Mistake in the article ( Initial pricing is set at 4.90 ) They seems to be great PSU for a pretty fair price IMO. It would be nice to know soon who make them. Seasonic CWT well you see my point.

Seventeam isn't necessarily a bad call. They make some good PSUs and some bad ones. Coolermaster just decided to pick the bad ones.

on a positive note I like to see company going single rail. I don't like to have 2 rails with big GPU load with the 2 other rails not use on a 4 rails PSU. It must unbalance something for sure. but the Silverstone Striper ( like Sly said , in an other post ) look a better single rail

P.S. @ ZERO ... we know it's a strider

There are advantages and disadvantages to a multi-rail design, but with modern PSUs, it literally does not make any difference as far as usability goes. The rails will be balanced out so that you will not be overloading any of them.

Also, many if not most "multi-rail" designs are just split single-rail designs with individual OCP limits.
