Test Results

Our load tests utilize a couple of FAST ATE active load testers and a variety of other equipment such as an oscilloscope, power conditioner, temperature probe and a power consumption meter. You can read more about our standard testing approach here.

The tests performed are based around six conceivable setups that are out there and progressively load down the PSU up to the power supply's limits or 1000W, whichever comes first. Since our test equipment's limits are greater than the X-760, we can test it to the maximum.

Seasonic's quality shows in the results achieved by the X-760. All of the rails were rock solid throughout the five tests it was run through. The voltages were well within ATX specifications and stayed within 2.5% regulation. Very few power supplies can attest to such good results.

 

Ripple on the 12V line was miniscule as well, reaching a maximum of 24mV peak to peak under full load. Efficiency was right on par with the 80Plus Gold rating that the unit achieved, with a minimum efficiency of 88.1% under full load.

 

Final Thoughts

 

The quality and innovation shown with the Seasonic X-760 is just another great example of why Seasonic has been around for over 30 years and is still an industry leader in the power supply market.

 

The excellent performance of the X-760 coupled with exceptional build quality throughout the entire power supply provides an excellent option for enthusiasts seeking the best. To add a little more icing to the cake, the 5 year warranty that Seasonic backs the X-760 with gives you some added confidence and peace of mind that your investment will last.

 

Taking a look at the price point of the X-760 shows that power supply is even more enticing. At $170, it is cheaper than both the recently reviewed ToughPower Grand 750W and Enermax Modu87+ 800W power supplies. It just goes to show that sometimes you can have your cake and eat it, too.
