17 October 2012
Summary: I've purchased 9 or 10 power supplies, including a few other modulars, since I began building my own PC's over a decade ago and this is by far the best one I've ever used. It's actually my second Seasonic X series, having purchased an X-650 two years ago and why I bought another. It looks good, performs the best I've ever seen a power supply perform with voltages dead on whether at idle or load, and it makes no noise at all.
Pros: - Extremely well made., - Completely silent., - Gold rated., - Long cables, - Delivers what it's supposed to.
Summary: Bought it on sale for $119 a few months ago, it's probably overkill for my system (3770K, 16GB DDR3, GTX 670, SB X-Fi, DVDRW, 2x HDD, 1x SSD, 4x case fans, 2x CPU fans -- guessing 350W at load) but at that price it was a steal, tons of headroom for SLI. Fits nicely in my Corsair 550D case, the 8-pin EPS12V aux CPU power cable routes nicely behind the MB tray without an extension, all other cables are nice and long as well and sleeved in black.
Pros: * Quiet, don't think I've heard it yet or the fan has been so quiet I haven't noticed (my max load is probably 350-360W), * Great efficiency and ripple control per reviews, * Awesome build quality/packaging, * Long cables included
Summary: This is a great PSU especially when bought for the sale price. It is quiet and is fully modular and it is 80 Plus Gold. It has plenty of cables and they were easily long enough for my 500R case. Will be buying another one when on sale again. Definitely would recommend to others.
Pros: It is a Seasonic. Very quiet. 80 Plus Gold. Has plenty of cables and is fully modular
Summary: I picked this up on sale and I couldn't be happier with this PSU. I shopped around and when it came down to it this was the best choice. Exceptional build quality, very quiet operation, and a treat to unbox and use for my latest build.
Summary: This psu is highly recommended if you care about the acoustics of your pc. Seasonic also has great reputation for making solid power supplies. The regular price is a bit steep for a 760w unit, but when on sale at 120$ its a steal.
Pros: dead silent, fan only spins up at >20% load, 80+ gold, japanese caps
Cons: cables are not as pretty as the corsair AX series, price
Summary: Build quality is solid. It's gold80 certified Picked this up for $120 on sale to replace an aging PSU. This thing is great - voltages are super stable, no matter what. This is a premium PSU, and it shows in the voltages as well as the craftsmanship. It's worth the $200 price tag but if you can get it for $120, do it. This PSU has been verified as 80 gold certified. This deals with efficiency in terms of power draw and waste.
Pros: - Quiet, - well built, feels sturdy and solid, - Maintains steady voltage under load, or not
Cons: - Price is the only one. It's worth $200, no question but if you can get it on sale, definitely do it.
Summary: I got this on sale for $129, which made me buy the unit. Seasonic is arguably the best PSU manufacturer and to get a 760W Gold rated PSU for this price was outstanding. Even at full price, you are still getting top notch performance for your dollar. This is powering my 7970 GPU. When playing BF3, I don't even hear the PSU. Very happy with this purchase.
Pros: Fully modular, Seasonic reliability, Very quiet, Gold rated, Delivers clean power
Cons: I hate to be so picky but, they put the product information sticker on the side that faces the window in my case. It looks kinda ugly and would have been better put on the other side. That's about all I can complain about really, and is only a minor cosmetic issue.
