Quiet and efficient
This review is from: SeaSonic S12G-450 450W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply, Intel Haswell Ready
Pros: I installed the 450W Seasonic S12G to replace a modular OCZ 500W. My Asus Mobo utility was giving occasional low-voltage alarms with the OCZ, so I figured it was time to replace it. The Seasonic is much quieter; I didn't realize that the OCZ was the loudest fan in my case until I installed this PSU. I can also attest to a slight, but measurable, improvement in efficiency ... at idle, the Kill-A-Watt now shows 78 Watts with a power factor of .98. The previous PSU would draw around 84 watts at idle (the PC components are otherwise unchanged). Also, it is running very cool.
Cons: Not modular, but I knew that when I ordered it, and the cables are well organized, so the unused cables aren't much of a nuisance.
