Welcome to the Official OCN Seasonic Platinum Series Owners Club!
Seasonic Platinum Series Website

Post a pic to join this club!

NEW SNOWSILENT 750w/1050w!

http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2603810/
"the Snow Silent-750 is a fine PSU that easily earned an Editor's Choice award"
http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2603811/
"The Seasonic SnowSilent 1050W certainly is a winner. Next to the efficiency it has good looks, is modular, is horrendously stable, comes with dark cabling and then we have to acknowledge it's drop dead silent as well"

"You should definitely take a look at this one if you need an incredibly well-performing white PSU of good build quality and stunning looks."

"The Good:
•amazing voltage stability
•flawless build quality
•excellent ripple suppression
•fully modular
•tons of extra goodies

The Bad:
•not one thing

The Mediocre:
•Every time I test one of these Seasonics, I usually have to go back to something less awesome. It's a drag, quite frankly. I mean, how could anything possibly top a unit like this?"



"Verdict : The Snow Silent-750 is a top-notch Seasonic unit offering a unique look, high performance and silent operation, thanks to the quality FDB fan, the relaxed fan profile and the semi-passive mode."

860W Review at AnandTech
-"Probably the Best PSU Ever!"

1000W Review at JonnyGURU
The Bad: How the hell is Seasonic going to top this one?

The Mediocre: How the hell is anybody going to top this one?
Score 9.7

Hardware Info

The Seasonic Platinum 660W, 760W and 860W are basically perfect power supplies. They have the best low-load efficiency we've ever seen in this segment, the efficiency at higher loads is also good, their ripple is outstanding and the semi-passive design makes them inaudible in most circumstances. Had some of the cables been a little longer there would have been nothing we could complain about.

...if you have the money, it does buy you a perfect power supply, worthy of the Gold Award.



Thanks to QuietGamer for the review find.

While I haven't actually used it yet, but I do own a 1000w monster!<br><br>
I have a pic, but here's an unboxing I did. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Video has since been added to the OP. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I'm sure these things take a while. Platinum is still relatively new.

Waiting on Mod's to let me make this Official. Might help. Last few days I have PMed 2 mods. 1 PM each. No responce yet.</div>
</div>

You need to have a slightly bigger club than just 2 members to become official. <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif"> PM one of the section mods, a senior mod, or a section editor once the club has gotten a little bit larger, and we'll see what we can do. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">
