It has come to our attention that, unfortunately, a previous review roundup published here at bit-tech was based partially on incorrect data, and it's only right that we make our readers aware of this and apologise for it.
In September, we published our 1200W PSU Roundup 2014
, in which we incorrectly reported the results in the noise test under 500W load conditions on this page
for two PSUs: the Seasonic Platinum Series 1200W and the EVGA SuperNova P2 1200W.
We reported the EVGA PSU's noise output in this test as a noisy 48.6 dB(A), when it was in fact a whisper-quiet 18.8 dB(A). We also reported the Seasonic PSU's result as 42.9 dB(A) when it was actually 21.7 dB(A). We discovered the incorrect results today, and have already updated the original article to reflect the new data. In particular, you'll find that the scores for both affected power supplies have been increased, and the EVGA SuperNova P2 1200W is now a power supply that we consider worthy of our Premium Grade award. We encourage our readers to take a second look
at the roundup now that it has been updated.
We take hardware testing very seriously here at bit-tech, but despite our fastidious approach, mistakes can happen. This is one of those times, and we can only assure you that we will of course do our utmost to prevent this from happening again, as it does a disservice to our brand, our partners' brands and most importantly to you, our readers. We hope you understand and accept our apologies for this slip-up.
