5 out of 5 eggsReliable power source!

This review is from: SeaSonic Platinum SS-860XP2 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: It hasn't conked out on me yet. It looks quite good in a black computer tower as well. The cable management is certainly there. And, it stays cool while being silent, (likely because I don't use anything near 860W so the fan never turns on).

Cons: I'm not a picky consumer. Therefore I can't really think of anything that I could use as a con. It has given me no problems as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this power source for someone wanting a little future proofing.

This review is from: SeaSonic Platinum SS-860XP2 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Provides stable power.

Quiet.

Single 12 V rail.

Modular, so I don't have a bunch of unused cables crowding up the case.

Cons: The power cable was barely long enough for routing in my Corsiar 550D case. This wouldn't be an issue without routing it behind the motherboard, but then it would be impeding airflow.

3 out of 5 eggsGood when you get what you pay for

This review is from: SeaSonic Platinum SS-860XP2 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Nice
Clean
Fully Modular
Platinum 80+

Cons: When I first received this unit, it was in sorry shape. One one that I received was clearly used, the box was damaged, the unit itself was covered in (someone else's) fingerprints, cords were in unsealed bags, basically anything you wouldn't want to see when you pay for a NEW unit. So I RMAd it with the help of Newegg. It was a painless process and I commend their quality of Customer Service. However upon receiving my Replacement, this one's box is also not in its original Plastic Wrapping and the UPC code is again missing. I don't know if the person who pulls orders just doesn't want to send me a unit still fully in its original packaging, or if Newegg just removes the Plastic Wrapping and UPC codes from SeaSonic PSUs (I'd actually like to know). All in All I'm not fully satisfied with twice receiving units that aren't in original packaging. Maybe this will get another Egg if it performs well in my Build. However if it dies for whatever reason I'll be using the SeaSonic 7 Year Warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsTop quality PSU from a brand known for it.

This review is from: SeaSonic Platinum SS-860XP2 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: -Ultra-high, 80 Plus Platinum rated efficiency.
-Delivers the closest to advertised wattage of any power supply I've ever used.
-When set to Hybrid Mode, the fans rarely spin, even under high load.
-When the fans do operate, they are whisper quiet.
-Huge selection of modular cables that allow connection of any mix of components.
-7 year warranty.

Cons: -While the warranty is great, Seasonic's RMA process is a hassle and expensive.

Other Thoughts: I've been building computers for 20+ years. People often underestimate how vital a quality power supply is and I always buy high-end when I can. This is far and away the best power supply I've ever used. It's so high efficiency that the fans almost never need to turn and when they do, you basically can't hear them. Most power supplies are not able to deliver the maximum wattage they advertise but this one pretty much does in all the tests I've run. The modular cables are vast and a snap to use. It even looks nice and sleek if you have a system that has a windowed case.

My only complaint is that while it has a ridiculous warranty, Seasonic's RMA process leaves a lot to be desired. I had to send another unit in for repair that was damaged by a power surge. You create an RMA online, then have to send it to the middle of California at your expense (there is no advanced replacement option), wait at least 2 weeks with no way to track the status and if they can't find a problem, you have to pay them a $25US fee before they'll ship it back to you. The chances of you needing RMA service are very small but given the price of these units, it's ridiculous that they don't offer better service than this.

I can't recommend Seasonic enough. They're pricey but the quality and features are the best in their class. If you're building a powerful system, get one.

5 out of 5 eggsPower good enough for a workstation

This review is from: SeaSonic Platinum SS-860XP2 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Very well made
Sanyo Deki exhaust fan
Modular design
Hybrid operation
Excellent packaging

Cons: Expensive but well worth it
Exhaust scheme affects chassis selection
No motherboard status monitor link
Hybrid selector switch is not external
Some would say the packaging is overkill

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent PSU, typical of the offerings from Seasonic. Anyone who builds machines for mission critical applications knows the reputation of this fine company. Many high end units from other manufacturers are simply rebranded Seasonic devices. If you simply want the best PSU money can buy, there is no substitute for a genuine Seasonic in your system. The PSU is one utem you should never skimp on.

The unit I installed is whisper quiet but not totally silent if the fan is spinning. Although the unit can operate up to half power with the fan stopped in hybrid mode, I chose to leave it spinning for that little extra cooling oomph the Sanyo Deki fan provides, augmenting the airflow provided by the four case fans inside the workstation.

Base System spec in brief:

Raijintek Aeneas micro ATX cube chassis
Gigabyte B85M-D3H system board
Intel Xeon E31246V3 at 3.5GHz
Noctua NHU12S CPU cooler with two NF-F12 fans
32GB (4X8GB) Kingston Value RAM
Icy Dock Armor 2 3.5inch hot swap for two SSDs
Intel 730 240GB SSD for Windows 7 Pro
Two WD Blue 1TB HHDs for file storage
LG 16X MDisc ODD for Bray, DVD and CD

5 out of 5 eggsModular, 860 watts, beautiful, platinum efficiency. Easiest purchase of the build.

This review is from: SeaSonic Platinum SS-860XP2 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: I bought two of these for two identical Intel 4790k systems running Nvidia GTX 970 cards. Gets it done nicely and saves some money on the power bill. Modular design makes it easy to keep cable clutter to a minimum. Actually a good looking power supply with no frills in the lighting department. Easiest purchase of the entire build. Also powers a SSD, 3TB HD, & DVD Blu-Ray.

Cons: None. Had it 4 months now with zero problems.
