Seasonic X900 SS-900HP 900w PSU
With the X900 being Seasonic's latest flagship PSU, it's obvious that they wanted the quality of the unit to be reflected in the design of the packaging. Using only a black and blue 'glow effect' background with a single picture of the unit on the top of the box, they have certainly achieved a simplistic yet professional look.
Not wanting to leave you feeling short changed, Seasonic have included the following accessories in addition to the usual PSU, Manual and power lead affair:
- Seasonic case badge.
- 2x PCI-E 6-Pin to 8-Pin convertor cables.
- 1x Molex to Floppy cable.
- 3x Cable ties (re-usable).
Measuring in at 180mm long, the X900 isn't much bigger than your average ATX power supply. This is great news for those of us with small cases or limited space around the PSU area. However, previous high-wattage unit's we've tested around this size have all suffered from overheating issues or poor performance, so it will definitely be interesting to see if Seasonic have managed to avoid these pitfalls in the compact PSU's design.
As we can see from the images above, the X900 is cooled by a single 80mm fan placed at the rear of the unit. The fan is configured to draw air from the inside of the PC case through the grills at the front of the unit, over the aluminium heatsinks, and exhaust the hot air out the back of your PC with a fair amount of force.
