They still are in many cases. To my knowledge, they don't make many crap units. Even their OEM units seem fine.There's a reason why Seasonic was/is the 'go to' psu.
Clearly you've never heard of Flextronics, and even CWT makes some on the high end (RMx, RMi etc)
Higher 80plus certification doesn't mean anything, UNLESS it is a PSU platform that we already know is good anyhow. For example, a Seasonic Prime platinum unit is going to be a better product than a Seasonic Prime Gold unit, because we already know the Prime platform is very good, and platinum efficiency along with it shows there are some improvements internally to account for the higher efficiency.
If the platform isn't good to begin with, whether or not it has an 80plus certification is irrelevant.
PRIME Titanium/Plat are the only Seasonic high ends that I can think of. And the Super Flower Leadex II/III.But the vast majority are a combination of Seasonic or SuperFlower based platforms.
Corsair, possibly CM or TT (I don't know if they have a dedicated PSU team or not) do more than "slap a label on a CWT/GW unit". They work with the OEM's to design the PSUs.Corsair or Evga, TT or CM doesn't make a single psu, they get Greatwall or CWT or others to do that and slap a paint job on the outside.
Considering you are using above average gold units in your statement, limiting high end Seasonic to just the Prime Titanium series,Clearly you've never heard of Flextronics, and even CWT makes some on the high end (RMx, RMi etc)
Is really kinda redundant. Just adding in the Focus and Focus Plus platforms adds more than a few, not to mention the older high end Seasonics including the SFX listings.PRIME Titanium/Plat are the only Seasonic high ends that I can think of. And the Super Flower Leadex II/III.
