Though Seasonic may not be one of the most heard of names with regards to power supplies, they have been around for some time. Beginning their venture into the PC power supply market back in 1975, they spent many years manufacturing their product for the OEM sector. Lately, however, they have come out into the open and have begun making a PSU line for the mainstream industry. Their US offices began in 2002 and they have been going strong since.
One of their latest products is the S12 PSU, which is capable of delivering 430 watts of continuous power to today's hungry computer systems. Seasonic makes a lot of claims about their PSU, so we'll take a closer look and see what happens when we thrash it out a bit. With multiple hard drives and numerous optical and other peripherals being the norm, power is at a premium.
So relax for a bit and take a stroll with me as we delve a little deeper into the Seasonic S12.
