sized heatsinks, big enough coils, good full transient filter. But definitely nothing spectacular like I would expect from delta.

Good range of connectors, 24pin motherboard (non-detachable), 4 pin cpu, 6 pin pci-e, 5 sata power, 2 molex, 1 floppy

All the sata connectors have these nice little black protectors over them. Good because the sata power connector is a edge connector, and could short in your case if they eat a corner of the hard drive bays or some random metal flange.

Rosewill Stallion series RD500-2SB

One of the best built solytechs I have ever seen. Pretty good input filter, all YC caps (they're everywhere!) Good sized heatsinks, Non-APFC, group regulation, 120mm Globe fan temperature controlled.

You get a good range of connectors, if not lacking sata power connectors, 24 pin (detachable), 8pin+4pin cpu connector, 2 sata connectors, 6 molex, 2 floppy, 2 6pin pci-e.

All cables are sleeved and the sleeving goes all the way into the psu's case.

i was cleaning out my closet when i found this old agi (hipro) 235w power supply:



it came from an old proteva with amd k6-2 350mhz, noname mobo, and lots of other shitty parts. obviously came from a chain smoker:



see all the nicotine?

also, notice the second plug in foreground. this was made when at and atx were both in production.

wimpy heatsinks:



rubycon primary caps:



decent amount of secondary caps (sorry this is the last pic- my camera batteries died and im out of aaa's):



more secondaries on board (total of 10 ones with vents , one of those is tiny (dia 4mm))

secondary caps su'scon

no thin wiring

i eventually put the guts in a bestec box, which will soon be home to a hipro-made 250w board with far nicer heatsinks, etc.

Dynex (Huntkey) are not that bad, definitely not like the dirt-cheap generic PSUs, but they're still overrated and overpriced (look it up on Hardwaresecrets.com). Should be good for about 300 watts continuous. But don't go over 350 watts if you don't want to blow up the primary switchers.

Dynex power supplies (Huntkey) are good quality, a step above gutless wonder power supplies, but the price that Best Buy and Future Shop (in Canada) sell them for is too much in my opinion.

The Dynex 400W power supply can deliver up to 437.5W of power at 48.6 degrees Celsius, tested by Hardware Secrets. Since you have the 500W model, I'm assuming that your power supply can deliver at least a little more power than the 400W.

Judging from your computer specifications, I would say that the Dynex 500W power supply in your computer is perfectly fine. Dynex power supplies (Huntkey made) are good.

They just require a recap.

The rocketfish 700W (@40C) Hardwaresecrets reviewed was actually a huntkey titan 650W, but it still delivered 700W @ 40C well in spec.

Order them on mouser or digikey, I like mouser because you can see who the manufacturer is.

Or you can get some old 200W or so newtons that really aren't of much use and pull the caps from those. I say newton because they are deltas that use all rubycon and UCC.

These are what I use mostly

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...me=493-1794-ND - 16v, 2200uf

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...me=493-1529-ND - 16v, 1500uf

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...me=565-1649-ND - 10v, 1500uf

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...me=565-1509-ND - 10v, 2200uf

http://search.digikey.com/scripts/Dk...me=565-1339-ND - 50v, 47uf

The only reason I use 16v, 1500uf's sometimes is because those are what I salvage out of other psu's, if I order them, I just replace them with 2200uf's.
