[Official] Seasonic Platinum Series Owners Club - Page 58

post #571 of 1304
Yeh.. so what I was saying is.. there's an 860 version in the regular size. It's listed on Seasonic's website:
Code:
Platinum-860 (SS-860XP2 Active PFC F3).

Probably the best one to get if you don't need more than 860w. That's because it's the regular size which can fit pretty much in any case, whereas the "big" 860 can't. The clear downsize though, is the lesser gpu ports. smile.gif

I didn't realize there was a size difference, when I purchased this it was the only Platinum PSU other than the SS-1000 that Seasonic had. I can't even find information on the SS-860XP2 on an english language website.

I figured some may not notice this, hence posting about it. It's on seasonicusa.com. It's a confusing thing, but if you look closely there's a page for 860-1000 and another for 660/760/860, so it's not the same 860. Tricky little Seasonic. smile.gif

If you google for the XP2 model, you will find some japanese sites with it. It looks exactly the same as 660/760, only it's labeled "860".

Yeah, and I can find box dimensions but not dimensions of the actual PSU. I guess the size could matter in a micro atx or HTPC applications.

The 660/760/860 are all exactly the same size as X-560/660/760/850. Ideal size for most rigs.

There are actually 2 860watt variants of the Seasonic Platinum

The original that came out with the 1KW version P860 XP (link), and the newer standard sized one that came out with the 660/760/860. These are the XP^2s (link).

Was quite confused myself at first when I was shopping around for a PSU...

Based on some of the reviews I've been reading (the 660 watt XP2 and the 1KW XP), it may seem that seasonic has improved on the regulation/ripple going from the first generation XP to the second gen XP2.

Edit: seems the seasonic usa page is down for now (at least for me)

Greetings.

I actualy made a thread to ask this question, didnt notice this Thread existed lol..owell ill ask here also.


Q: Does the Seasonic Platinum 1000w have ANY issues with coil whine?
Are there any chances of recieving one with coil whine or are they all very well quality checked for it ?

I ask becouse im going to be going SLI GTX 780's with my current rig. My CPU (3930k 4.6ghz 1.36v OC) accoridng to AIDA 64 can pull between 250 and 300w at full load. The 780's together have a TDP of 500w, so i need 800w at minimum. Giving head room for GPU OC'd , other devices, and enough spare wattage to not run at max all the time, im looking at 1000w.


Cheers

1. I haven't heard any complains with coil whine on the 1Kw model. Mine does now whine at all as well. I've heard the issue goes with the 860w model, but the first version only.

2. 1 Kw is way too much for SLI 780's. I have had SLI 470's and Xfire 7950+7970's working just fine on a 750w PSU. The wattage you're calculating is based on a 100% load, which unless you're running BOINC/Folding, it shouldn't be that high. Also, even if it is 500w, you have a 250w headroom for anything else, which should be well within what a 3930k OC'd can eat, and anything else won't even consume even 20-40w of power altogether.

I went with a 1 Kw PSU because i plan to trifire later on, and i run BOINC, where my computer is never under 100% load. Add to that i watercool so everything i have is OCed to the moon and back, and you get a massive power need.
