Now everyone and their dog (or whatever pet you have) have heard of Seasonic before

Seasonic is one of the few OEM´s that both sell their own units under their own name as well as do OEM work for Antec / XFX / Corsair and others

Before i begin i will like to say a few words
fanboys be warned (Click to show)

Now i have seen many here on OCN hail Seasonic as the god of the PSU world which you worship and i am getting very tried of it
There is no such thing as a OEM and/or brand that is better then everything else its like saying one type of food is better then another type of food
In the end you are only making yourself look ignorant (or stupid) or worse a fanboy so stop with the Seasonic is best in the world hype already
No Seasonic is not bad but they have messed up in the part and they are human so they dont deserve all the hype they get
In fact i feel they sell more on their name then on PSU quality which is not just wrong but dangerous

Enough rant

First up is the S12 II Bronze series which is is non modular 80 plus bronze rated series
Wattage is 380 / 430 / 520 / 620

Now this is a very good PSU series sure its non modular and its only 80 plus bronze rated but there is nothing bad to say about it at all

Both ripple and regulation is very good

Next is the M12 II Bronze which is a semi modular 80 plus bronze rated series

Wattage is 520 / 620 / 650 / 750 and 850

Overall a pretty good series but it is a bit old now

Next is the brand new Seasonic M12 II Bronze Evo Edition which is a fully modular 80 plus bronze rated series

Overall this is a good cheap fully modular 80 plus bronze rated series

Next is the brand new Seasonic S12G series which is a non modular 80 plus gold rated series

Wattage is 450 / 550 / 650 / 750

Next is the Seasonic G which is a semi modular 80 plus gold rated series

Note that the 360 watts version is non modular

Wattage is 360 / 450 / 550 / 650 and 750 watts[/B]

Now this is a very good bang for buck series you get a lot of PSU for what you pay for and overall its a pretty good series

Only bad thing i have to say and this is really nitpicking is efficiency sometimes has problems reaching gold

Next is the Seasonic X series which is is a fully modular 80 plus gold rated series

Now since the older KM2 units are discontinued i wont talk about those

Only the KM3 based models will be talked about

Wattage is 650 / 750 / 850 / 1050 and 1250 watts

Overall this is a very good PSU series and there is not really anything bad i can say maybe other then price

Next one is the Seasonic Platinum which is a fully modular 80 plus platinum rated series
Wattage is 400 / 460 / 520 / 660 / 760 / 860 / 1000 / 1200 watts

Note that the 400/ 460 / 520 watts are fanless models

Not to burst your bubble, but i think Delta PSU's are better built and more reliable. Don't get me wrong though, Seasonic is still very good, my last Seasonic PSU which was the Antec HCG-520 was a very nice unit for the price.

So I assume you will list all the OEM's that use Seasonic internals? I only buy either Seasonic branded or others that have Seasonic components (like the Antec HCM-850).

Funny thing is you can get some great deals on other brands with Seasonic innards. I just bought my Antec for $100 (after rebate). compared to the $220 I paid for my Corsair AX850HD or $170 for my Seasonic X-660, it's a heck of a deal.

No each brand has its own thread which means Seasonic thread is Seasonic only

XFX already has its own and Antec is planed later

Ah silly me, didn't read the OP properly.

Most of the time OEM"s such as HP, Dell, Acer etc always use good OEM's for their PSU's, most of the dell's and HP's use Delta units and usually Acer has FSP units. dunno why people think OEM PSU's are junk. rolleyes.gif

Actually Delta does so much OEM work for many companies that they are the bigest OEM in terms of sales in the world

They are larger then Seasonic or any other OEM

Delta is also older they stated in 1971 Seasonic started in 1975

I have SeaSonic G550W PSU and it's powering my dual HD7950 DC2 TOP rig with 2500K overclocked @ 4.5GHz.

Downside of this unit is that it has only two PCIE connectors so I had to use custom built molex to PCIE adapters in order to power my GPUs.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Also when it reaches load over 300W fan on the PSU ramps up very high and it's a bit noisy due aggressive fan profile set by SS. (even though PSU runs very cool).

Other than that it's very stable and afordable GOLD efficiency PSU.


CHEERS..

It can run Crysis..
