Performance (40% of the final score) – we’re on the homestretch. As I’ve come to expect from Seasonic units, the performance of this one was plenty impressive. We were promised average regulation and got mythic instead, so no deductions there. Ripple control was excellent on the 12V and mind blowing on the minor rails, so no deduction there. Ditto for the efficiency – she did Gold both times. Finally, this unit did improve on Seasonic’s recent trend of blowing the S&C point to the point I can let them keep that point, so that means Seasonic gets their first 10 here in a little while.

Functionality (20% of the final score) – in cable capacitors suck for cable management, so there goes a half point. Another half point comes down for documentation. But there we will stop. The shallow depth helps a lot for space, the fanless mode is helpful, the unit came with a lot of goodies, and I don’t really see anything else I need to whine about. 9.

Value (20% of the final score) – current NewEgg pricing is $99.90 for this unit. A little more cash than an EVGA GQ 750W, about nine cents less money than a Thermaltake 750W TPG RGB Gold unit. Given the performance and shallowness of the housing, I’d say this unit stacks up better than NewEgg itself does for me lately. 10.

Build Quality (20% of the final score) – flawless, but for one thing… some obvious soldering boo-boos on the line filtering parts. One point gone for them. 9.

SUMMARY

Seasonic has themselves a mighty fine little unit, here. They have focused their lens on the competition, and through a prism of performance I think they’re going to fire the photon torpedoes. They must be de-lighted right now.

The GOOD:

  • way better than advertised voltage stability
  • excellent ripple control
  • fully modular
  • long warranty
  • shallow housing

The BAD:

  • solder joints on the primary side line filter needed work

The MEDIOCRE:

  • in cable capacitors
