3 out of 5 eggs Completely unnecessary and uncomplimentary modular design 03/15/2015

This review is from: SeaSonic SS-350TGM Bulk 350W TFX12V (v2.31) 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - OEM

Pros: Great efficiency and wattage for a TFX power supply.

Cons: I agree with Larry. and those who say it isn't helpful are not objective about this power supply. There is NO way to tell this will work without buying it and trying it and hoping this unconventional and proprietary and non-beneficial design will work for you. Buy at your own risk.

The modular design serves absolutely no purpose. Modular design is supposed to give different connection options. This modular design not does not provide any connection options from if it was hard wired, none whatsoever. There is either use the power supply with the modular connection or not at all. Those are the only two options: All the modular connection does is cause an unconventional design that can only restrict it's use. I agree with Larry, the power supply is noisy, has a constant buzzing sound and a modular connection that serves no purpose, provides no connection options any different than if it was hard wired.

Pros: Plenty of juice for low profile systems. That's all I can say good about it, which allowed me to put a more powerful video card in my HTPC.

Cons: I've had it in a HTPC for almost a year now and I just don't like that modular connection. I am using an InWin HTPC case and there is a fan holder bracket on the side of the case that is right against the inside end of the power supply. For me to use this power supply, it requires me to remove that and prevent me from putting a fan there. So here I am, running a higher watt power supply and a hotter running video card (vs the onboard video especially) and decreased ability to keep it cool because of the modular design. I regularly felt the PC case and it was warm, sometimes hot. I took off the cover and felt the power supply and that was pretty warm, in addition to a warmer running video card...NOT good. I decided that I just can't use this power supply since it runs warm and blocks the use of an additional fan for cooling. I want my HTPC to last a while and this eventually will shorten it's life span I fear due to the heat.

DIAMOND Radeon HD 7750 Graphic Card - 800 MHz Core - 1 GB GDDR5 SDRAM - PCI Express 3.0 x16 - Low-profile
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does 4096 x 2160 resolution. The poster complaining about not doing 2560 resolution by the first initial "H" should read the specs. "H" just bought it less than a month ago and I doubt New Egg just put "(Display Port)" within the last few weeks. So it isn't buyer beware, but "buyer read the specs" that are plainly in front of your face. Yet, they complain saying,"The 2 x Dual-Link DVI out is a clever design that utilizes a Y-adapter from a special video-out port to deliver the advertised 2560 x 1600 rez to (2) displays via DL-DVI."

Cons: None.
