After a tragic death of my power supply last week that brought down my main machine (AMD Phenom II X6 1100T), I am now back in business and posting from my computer again.
I am now the proud owner of a fully modular, 80 Plus Platinum Certified, Crossfire and SLI ready, SeaSonic Platinum 860W!
I chose it for mainly two reasons, it's 80 Plus Platinum Certified, and has a 7 year warranty! I also liked that it was fully modular as I have no intention of going back to power supplies with tons of cables running around.
I am not using even 50% of its capacity right now, with only a X6 1100T, a GeForce 9600, and a few hard drives connected to it, but I intend to build up on this machine and get a couple of good Radeon 7xxx GPUs in the future to really make it roar.
I must say that SeaSonic make the fanciest packages I've seen in a while, inside the box the power supply came in a very nice cloth bag, surrounded by protective foam, and the cables came on a separate two opening bag with the SeaSonic Platinum logo and split on one side Motherboard and CPU cables, and on the other side PCI, Sata and IDE cables.
And now, it is time to get the machine back up and crunching hard!
