Summary: I've had the power supply for a few months now and I haven't had any problems so far, I think it'll last a very long time. I have it running on the hybrid mode with an overclocked processor and a 780ti, the power-supply is completely inaudible.
Nice performing PSU, slightly bad on the accessories side

Summary: It's a really nice unit. Can be turned pretty quiet using a switch, which tells it to go fanless, when there is a possibility. Good power capacity. A lot of connection options. A little bad side to it is included cables. I suppose each vendor is free to choose the connector type on the PSU side (SATA connect of course should be standard!). So all the cables are detachable, with a unique connector type. And I have this mid-tower case, which is pretty tall.
Summary: I bought 2 pcs from this Seasonic Platinum PSU. But 1st one failed just after 1 week use. I don't know how to return and exchange this item since Amazon doesn't show any tip on this item. Now I'm going to try 2nd one since I don't have any other choice.Besides cables look cheap. But my other Corsair HX1050 which bought from Amazon still working even after 1 month and cables look more professional. I'll never buy Seasonic PSU again and don't recommend anyone.
Summary: This is an excellent power supply. However the 8 pin motherboard cable needs to be about four inches longer for proper routing in an ATX case. This cable would not work in a larger case without some type of extension.
Hi pitch noise, if you want quiet PSU, dont buy this one
29 January 2014
Summary: Installed PSU in new system, noticed high pitch whine. Did a quick search on google and found this is a common problem (there's even a video on youtube where you can hear the annoying sound). Bought this PSU because its suppose to be quiet. It is not.
Summary: Goes well with anything between 3770k upwards to 4930k, and supports amd too, but the parts you get if your a international customer will supply different wall cords. (just don't use your kettle cord. lol) To really show how this item was delivered, i live in australia, and the team at amazon delivered this thing better then anything, and that's over 16000k away. applaud their service. Now this products epic. the build qualitys far and beyond anything.
Summary: I was hesitant for a few reasons, price and worry about coil whine. I am glad I purchased this unit. Build quality is exceptional and this thing doesn't even make a sound. I have no coil whine or maybe my old ears just can't hear it. One guy reviewed it whining about the cables were to stiff to bend to attach. Really?? Buy this PSU and you wont be disappointed.
Pros: Super efficient, packaged great, ample power, very quiet (as in can't hear it)
Cons: None except maybe price, but you get what you pay for (stick with none)
Amazing quality, will last years and multiple builds.

Summary: This PSU screams quality. I've owned some Corsair and OCZ PSU and this is my first Seasonic. I wanted something quite and efficient and this PSU exceeded my expectations. The best part is, the fan only turns on when your rig draws high load. Otherwise, the fan stays off and the PSU is passively cooled, completely silent. Yes it is an expensive PSU but since buying this over a year ago, it already lasted me 2 upgrades and 1 new build.
Summary: I have owned many power supplies over the years from different manufacturers (this being my first Seasonic) and this has so far been the best one in terms of easy of install, fit and finish, noise level (near silent) and clean power.
