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

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

good read! my only complaint with the seasonics! they dont let you use 4 pcie and 2 different cpu connectors on their 1250w !

KingT 10-28-2013 03:19 AM

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..
