Computer power supplies, there are SO many to choose from, in fact my next 4 reviews (including this one) are of power supplies! All the manufacturers claim theirs is the best, but which is really the best? They all are supposed to do so many things, and they all have lots of abbreviations on them, what does it all mean to you and me? Just what is PFC or OTP,OPP,OVP?, and do you need it? Do you really need dual 12v rails? (Maybe I should write an article explaining all this stuff.)
Anyway, Seasonic has been around for 20 years now, and they seem to be one of the highly regarded suppliers of quality power supplies. The name Seasonic is synonymous with quality power supplies, today I have the honor of reviewing one of their newest offerings, the S12 series 380Watt power supply.
