5 out of 5 eggsnot pretty but it works GREAT

Pros: NOT PRETTY but it works great !! Has cables l could ever need .it runs quiet and cooler than any else i've had AND i've had a few .AT first was hesitant but after reading all kinds of reviews and seeing what is inside of these PSU s l took the chance never been happier !!l have a closed case so looks really didn't matter .REMEMBER THESE GUYS ARE OEM MAKERS FOR A LOT OF OTHERS GO LOOK .l would put thing up to any single GPU out there today and not worry !!

Cons: LOOKS PLAIN thats it

Other Thoughts: SEASONIC MAKES PSU s for a lot of other companies and parts used in here are not half as**d but top shelf ,first sign it auto changes input voltage ,no switch = high end components !! Don t believe go do your research and see who uses cheap parts ,over rates the wattage etc

1 out of 5 eggsHope you like buzzing

Pros: The price was nice and it did have more than enough connectors. On paper this thing looks pretty decent, great 12v rails and everything.

Cons: So apparently SS PSU's make this incredibly annoying electric buzzing and that doesn't mean they are broken necessarily! They just happen to do that, and it will drive you insane.

Other Thoughts: RMA'd my SS PSU, and decided to go with a Corsair modular PSU. No buzz and only as many cables as I needed

1 out of 5 eggsIt works ok but high pitch noise

Pros: It works ok and fan works very quietly.

Cons: I used the RMA replacement because the power supply causes high pitch noise.
I got the replacement in a week, but it still causes the high pitch noise. (the noise is reduced a little, but still..)

Other Thoughts: I'm sure the noise is coming from the power supply.
If you're a sensitive person, I recommend you to consider buying the other power supply than this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Seasonic Quality, quite fan that moves good amount of exhaust air.

Cons: Comes without manual or special boxing due to it being O.E.M. Not really a bad con, but it isn't modular, so there are extra wires taking up space in my case, but I have heard modualr units can have problems with loose connectors, so, like I said, not really a bad con.

Other Thoughts: Wires are pleny long, so they will reach anything in most cases, unlike some units which have short wire harnesses.

5 out of 5 eggsGrey Box

Pros: Seasonic reliability, plenty of power connectors. And this thing is quiet. The components are cooled by a nice size fan made of good thick plastic. Quieter than the Enermax Noisetaker II it is replacing.

Cons: Its ugly. OEM version so what do you expect. I will miss the nice cable sleeves on the enermax. But I do not have a plexiglass window on my PC. These were known before hand... just cons but nothing that would make me want to take away an egg.

Other Thoughts: Running a Core i5-750, Gigabyte p55-GD45, 4GB ram, 3 HD's, 2 opticals, and an ATI 4830. I would probably overload the PSU if I threw in two 5870's... but still plenty of headroom with one GPU.

5 out of 5 eggsYou wanting to know about the connectors, right?

Pros: It's quiet. Should be able to handle just about single GPU build. I'm not into CF or SLI, so I wanted a quality ps for my PII/5850 machine without spending a ton of money.

Cons: None, other than the cable connections are not described here, so I had to cross my fingers as I hit the add to cart button. Read on and now you will know:

Other Thoughts: Connectors:

24 pin main. 8 pin cpu. (2) 4 pin cpu. (2) 6 pin video card. 1 floppy. 5 standard molex. 4 SATA.
