    Arrow Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 1000 Review

    I can see no better way to close out 2017 than to review another one of Seasonic's latest and greatest units, the flagship of the new Prime Ultra line of units. Folks, meet the 1000 watt Prime Ultra Titanium.

    Another excellent review of another "boringly" excellent Seasonic. Many thanks, again, OW, for all your work over the years....here and at Allpar.


    Merry Christmas!


    BTW.....why was there never much love given to Antec's HCP lineup outside some review sites? Delta built, achieved mythic level in ripple control, voltage regulation. First class (maybe best in class) soldering, excellent parts selection. Yet, the line is rarely mentioned as a competitor vs. the likes of Seasonic, et al.
    A lot of people ask me if I were shipwrecked and could only have one book, what would it be? I always say 'How to Build a Boat.'

    You are correct, hmm idk why, an Antec built by Delta, with excellent soldering ,parts. I would definitely buy one but, some of them are years old

    Excellent review, it is kind of getting a bit boring cause you already know when you are getting a Seasonic Prime unit,it's just going to be excellent.

    @ Jeremy,

    The failure to instant full power is a feature since ages and called "soft-start". Such a PSU powers up in stages to reduce the risk of popping ARC breakers. If other models do not fail your instant load they should still have a soft-start design, but maybe not as cautiously set as Seasonic's. Nobody does it without softstart. The last dumbasses not to do it were the engineers of Enermax Galaxy. Damn did we pop circuit-breakers and then noticed, fuck, even pre-1k, everyone except us was doing soft-start.

    Funny story:
    We gave a VIP at a certain graphics card company a pre-launch Galaxy for private use. The VIP then contacted us and asked, how come that his ARCs pop when he turns on his GALAXY, while he has his Hifi-system connected to it as well (All engineers, who survived my yells then, do softstart since )

    Very intresting. That's would mean that the Prime Ultra Titanium is a exceptionally good and is a 10/10 rating PSU, right?
    And the boogie-woogie line of the Prime Titaniums and Platinums on the same overshoot tests are not smooth because of the same reason?

    Marvelous review entwined with A Christmas Story.

    Too bad that a 450W PSU would cost as much as a 650W from the same line.

    I liked that the fan did not spin in the cold testing, even at 500W. How many watts would they give a fanless one?

    Heatsink: Noctua NH-D15 with one NF-A15 1500 RPM PWM fan
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370X Aorus Gaming 7
    RAM: 4x16GB (64GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 RAM 16-18-18-36@3200MHz, Vdimm = 1.35v

    Maybe because they tried to pioneer a different form factor, and that failed to catch on.

    I guess I wasn't explicit enough. Antec's High Current Pro (HCP) as opposed to the High Current Gamer (HCG), both of which were standard ATX-sized power supplies. Nothing odd sized about them at all.
