Seasonic X-Series 850 W Power Supply Review

Overload Tests
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Below you can see the maximum we could pull from this power supply. Because of its incredibly overspec’ed components, we could easily pull 1,000 W from it. In fact, we had to stop our test at 1,000 W only because this is the limit of our load tester, and this power supply may be able to deliver even more. During this extreme condition, efficiency dropped to 82.4%, but noise and ripple levels were still extremely low and voltages were still within 3% from their nominal values.
