Seasonic PRIME Ultra 750W Titanium Power Supply

Author:
Manufacturer: Seasonic

Introduction and Features

Introduction

It’s been almost two years since we first looked at Seasonic’s top of the line PRIME 750W Titanium power supply. Since then Seasonic has tweaked the design, increased the warranty to 12-years, and added “Ultra” to the name. So what else has changed? Is the PRIME Ultra Titanium still one of the best power supplies money can buy?

Sea Sonic Electronics Co., Ltd has been designing and building PC power supplies since 1981 and they are one of the most highly respected manufacturers in the world. Not only do they market power supplies under their own Seasonic name but they are the OEM for numerous other big-name brands.

Seasonic’s PRIME Ultra lineup was introduced last year with the Titanium Ultra Series, which currently includes four models: 1000W, 850W, 750W, and 650W. Additional PRIME models with both Platinum and Gold efficiency certifications as well as a fanless model are also available.

All of the PRIME Ultra Titanium Series PSUs come with all modular cables and are certified to comply with the 80 Plus Titanium efficiency criteria; the highest available. The power supplies are designed to deliver extremely tight voltage regulation on the three primary rails (+3.3V, +5V and +12V) and they provide superior AC ripple and noise suppression. Add in an upgraded super-quiet 135mm cooling fan with a Fluid Dynamic Bearing and a 12-year warranty, and you have the formula for an outstanding PC power supply.

I just wonder how are you going to clean, while still keeping it under warranty, something that has a 12 year warranty.

I have an original Prime 650 (not Ultra) and would like to know specifically how they differ.

It would seem the Ultra is just a Prime, with a couple of meaningless upgrades. Is this true?

Yes, as we said above, the Ultra is an upgraded PRIME. Along with some minor tweaks to the design (Seasonic does not specify exactly what) the main difference is the longer 12-year warranty - I wouldn't call that meaningless. If you have an original PRIME you should be well served for many years to come.

They did specify it, when they released upgraded Ultra line. See:

Are the PSUs really that quiet? Basically not audible, quieter than the room? My computer's fan go at 450RPM and I have no HDDs to make spinning noises anymore.

Yes, they are very quiet. But sound/noise is subjective. Even though the SPL numbers are hard data different people respond differently to sound. To my ears, this PSU was very quiet - silent until the fan kicked in (no coil whine or electro-mechanical noise). The test lab is relatively cool and quiet (fairly constant 73 deg and 27 dBA) - to the point I opt to turn off the building A/C air handler during testing. Both the background temp and sound level will contribute to your experience of how loud a system is. Hope that helps answer your question.
