    If PSU is working 100% then 82.78 is efficiency at which VS550 works so around 450w is the peak output but my PC total input is around 403w. I think my present PSU is more than enough.

    I've heard from few people that they have received Hydance power supplies instead of Seasonic when they RMA'd their seasonic units, claiming that they are powered by Seasonic. Seasonic might be the oem/one of the OEMs, but insist on getting the unit that you've paid for- either the same or better from the same manufacturer, irrespective of what they say. Just be cautious of switch-and-bait.
