Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Seasonic offers four models under their G series, 360 W, 450 W, 550 W, and 650 W, all featuring the 80 Plus Gold certification. Let’s see how the low-wattage 360 W model fared on our tests.

The Seasonic G-360 is only 5.5” (140 mm) deep, using a 120 mm ball-bearing fan on its bottom (ADDA AD1212MB-A70GL).

The Seasonic G-360 doesn’t have a modular cabling system. All cables are protected with nylon sleeves, which come from inside the unit. This power supply comes with the following cables:

  • Main motherboard cable with a 20/24-pin connector, 20.1” (51 cm) long
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 21.6” (55 cm) long
  • One cable with one six-pin connector for video cards, 22.4” (57 cm) long
  • One cable with two SATA power connectors, 17.7” (45 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with two SATA power connectors, 13.8” (35 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with three standard peripheral power connectors, 16.9” (43 cm) to the first connector, 5.1” (13 cm) between connectors

All wires are 18 AWG, which is the correct gauge to be used, except for the +12 V (yellow) wires, which are thicker (16 AWG).

The number of connectors is perfect for a 360 W power supply. In fact, it comes with one connector for video cards, a feature not usually found on power supplies below 400 W.
