Seasonic has been around almost longer than anyone else in the PC power supply market. Ask anyone who is known for quiet and efficient power supplies and Seasonic will come up more often than not. Seasonic launched the X-Series power supplies back in 2009 and they were well received amongst enthusiasts for the exceptional quality and efficiency. Unfortunately they were only available in 650W and 750W models at the time.
Fast forward to mid 2010 and Seasonic announced a revamp of the X-series. This also came with a much expanded lineup, offering the X-series in various iterations from 400W to 1200W. This new lineup provided power supply solutions for those needing more or less power than previously offered.
Today we are taking a look at their X-760 power supply.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Seasonic's X-760 features a single 12V rail serving up 63A of power for hungry GPU's and motherboards. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are capable of 25A each which should offer more than an ample amount of power as well.
Seasonic makes sure that you are well protected with all of the voltage, current, power and temperature protections available. The X-760 is a fully modular PSU including the 20+4 pin main and ATX 4+4 connectors. All cables are fully sleeved. Seasonic rates the X-760 for 100% output at 50C. The X-760 is also rated as an 80Plus Gold power supply.
The X-760 is readily available and can be found for around $170 at many places, but Newegg does not currently list them. Newegg does show the X-850 and its price is 199.99 at the time of writing. Seasonic backs the X-Series power supplies with a 5 year warranty, one of the highest in the industry.
