Well today I will be reviewing a 700W power supply from a company you all should know by now. It’s from a company that I’ve said is among the best in the industry and kick started the 80PLUS program mainstream. I remember I reviewed the old SS-300 and SS-400 power supplies from Seasonic a few years back and while it didn’t impress me, I’ve got to say Seasonic has improved leaps and bounds.
Power supply demands have grown over the past few years with the arrival of faster machines sporting dual cores and quad core architectures that it’s crazy to think of where we’re at today. It’s not even microprocessors but also graphics cards where one card can draw huge chunks of power from a system. And Seasonic being a leader in the power supply business has come out with an 80PLUS unit featuring a modular cabling system we’ve all come to want. This seems like a really great package on paper and we’ll see how it performs. It is the Seasonic M12 700W 12CM fan power supply (the M designation meaning Modular).
