    The latter, there were no reviews at the time, it will be moved to normal priority in the next revision, see changelog.

    Update:  Twisting the +12V sense with a ground wire did not help.  The only thing that solves the problem is removing the +12V sense wire completely from the 24-pin cable.

    US ? Budget SATA (B+M) Team MS30 (only if this is secondary drive), or Inland Premium NVMe.

    RM-x because it seems to be more consistent, i've indeed seen a lot of reports of coil whine on FD ION+, not sure what it's about.

    Seems like the Asus TUF Bronze PSU gets a teardown:

    Juular got a reaction from Abzilla in Can a motherboard "forget" it's bios   
    Manufacturers claim 20+ years of data retention for these chips, so a piece of hardware they're installed on will be obsolete way before a BIOS corrupts by itself unless it'll be randomly struck by a charged particle.

    Not really, it's modern topology (XHY's LLC platform like one used in CM MWE Gold) but really, a pretty budget unit, i wouldn't pair it with 800$ GPU, although i have no idea if it will or will not actually work.

    Don't bother. It doesn't test the most important stuff anyway - ripple, transient response and protections, and even what it does - static load voltage regulation and timings are reportedly come with quite large measurement error. For RPM, i guess you can get a laser tachometer, don't forget to put a piece of reflective tape on one fan blade tho so measurement would be somewhat correct (there still would be some inaccuracy but that's fine really).

    Unless you have a load tester and/or DSO and know how to use them, just a top-down shot of internals and a shot of solder side of the PCB. And if you can do close shots to identify markings, do ones of supervisor IC, bridge diode, APFC, primary and secondary side MOSFETs and DC-DC module if present. A shot of the fan label too. Basically, look at how Aris does it.
    Correct.

    It was tiered there temporarily due to no reviews at the time and similarity to Sirfa #800 platform which had problematic OTP, now when there are review from Aris (from October actually) it will be moved to tier A and it looks like even marked gold.

    No one so far, it's just that an another buyer like you provided us with some internal shots and it's platform from some of more unknown OEMs (looks a tad like Zalman LX made by Hui Cheng, credit to @OrionFOTL IIRC) utilizing group regulated secondary topology which will all end-up in tier D unless there will be review of it showing <5% min to max voltage regulation under crossloads.
    About the magic smoke, it might not show it right away, or even down some years, a bad PSU today is not just about blowing up. Even if the unit has all basic protections functioning and doesn't blow up under advertised usecases, ripple, voltage regulation and transient response are important also and you can't expect that stuff to be any good from such low-end and outdated product. And if ripple or voltage regulation (in static or dynamic load) is extremely bad it might actually show the magic smoke from your other components or they'll just start to act erratically.

    If it isn't plain sleeve bearing then it would likely end up in tier A.

    All info (well, almost) about tiering is in the spreadsheet. It seems that i've just mixed up SX-G lineup, there are 500/650/700W ones that are indeed made by High Power like InWin CS and there are also 600W one made by Enhance which showed some ripple problems, so 600W belongs to tier C while 500/650/700W don't. Although 500/650/700W (as well as both 700 and 750W SX-PT) has 85°C bulk cap while tier A has a requirement for 105°C one so it will be moved one tier down after it'll get split from '=>600W' in the next revision.
    It is.
    Tier A so far.
    It's Focus platform despite what Seasonic calls it but they've pulled this on Prime lineup too already, 550\650W PRIME Gold is based on Focus platform.
    If you look closely you'll see that there are clear distinction between old Focus SKUs (Gold, Plus Gold, Plus Platinum) and new ones (GM, GX, PX). Old ones are in the low priority subtier, while new ones aren't. NZXT E while being based on older platform revision didn't show shutdown issues with AMD Vega probably because it's slightly modified (additional supervisor for multi-rail OCP).
    It isn't about quality, we just don't trust them to ship the same piece of hardware to end users as they gave to reviewers as we have an info on the contrary. There are also very few recent reviews of their products.

    There is, just for that one case Luke mentioned above, but as i said, since there are very few reviews of their units in general, especially recent ones, i would rather assume that they still practice stuff like that than do on contrary, since when it comes to PSUs there are no presumption of innocence. I would still recommend some of their units if you can return them after you confirm visually that it isn't what it's supposed to be (or keep it if it is) but we're playing safe here in the tier list since it's supposed to be fool-proof.
