Should I upgrade my PSU? Seasonic X 750

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I purchased a fully modular Seasonix X Series 750 Watt PSU in May 2012. It has been going strong for 4 years and I have had no signs of problems yet. I don't really know the longevity of these things though. I'm in the process of planning a rig upgrade and want to know if this should be put on the list? It has been connected to a older cyberpower ups for about 2 years.

I will note that this particular unit has the same sku apparently as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151087 based on my newegg order history but my unit is slightly different looking.

Thanks.

That PSU should have several more years in it. When they were new, they were the best of the best. By today's standards, they're just "very high-end". Today's best of the best is better than the X-Series, but you still have quite a damn good PSU. So, 4 years is still fairly young.

I have one, too. It's the model before they made them with the switch for the preferred fan mode, even. It's a little annoying about the fan (that likes to "gasp" for air, rather than ramp up slowly) and the loud click that happens when it turns on/off, but it works flawlessly other than that. Bought it new years ago, and it powers my 1090T/570 Rig without issues still.

The click sound is the relay switch. It's supposed to do that.
