The issue that I had was getting the cables out of the pins and I broke a couple. I ordered a new set from ModDiy.com and sleeved them myself. It was a little painful, but I'm happy with the results. Will post pics later.

Update - Adding pics of the moddiy cables sleeved. Please note this is my first time sleeving so don't expect perfection. The reason I use longer length of heatshrink was to make sure that I can get the sleeve on the double cables properly (as my previous attempts the sleeve kept sticking out). used 20mm of heat shrink compared to the standard 15mm

Expect my X-850 tomorrow. Good deal from Newegg on black-Friday, I guess. $139, $119 after rebate - even though an older model now I think it is still a good price. They are sold out now.

Looking forward to unwrapping it tomorrow biggrin.gif

I've got an x-650 in my Ivy Bridge rig, and an x-1250 in my AMD rig.
The power supplies have been remarkable! Am truly happy with them
Will post some pics, I've got the x-650 single-sleeved, looks amazing.

And it is the newer 2012 model. I was expecting closeout on the older model (that is what was pictured). So I am impressed that Seasonic has listened. This newer model has

better power characteristics (seasonic claims +/- 1%)
toggle switch for hybrid or Normal fan
Mix of flat/round cables like their Corsair brethren
6 instead of 4 PCI-E
10 instead of 8 SATA power cables
7 year warranty

All complaints on the previous series that have been addressed.

Tested it with PSU tester, now about to install it. Here are some pics:



I had an Antec True Power New 650W (which is a Seasonic build). Moving up to a MSI GTX 660 Ti I got coil whine (a high pitch buzz/squeal) under load. With the X-850 that is gone.

I also seem to get more stable and somewhat higher overclock - I am verifying that.

Anyhow, my 'puter is even quieter now - and neater routing of cables. biggrin.gif

BTW, can I join biggrin.gif

Cheers

Hi! I would like some opinions on which of these psu to buy, a Seasonic X-760w or Seasonic P-660w.

My first choice was the x-760w but then I saw the P-660w, both are almost in the same price bracket. I'm just worried if the 660w would suffice with my rig(see below)

Here's my build:

Processor: Intel i5 3570k
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Gene
Ram: Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer or Corsair Dominator GT 2x4gb 1600/1866
Gpu: Asus 7950 DC2T 3gb version 1
HDD: Seagate Barracuda XT 2tb (planning to add one in the future)
80gb (for torrent)
SSD: Samsung 830 128gb (also planning to add one in teh future)
Psu: Seasonic X-760w or Seasonic P-660w
HSF: gonna stick with the stock for awhile, my budget is tight right now but maybe I would go for an H80i? any suggestions?
Case: Silverstone TJ08-E
