The Ultra series is an update of last year's Flagship PRIME models. Key differences according to the Seasonic press release [seasonic.com]:
  • Seasonic has included a PSU tester in the box that will let consumers perform a quick and easy jump start on the power supply. When a system is not working properly, it can be particularly difficult to tell the difference between a faulty power supply and other components. With the help of the PSU tester, users will be able to verify whether the new power supply is working properly.
  • Each PRIME Ultra Series power supply will also ship with a SATA 3.3 adapter to support the "Power Disable" (PWDIS) feature of the newer, high-capacity hard drives. This is an important feature for people who are planning to use the PRIME Ultra to power hard drives of a smaller-scaled server at home or in an office.

    Some design updates of the PRIME Ultra power supplies further optimize usability.
  • One of the most noticeable of the upgrades is that the inline capacitors on the cables were removed, which takes away from the bulk and improves cable management inside the system.
  • The new 180 degree SATA connectors will ensure more flexibility and easier installation.

140mm length is also more compact than the Flagship PRIME series, while still retaining a 135mm FDB fan.

The PRIME Ultra 750W Gold [newegg.com] is also on sale for $89.99 after $20MIR.

I would get the 550w one but STILL waiting for a seasonic rebate from 2 months ago that looks like they lost the forms.

If the rebate comes from Newegg, it shouldn't have any issue if you have done everything right.
I worried if 550w would be sufficient for 8700k oc + GTX 1080 Ti. Any thoughts?

I saw someone else post that their 7700k OC to 5ghz (1.36V) + 1080Ti with a +180Mhz offset pulled 430W as measured by a Kill a watt meter. This PSU would be fine for that load. You'll need to check to see how much more your 8700k pulls over the 7700k while OCed to determine for sure for yourself.

For non-overclocked builds this would be just fine.

It is enough but the most efficient load of these PSU's are at 50%.

You're fine probably. I did a Asrock mb rebate. Checked 4 months in. With my rebate number and email. And it said THEY STILL HAVNT RECEIVED IT. 1 week later I got my rebate check. About 4 months after. 3 months is the normal.

Does SATA 3.3 adapter to support the "Power Disable" (PWDIS) feature of the newer, high-capacity hard drives mean that I can use shucked easystore white label drives?

I did a search on the link on rebate and said there was no info on me.Thing is I did get a email about it 2-3 weeks ago saying it was being processed but I forgot to save the email prior to doing a format on computer.
