All of those PSUs are fairly basic and, well, not modern in design. But those two SeaSonics are the better.

Dare I suggest cashing in on the warranty of the G2? The thing has a 7-year warranty. Bad components happen to every company, no matter how reputable

Thanks for your reply. First, the RMA will costs about the price of a new PSU because I live in a far country .. 2nd, the RMA's process will take 6 weeks, that's what they wrote in the email, 6 weeks .. seriously

Okay, nevermind then.

I thought it was one of those things where you didn't want to do it because the first one failed...

Nah, your situation makes sense

Brand is meaningless, you just got unlucky and got a bad unit which can happen to any PSU out there.

I would go for the Seasonic M12II.
