A bit of advice to other PSU brands: if you have a good manufacturing relationship with Seasonic, don't screw it up. Going from Seasonic to Sirfa is the polar opposite of an upgrade.
right on. it also has modular and a 135mm fan both of which pc power said was a very bad idea. I love how they gave away their oem in the advertising spec "using High Power's smart fan control", sirfa changed their name to high power.

Exactly. While their electrical specs were great, their idea of "Silencer" could be a little suspect before. And now they've got a small form and arguably lesser OEM, but the same power envelope? Doesn't sound promising.
