  • Summary: Worth the extra cash. I had a cheap power supply with a higher power rating that this outperforms. No coil whine when really pushing the graphics card and processor.

Modular, quiet, awesome!

Jamie L. Henderson, Amazon
1 September 2014
  • Summary: Awesome modular design. Awesome variable fan to keep the volume of the system low unless it's really working. Awesome power supply. I would buy this again without hesitation. In fact, I did when i built a friend's system recently.

Top notch power supply

Darrell Cramphorn, Amazon
12 June 2014
  • Summary: I put a lot of research into this before purchasing a power supply. The Seasonic units are among the best. The unit was packaged wonderfully, plenty of connection cables for the motherboard, video card, and other items. Installed fine. I was so impressed I ordered a second unit later for my second PC build without hesitation.

Flaky Customer Service and Products

Maria Martinez, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: First one failed shortly after a year; a capacitor just randomly blew up. Aside from it blowing up within a foot of me, the only thing I can complain about was that it suffered from coil whine. At that point, I was still willing to trust Seasonic for further PSU purchases. I filed for an RMA and received the replacement within a week. Wow. I figured, Seasonic must really care about its customers. Wrong. The replacement I received was a dud as well.

Awesome power supply

Dom9360, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: First time buyer of Seasonic and I'm very impressed. Works like advertised and I feel confident based on the observation of how well the unit looks and the quality of the contents included; the module cables even come with their own carrying case (minor, I know, but adds to value). I used this on a server setup with the non-hybrid option enabled.

Ferrari of the PSU world. Fantastic Ultra-silent Power Supply. Extremely high quality.

David P. "David", Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: Replaced the PSU in my 6 yr old Alienware gaming PC because I got tired of how loud it was. Seasonic is completely silent. In HYBRID mode, the PSU will decide whether it needs to run the fan, which it rarely does on a system comprised entirely of SSDs. The impressive packaging tells you this is a high end part. Ample cabling and even comes with plastic ties to tidy things up (nice touch). I couldn't be more impressed with this beast.

Great High Power Single +12V Rail PSU

Scott R. Sideleau "Hardware Guru", Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: This has been a great high power PSU with a single +12V rail design that has survived overclocking my i7-2600K and feeding a power hungry GeForce GTX 470 and a handful of high capacity hard drives. I've recently upgraded to a GeForce GTX 770 (4-GB) and although the idle power draw has dropped, the peak power draw can still be quite high. This PSU has kept up with my demands and shows no signs of failing yet.

Silent, Reliable, What More Could You Ask For?

Jason Solfisburg, Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: Seasonic continues to be one of the best PSU manufacturers around. With power supplies, you tend to only notice them only when they've gone wrong, and I can say this has not been the case with my X-850. By keeping up a steady supply of current to my system, my Seasonic has become the silent backbone behind my rig. It's so quiet that I'll sometimes even forget that there's a fan on there! They'll continue to be a highly recommended brand!

Great Power Supply

Rod Wierenga, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: I put my first system together using the ASUS Maximus VI Gene mobo, the Intel i7-4770k, 16GB(2x8) Corsair Vengence 1600Mhz memory, Seasonic 850w PS and the Silverstone Tek mid-tower case. It worked the first time I turned it and performs as advertised. I plan to add the EVGA GeForce GTX 760 graphics card and there should be plenty of power.
