Price Per the Watt:
Power Supply Seasonic X-Series 760W at $182.00 = $0.24/Watt (12-2010)
The Seasonic X-Series 760W power supply comes well packaged with a great set of accessories. I don’t know why, but it just oozes quality when you pick it up and on further inspection the build quality is confirmed. I’m not a fan of fully modular power supplies, I can’t see the point of a modular motherboard cable for example, but it works here and works very well.
The Seasonic X-Series 760W power supply performed flawlessly throughout testing and is without doubt one of better power supplies I’ve tested for OCC. The DC voltage load regulation and DC quality is on a par with other power supplies in its class but it really excelled in the efficiency stakes and produced some of the best figures I’ve seen with a maximum of 90% on 110VAC and 92% on 230VAC.
If you are in need of a power supply that will stay cool and quiet whilst surfing or performing simple office tasks with the knowledge that the power is there should you want to fire up your favourite game on your dual graphics card setup then the Seasonic X-Series 760W is certainly worthy of your consideration. It’s a little on the expensive side but the old adage you get what you pay for certainly applies. The Seasonic X-Series 760W power supply looks good, performs very well and I have no hesitation in awarding it the OCC Editors Choice award.
