The Seasonic X-1050 is fully modular and comes with a fantastic selection of connectors and cables. Dual EPS12V connectors and six 8-pin PCI-E cables make this a prime candidate for enthusiasts and overclockers alike. The peripheral cables are also available in multiple lengths to ensure that cable management can be done well, right out of the box.

Seasonic keeps the rail distribution sweet and simple with a single 12V rail.

Lots of cooling can be found once you open up the unit. You can tell that care was taken to make sure things were placed in an efficient manner.

A trio of Japanese made Nippon Chemi-Con caps adorns the primary side of the X-1050 power supply.

Seasonic uses the Sanyo Denki San Ace 120 fan to cool the X-1050. They say that the fan is more balanced than others which provides for increased performance.
