Seasonic X-Series XM2-1250 Power Supply Review

Manufacturer: Seasonic

Final Thoughts and Conclusions

View Full Size

Seasonic has once again taken a very good power supply and made it even better. The enhancements made to the X-Series XM2-1250 translate to excellent performance, high efficiency and the ability to operate in silent-fanless mode at lower power levels.  Throw in a 7-year warranty, a great assortment of all modular cables, really tight voltage regulation, clean DC outputs and you have one very good power supply!

The Seasonic X-Series XM2-1250 power supply should start entering North American retail channels in August 2014 with an expected MSRP of $239~$249 USD.

Can the Corsair individually sleeved cables be used with this unit?

I love my Seasonic X-1250M PSU. I've had it for over 1 year and never had any issues with it. This unit looks even better then the original one.

I've had Seasonics go cradle to grave with a couple of PCs- nice PSU.
With this you're looking at a dedicated 15A outlet. Much more and you'll need a 20A.
I think I'll lose interest at 3-phase 208.
