5 out of 5 eggsSeems OK

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Modular
Quiet
Nice modular cables

Cons: None encountered so far.

Other Thoughts: Reading recent reviews, it seems to be a bit random as to whether you'll get a good one or not.

As for me, I bought two (2) of these 2.5 years ago, one of them to replace a Rosewill power supply that had started to behave very strangely in my personal rig.

Both are still going strong 2.5 years later.

I "overbought" when I got the one for my personal rig. Now that I am upgrading to a much more demanding build, I came back here to remind myself what I bought 2.5 years ago; that prompted me to write this review.

It looks like this PSU will do just fine in my new build.

1 out of 5 eggsSeaSonic Grinch

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: None so far...I hope my experience helps others.

Cons: One egg is the lowest I could give...Yes I'm a bit jaded right now. My new SeaSonic X Series Gold X650 was dead on arrival. I was building a new PC for a Christmas present. Hooked all the components together and the it powered up and immediately lost power and shut down. All connections were verified, but apparently an internal circuit breaker is tripping. I've tried to make contact with customer service with no luck or response. There is not a phone number you can call to trouble shoot issues with their product. I purchased this PSU based on Seasonic's reputation for quality, but I don't think that is represented in this particular unit. Now I have to go out an purchase a comparable PSU from a local store to finish this project. I'm realistic and understand components fail and that things happen, but isn't there a testing procedure to ensure they work before leaving the factory? Thanks Seasonic.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Clinton, I am very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you. Please do know that we try our best to ensure the best quality possible at our factory and we are very sorry to have disappointed you in this matter. As this is a new purchase, please contact NewEgg for RMA support and I am sure they will rectify the issue for you as soon as possible. If you have any issues, please contact me at: newegg@seasonicus.com Thank you and happy holidays

2 out of 5 eggsSo far so good, but still hearing coil whine, noise

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Good design
Modular
Stable

Cons: Having coil whine while playing games(loading scene in Far Cry 4) and running some programs

Other Thoughts: Mine was badly damaged at the corner of the PSU box. All components inside are ok but it made me feel I bought a cheap, used PSU
The newegg box which was covered outside PSU box still good so I think this is not Purolator's fault

Manufacturer Response:

Hi MY H.
For coil whine if you have the issue during gaming, this can very well be due to the VGA card's dymanic load not in compliance to Intel specification and this can cause the PSU to emit coil whine. Possible solution is to use ferrite cores on the VGA power cables. As well, if your unit was received with damage, you should contawct NewEgg for RMA and if that is not possible, then please send an e-mail to me at: newegg@seasonicus.com Please contact me if you have further issues with your power supply. Thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsOld reliable

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: + Steady, reliable.
+ It is modular.
+ It has extra modular cables.

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Newegg tells me I got my first one of these in 2010. Can it really have been so long ago? That one worked so well I couldn't pass up another one during the winter sales. These X-series do well in reviews, and my two are doing just fine.

The secret to buying PSU's is to anticipate about when you will be building a new rig, then looking for sales, pulling the trigger when you see the right price. It's also a good idea to have a spare PSU if you can afford one.

You can buy almost any other part off the shelf from a local retailer, or wait a few days for Newegg. If you do that for a sudden right-now need for a PSU, you're likely to pay more than you wanted to pay.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: This PS has been running my computer nearly 24/7 for 11+mo's with an overclocked cpu/gpu without a single hiccup. The reviews on known repeatable PS reviewers are great. read the jonnyguru review and try not to buy it. The 0db fan is pretty amazing, I've almost never seen it go on, and it's unbearable over the gpu when it does.

Cons: The over-the-top felt "crown royal" style bag it comes in doesn't seem to make my friends laugh the way it does me.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews and videos note a 3 year warranty, at the time I bought mine, it was 5 years.
Some review I saw showed ugly unfinished braided cables, these appear to have been early or prototype review units, the model i received had full black cables (no colored ends)

2 out of 5 eggsRandom shutdown

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Packaging was good. Came with a bag for the cables as well. Pretty quiet when it worked.

Cons: The unit would randomly shut down my computer. The power would just turn off instantly at times when the computer was at idle or if a youtube video was playing or gaming. It can shut down at any time. Sometimes it wouldn't shut down for a week and other times I could experience this 3 times a day. It is absolutely random and I've RMA'd the power supply once already. The replacement did not fix it. I've also RMA'd my motherboard tried different GPU's thinking those were potential issues. In the end, I used a spare PSU and that one worked with no problem for the whole month that I had it.

Other Thoughts: There's something wrong with this unit and it seems other people are reporting the same issue as well. Maybe it is with a particular configuration.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Chris,

Random shut down can be attributed to a variety of issues and even possibly software (virus) related. The replacements we provide are all tested to Intel and Seasonic specifications and to have 2 untis exhibit the same behavior can potentially mean the problem's root cause is not necessarily the power supply. If you have further comments or concerns in this regard, please contact me at newegg@seasonicus.com Thank You Very Much.

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible reliability

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: It's fairly quiet. Packaging looks good.

Cons: Randomly shuts down my computer. RMA'd it once and it still does the same thing. Tried a different PSU and that one was fine. I'm not even running anything too power intensive. A 4770K at stock and a R9 290 at stock.

Other Thoughts: I see others reporting the same thing. There hasn't been a fix that I am aware. Seasonic RMA process was fairly quick though.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Chris, I see this is a repeat post. Again, if you have any concerns or comments, please write to me at: newegg@seasonicus.com Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good, no coil whine or noise

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: 1. Great packaging / organization
2. Modular
3. No noise

Cons: 1. You might have possible coil whine due to hardware compability issues. It's not an issue of the PSU, getting a replacement will yield the same problem

Other Thoughts: i5 3570k
MSI p67-g45 b3
sapphire 7850

I was torn between getting a fanless 500w power supply or this x-650. The only thing keeping me from buying this power supply was the complaints of 'coil whine'. Luckily for me, there is no coil whine audible farther than an inch. If I put my ear right next to it, yes there's a slight noise but that's normal and definitely not audible from a distance at all. So far, 10/10. It is pretty much silent. We'll see how long it lasts before it goes kaboom! :)

1 out of 5 eggsBad news

This review is from: SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Works fine in Seasonic fasion for six months. The packaging is a thing of beauty. Most cables from older Seasonic PSUs work fine with the newer supplies.

Cons: The power supply completely failed after six months. Not a good showing!
I confirmed the failure by replacing the PSU with a Seasonic 460W X series fanless.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Willliam, I am sorry for the inconvenience of the RMA. Please contact our USA office to start the RMA processing. If you have any questions or issues please contact me anytime at newegg@seasonicus.com Thank you.
