You'd have to look for it I'm afraid, generally you can find posts with pinouts schematics for popular power supplies somewhere. But they're all user made.

But if you're planning to us the stock cables you really don't need a pinout, just do every cable one by one, unpossible to make mistakes that way.

Since Cablemod is having delivery troubles with the virus and such and I bought a 1080 Ti Lightning X that needs 3 PCI-E 8 pins and my cheap secondhand Seasonic Focus Plus Gold misses the second PCI-E cable I was thinking i'm going to upgrade to a higher efficiency.

I have to stay with Seasonic as that way I can keep the existing cables in my case which are all pre-routed already and can just add a second PCI-E. Also some of them are already CableMod customs so I'm not switching brands.

However, as jonnyguru hasn't posted a review in like a year, I have no idea which Seasonic model would be the go-to now.

All the modern Seasonic PSU's use the same cables according to Cablemod's compatibility charts but like, Prime vs Prime Ultra vs Prime TX, GX, PX.. I don't know anymore...

I was looking at the Prime PX-850 as that's sort of reasonably priced but.. no reviews of it whatsoever lol. There's a regular Prime 1300w for the same price, around €200, the Focus GX-850 is not more efficient but is WAY cheaper at like, €124.

Then there's the Focus PX-850 which is super cheap for a 85ow Platinum unit at like, €149 but again, no reviews. Is it any good.

I would've loved to be able to buy a Phanteks Revolt 1000w or 1200w as they are Seasonic based but they are nowhere to be found here and neither are the ASUS ROG Seasonic PSU's..

Cars:
-Crashed: (not my fault ) '94 Nissan 100NX GA16DE (a.k.a. NX1600). Renault Laguna Phase I facelift '99 1.6 K4M. (Broke a strut and smacked a tree).
-Sold: '00 Nissan Primera P11-144 QG18DE, '97 Honda Prelude F20A4, 03 Ignis Sport.
-Current daily: '07 Ford Focus 1.6 Futura.
-Current funcars: '03 Peugeot 206CC 2.0 RFN fully riced and tuned (Turbo coming soon)
Looking for: Gen 4 or 5 Honda Prelude, >92 Toyota Celica or >90 MR2.

There are other reviews on the internet other than jonnyguru which has had their reviewer leave
Toms hardware, Techpowerup and Kitguru all have professional reviews with load testing and everything

As for the Seasonic Prime Ultra its an improvement on the older Prime series and its one of the best series around
If you are looking for a review here you go https://www.kitguru.net/components/p...supply-review/

There are other reviews of both the Prime Ultra and the Focus GX/PX on all 3 sites just look around

If you can't buy from your country then buy from Amazon UK and DE they both offer Phanteks Revolt and both Asus ROG. I also seen Netherland shops can ship international too and have good prices. I also seen they offer PSU cables.
This are also other German shops 10€-20€ international shipping.

I'm somewhat struggling to make a decision, hoping you guys could pitch in with your thoughts on the matter.

So here's the deal. I was looking for a cheap used PSU for an older gaming rig(that's lacking one) that I'm looking to sell.

Nothing decent came up, was looking for a reasonably priced Corsair CXM or something, but nada. until I found this Seasonic SS-660XP² that'd been for sale for a few weeks, seller claimed it ran out of warranty so I haggled quite a bit and got it cheap. Turns out its only just over 2y old and had almost 5y of warranty left, and has the receipt from an authorized retailer included(which seasonic requires for a psu that changed owners).

Way too good to put in a crummy gaming rig that i'm looking to get rid off imo. Thinking of replacing my 3yo Corsair SF600 with is 3yo which wasn't bought at an authorized reseller, so warranty might not be valid anymore...

So here are my options.
  • Flip the 660XP2 again for a profit, and look for a more suitable PSU for the old rig.
  • Use the 660XP2 in my rig, sell the SF600, and look for something more suitable for the old rig.
  • Just put 660XP2 in the old rig and sell it with that.

Just noticed this model here;

Been surfing Newegg to spend some money here and came across this new model;

https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/...82E16817151232

Does anyone know if this model is actually decent and good to use, inside a Fractal 7 Case at all?

Just curious if this PSU could be a new way of installing and using a Power Supply with a close connection to ALL the hardware, inside the case. A unique design or a complete failure here have no idea but would like to receive any informative guesses as to it's intended purpose compared to the old style of PSUs and their cabling system.

I recon it's mostly just easier cable management. Moving the 5/3.3v bucks out of the main supply, could open up some room to improve the 12V side, and the shorter cable runs could be beneficial as well. But I don't expect there to be a huge difference.

Looks like it should work well in the define 7 if you're able to remove those plastic cable guides.

Thank you, Gilles3000 an order has been put through.

Have to try this latest release from Seasonic, I actually don't mind their gear hoping this unit won't have any trouble with a Vega 64.

Hey all,

Im looking for a PSU to power my next BOINC/Folding rig

CPU: Ryzen 1st Gen
GPU: 2 GTX 1070, this may change down the road but I tend to stay around the 125-175 TDP range.
Usage: 24/7
Budget: Not unlimited, looking for a good value, but also efficient and reliable PSU

Running BOINC on 3 cores and folding on the GPU, my Sandy Bridge rig with a single 1070 pulls ~300-400W at the wall with a Seasonic X650 Gold, so I was thinking 650-750w range would be fine for the new rig but let me know if you think otherwise.

I have a Microcenter nearby, but otherwise I would be looking at Newegg or Amazon to find the PSU.

Thanks for the help

Get a Corsair HX850 (good price) because it will last and has a good recommendation among the hardcore overclockers and higher spec rig runners.
