I *thought* the Thermaltake was loud, but even after using the Seasonic it doesnt seem to be the PSU fan that was loud. I heard/read a lot more varied opinions on the ThermalTake than I did the Seasonic, plus I KNEW the Seasonic would be almost silent so I went for it. Looking back it seems like a bad move. The Seasonic was 50.00 more than the ToughPower XT, but again if it turns out it saved my components (not sure if the Thermaltake would or wouldnt have done the same) then maybe its not such a big deal.

This is my first seasonic and I have only heard good things about them overall. Hope everything works out for you man.

Thanks.

Too bad it didnt blow yesterday....the 650W version was on sale at Newegg for 90.00, I coulda "right sized" better for my build and saved a few $$$ in the process.

Thankfully it looks like everything is OK. Machine boots without issue, ran a quick 5 minute Prime95 test and nothing errored out.

Only thing I cant test 100% is my GPU since it needs 2 6 pin connectors but my spare supply only has 1 (400W Corsair, 2 6 pins would be cutting it close), but at least the CPU, hard drive and mobo seem good to go.

Really surprised this happened, but reading a few of the Newegg reviews some people had the same problem (pretty recently too)

Makes me wonder if Im better off RMA-ing it to Seasonic directly, or returning for replacement from Newegg.

Personally for me, if I don't feel comfortable owning something no matter how awesome it is, I will return it. The one feeling that I cannot sleep with is owning something that I do not want. Get what you think will satisfy you above anything.

I have 3 systems, running PSUs from kingwin, OCZ and Seasonic (kingwin being the oldest and seasonic the youngest) and I have not had any issues with any of my PSUs so far.

Oh, no doubt its going back to someone. And since its supposed to be "that good", I wont mind taking a chance on another.

The only reason I question where to send it is if Seasonic happens to have better stock or better testing of replacements before it gets back to me.

Newegg will just pull from stock, but Seasonic might know something Newegg doesnt (bad batch? its interesting someone else had the same problem last week as well), or maybe Seasonic would even just replace it with the newer version 760W)

Also interesting is the fact that I cant see anything wrong inside the PSU, at least from what little view I can get through the vent holes.

All of the caps look intact. There seems to be an awful lot of "white paste" around them, but seeing pics on Jonny Guru's review of the 650W version it just looks like normal thermal paste applied for heat reasons.

The PC is running fine now, but Im starting to worry something from the mobo caused the PSU to give out (but again, I STILL cant see anything wrong with the PSU aside from the fact that it wont power up)

Hey guys, I have a technical inquiry. I know that when you get your Seasonic X, you get two cables for hooking up ONE gpu. However, it was revealed to me by my Moddiy gpu cable that you can play with the pin-out and actually have 1 cable to hook up a single gpu. Ie, it comes from one pcie socket (at the psu end) and splits into TWO 6+2 connectors. It saves you an additional cable (no clue why Seasonic didn't do it themselves). Anyways with that in mind, I'm making my own cable now and I've been thinking, maybe it's also possible to hook up a gpu from two peripheral sockets?
