No it was not a silencer it was a Turbo Cool.
Ahh fair enough
Hmmm, would there ever be a possibility to talk about the work conditions in the factories?
I suppose companies would make an effort to present it well to you so it'd be difficult to get an accurate idea of the conditions...
The only hair I've ever seen is coarse.
I paid about $150 for it i believe. I was introduced to the brand by a engineer who used to make his own MCI/VL/PCI cards. He told me to never ever use anything else way back then in 1995. I should have listened to him lol.
I regret not buying a HX-620, but the Antec True Power Trio 550w, is still decent for my uses..
BTW is that a Seasonic built one?
It's like most other reputable ones to be honest - they are migrant workers that stay in dorms right next door. They are educated to do the job they do and they even get a party or something every so often I was told.
You can't really judge it by Western standards, it's a whole different kettle of fish when the level of education is so low and the country of a billion and a half is dealing with 5-10 percent unemployment.
Fair enough, I've just read a truly horrific report on conditions in a Chinese keyboard factory that put 'decent manufacture conditions' on my priorities when buying a product.
Having the M12 500W in my PC since Feb 2007 I've never had any hiccups or anything. Next PSU will be Seasonic again I guess.
The article was a very interesting read as well.
I'd rep++ you Bindi, but you don't really need it, do you?
The Trio Truepower series, Truepower New and Earthwatts are made by Seasonic.
it's the usual asian stuff.. the boss (bolo) walks in and steals shangs wife on the line.. shang finds out and chases him around with a knife.. this kind of stuff happens all the time- it's way different than western culture.. what we consider bad conditions doesn't even apply- you would go insane over there
ah sweat shops at work but seriously some of those female works look pretty cute
Really enjoyed this article, briiliant pictures.. very interesting to know whos producing the components for my PC.
^_^ no problem! Glad you enjoyed.
yeah pbs ran a similar walkthrough of gigabytes factory back in 2006.. was really interesting shuffle.. you might like it- it was called How Motherboards Are Made: A Gigabyte Factory Tour
dunno if they have the video hosted somewhere.. found it documented on google
and I heard on the weekends the girls dress up as video game characters and dance at conventions j/k but they live in dorms like a seasonic
We did Gigabyte, MSI, In-Win and Corsair previously
you guys have the best jobs bindi.. *envy
yes the HX series from corsair is seasonic built, i think by the look of one of the cables
I had a friend who built a lot of computers for his business and always used Seasonic PS. So I tried S12s in several builds and nothing I have done phased them, they just keep running quietly. I always look inside all the stuff I buy and check the parts and assembly quality and have never seen a problem with Seasonic, a few others I have used were a little lacking, but now, I just use Seasonic.
It would be, if the workers do not complain about low payments and accept a hard stool to sit on all day
