Time for another information thread and this time i want to talk about XFX

Phaedrus did talk about XFX 3 years ago but alot has happend since

His old thread can be found here https://www.overclock.net/t/699203/on-xfx

Anyway before i move on i will say something and that is XFX naming scheme is messed up!

Some models has had name changes so no one can really figure out what is what

Enough talk lets start and first of is the non modular 80 plus bronze XFX units which are modified Seasonic S12II units

These are know best as the Core Edition but also as the Pro series as well as the TS series

Next is the XFX TS (gold rated) series this is a rebranded Seasonic S12G which again is a non modular version of the good old Seasonic G

Next is the XFX XTR

The 550 / 650 and 750 watts are a modified and improved Seasonic G, by modified and improved i mean its been made fully modular and have an on/off bottom for a hybrid fan mode added

The 850 and 1050 watts XFX XTR units are Seasonic KM3 based units like the older Black Edition series was.

The 460 and 520 watts are based on the Seasonic FL2 platform and the 1000 watts is based in the Seasonic XP3 platform

Same KM3 platform as Seasonic use for the X and Platinum

The Cooler Master V also uses the KM3

I got many more threads like these you can find a link under my sig if you want to look at the others

The XFX 850 above made a world of difference in my system.. I can now OC my crossfired 7950's without the system shutting down as with my old PSU. The flat modular cables make for a nice clean install and comes with more of them than I will ever need.

Thanks to Shilka and others for all the help with this and other questions I had leading up to this purchase..

shiika you are a legend. Not only do you already help out OCNers with PSU questions left right and centre, you also start up guides for us. +Rep.

I'm getting the XFX 650w Semi-Modular in about a month. From what I've read in the last few months or so it's seems the way to go for me as I want semi modular, and the 650w semi is only a few GBP more here in the UK than the non-modular 650w.

This PSU hasn't got many reported failures, right? Seasonic based, of course, and I haven't seen much complain on it. Shiika you will be my green light to go biggrin.gif

I belive the semi modular XFX are Seasonic M12II´s

Not 100% sure on that but the non modular are S12II and the fully modular are KM3´s so logic would say the semi modular are M12II´s

Got many guides done already

Thinking of doing Antec next

I have a friend who has a ModXstream Pro who had recently purchased a GPU. I go to install the gpu for him and come to find out he tossed all the modular cables when he threw out the PSU box, doh.gif Do you guys think XFX will replace them for a small fee or is there any other place I can get replacements for him? My Corsair modular cables actually plug into it but I don't want to risk plugging them into anything.

If he has lost the cables there is nothing he can do other then try and talk to OCZ

But the ModXstream Pro is not worth all that trouble he should just ditch it

Its not the worst OCZ PSU but its not very good either and i am very tried of it as i see it a lot and its not very good
