I can not directly measure the efficiency of this power supply since I don't have the specialized equipment needed for that, but I can tell you my new computer uses just a little less power than my old one and the power factor was 0.99 (both measured with a kill-a-watt meter). Also reviews of this power supply at sites like anandtech show that it is very efficient.
Unlike the older 550, 750, 850 and 1050 models whose fan grills protrude, the fan grill on this 560 model is flush with the top the PSU. For my case (a Lian Li PC60) this is important because the power supply slides in from the back of the case and a protruding fan grill keeps it from fitting. I had to return a Corsair 750 PSU (which is almost identical to the Seasonic 750w and is made by Seasonic) because it would not fit my case due to the protruding fan grill.
I would definitely buy this PSU again or recommend it to others, but my next PSU will probably be the 760 watt model instead of this 560 watt one since I want to be able to run 2 GPU's in my next machine.
Works very very quiet. Does not draw any current when computer is shut-down - energy saving.
Oh and I keep seeing the x650/x660 cheaper than this one.. what gives!?!?
Seasonic has a reputation of reliable and good PSU designs and the X-560 continues that path. They also manufacure PSUs to other brands like Corsair. Though not all Corsair PSUs are from high quality manufacturers like Seasonic. I have had the Corsair 650TX (not the v2 model though) made by Seasonic for 2 years and is a well performing device. If you want to check who is the likely manufacturer of your PSU or the one you are thinking of buying then Google "tomshardware psu manufacturers" and you should get the first hit as a link to the article showing the real manufacturers of the PSUs.
While being a bit modest on the power rating compared to many other >700W models this is a high quality and high efficiency device suitable for systems with a single graphics card. Seasonic has also higher rated systems (better suited for dual or higher graphics card solutions) but if there is no need for it then it does not give the optimum bang for the buck for your hard earned money.
The removable cables help the assembly in a chassis with limited space.Read more ›
I always use the power supply configuration tool I found online to tell me how many watts I need in a PSU. If you Google for "eXtreme Power Supply Calculator" you will find it. The tool won't recommend a brand - it will just recommend a wattage.
This is my second or third Seasonic PSU and I haven't had trouble with any of them. They are worth the money.
