I love that this is completely modular. I only need to connect the cables I need.
Also the cooling solution is very nice. In fact, in the default mode, the fan doesn't even spin up until the power supply hits moderate load. Even then it is almost silent.
It's a little longer than the typical power supply, so if you have a small form factor case (mini-ITX or mini-ATX) make sure to measure beforehand.
It's a premium product, and as such carries a premium price. It's hard to judge if it's worth the extra cost, but it's high power output and modularity should mean it'll have a fairly long usable lifetime.
For anyone out there hesitating to buy..... just buy it, it is a real quality product.

I got this to replace an aging TX950 not because it was bad, but because I'm a firm believer that you don't wait on a power supply to start flaking out on you before you replace it. This has kept all of my home-built systems running without fail until I deem them obsolete.
This Seasonic is my first fully-modular power supply. It now powers an Intel i7-3930K, an Asus P9X79 Pro, an Intel 520 Series 120GB SSD, an Intel X-25 M 80GB SSD, 2 Western Digital Black Edition 500 GB hard drives, 16GB Corsair Dominator RAM, a Corsair H80 CPU cooler, 2 GTX 680s in SLI, an LG DVD burner and 8 fans (2 on the radiator and 6 case fans) all within the confines of a Thermaltake Spedo case. I still have 2 PCIe 2x8-pin cables left over (and connections for both) as well as an SATA and a couple of 4-pin molex cables. I could theoretically connect two more 680s and another set of fans or power another strand of SATA-powered disks. I do not need 1000W for my system, but I know if I add more video cards or if new cards come out with an increased power requirement over the next 7 years (this is the warranty period through Seasonic!), this supply can do the job.
It was easy to install due to its modular design. There were absolutely no "gotchas" with this Seasonic unit. I removed the old power supply and then installed the Seasonic. Cable management is even made easy with the supplied zip ties and more than enough velcro ties. After it was installed I flipped the power on and made sure everything was running as expected.Read more ›
There is a website/guy that does some extensive testing on psu's, and a year or so ago, when I was shopping for a new psu for my personal rig, I stumbled across his review:
Whe I went shopping again, I figured something must have topped this right?
Wrong, the only things that come close are the Corsair AX1200i, and the SeaSonic X1250.
The X-1250 was only a gold efficiency rating, and the Corsair barely even made the plat, by a margin on less then 1%.
The newer gpu's don't require as much power as some of the older ones, (my SLi & OC'ed 470's took around 450watts a piece!) so I also thought the jump from 1000 to 1200 was unnecessary.
This unit is top notch, sleeved cables, modular, quite and smart cooling fan, I mean, it comes in a velvet bag!
After a year of mine running like a champ and looking great, I recommend and use this psu for high end gaming machines.
