  S12 Energy Plus Power Supply – 650W

Words from the company:
The culmination of over 30 years of leading edge power supply design and production expertise enabled Seasonic to be the first power supply manufacturer to receive the coveted "80 Plus" certificate in the United States.  Now this "80 Plus" certified high efficiency power supply is available to the general market in two models, the S12 Energy+550 and the S12 Energy+650.

In response to high energy costs and increased environmental awareness, Seasonic engineers focused sharply on efficient utilization of energy. By incorporating state-of-the-art Dual Forward Converter circuit design with active power factor correction, the S12 ENERGY+ achieves industry-leading efficiency ratings.

The review:
First of all, with all the information about the power supply's capability described above in the "Words from the company", I will not go into any technical detail. I would rather expound on the fact that in today's computers, whether it is a gaming computer or a high end business computer, the power supply is a key component. With the demand of more power for the various plug-ins and add-ons, you have to make sure that your power supply is not only adequate but steady and trustworthy as well. We have used Seasonic for power supply for as long as I can remember and we have never had any problems with breakdowns or power fluctuations and this is because of the efforts of Seasonic to produce a quality product.

The demand for more and more Wattage has been kept up with by Seasonic and you can read the reviews of previous Seasonic PS's in this magazine by going to these links:
