While monster power supplies boasting a 1000 or more wattage rating are all the rage, not everyone can afford them. Not only that, but many enthusiasts simply do not need that much power. For those buyers who are looking for an intermediate level power supply that can still handle the strain of a gaming rig, the Seasonic M12II performed remarkably well. Not only did it produce workable power levels across all three rails, it did so under load with a dual GPU setup.
It also features Active PFC, the 80+ efficiency rating and a five year warranty, something that many manufacturers have dropped of late. Add to this the modular design and a 120mm fan for cooling and you have a very reasonably capable PSU. All this and it can be found for less than US$100.
I also like the mesh coating over all modular cable harnesses. This is going to make your airflow battles inside the enclosure a whole lot easier to win. The power supply was also very silent during operation. I was unable to hear it at all when the system was idle and had to stick my head in the case to hear it running when it was under a strain. Very solid cooling plus quiet operation is always a good thing.
