So it's only flaw is poor "DC Output Quality", especially at 100V input? Well assuming we're mining at 120V, what issues could that ~4x the expected variance cause?

Your line voltage isn't going to be specially at 120v.  It will have a voltage drop and varies on the line quality and cabling used.

Also the PSU is more of a 1kW since 83A are dedicated on the 12V rail.

TigerDirect had an EVGA Classified SR-2 1200W for $120 a few weeks ago and that was a MUCH better deal.

From what I read, the voltage output on all the rails was plenty stable. The only blemish I saw on the unit was that it was mislabeled as 80+ Gold when in reality, the unit didn't meet the standards for efficiency. But what do you expect with an 1100 watt psu for $140? The results were almost good enough for gold, and leave no doubts in my mind.

I have a few of these from when they first came out, and I have never once had a problem with them.

I have two of these units in my mining farm. One runs 3x5970s, a 5830, and a mATX / G440. The other runs 10x Bfl singles and a mATX / G440 combo. Neither of them have given me any issues.

Do I really need to say that the unit failed this section, or was that clear already? In case it wasn’t, this was a failure of tsunami-like proportions.

If you want to pay $270 for a good 800 watt PSU, the this ABS 1100 watt unit fits the bill.

Basically, compare it to mediocre 800W units

In that power range, we have:

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold Series RS800-80GAD3-US 800W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - $159.99

SILVERSTONE Strider Gold ST85F-G 850W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified 100% Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - $144.99

OCZ ZX Series 850W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Gold High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom - $149.99

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Hybrid RS-850-SPHA-D3 850W Intel ATX 12V V2.3 & SSI EPS 12V V2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Panel Power Supply with Fan Control - $159.99

Basically this power supply is nothing to write home about.

Also, doesn't this thread belong in Mining -> Hardware?
