Sea Sonic Announces its Flagship PRIME Titanium Line of Power Supplies

During the past forty years Sea Sonic has never stopped setting new industry standards. Its continuous focus on innovation and perfecting power supply design has made Sea Sonic the leader in power supply design and manufacturing. Like many times before, Seasonic has again arrived at a major breakthrough and it is proud to announce its latest innovation: The Prime Series.

Initially, our engineers have set out to create the quietest active cooling power supplies. The creation of the PRIME Series is a renewed testimony of Sea Sonic's determination to push the limits of power supply design in every aspect. This elegant-looking, exclusive lineup of new products will include 80 PLUS Titanium - in the range of 650 W to 1000 W and Platinum-rated units in the range of 550 W to 1200 W, with excellent electrical characteristics, top-level components and fully modular cabling.

The culmination of the PRIME Series is the result of Sea Sonic's close collaboration with graphics card manufacturers during the development phase. Undoubtedly, the electrical performance of the series is unsurpassed by any analog power supply on the market today. Seasonic PRIME Series power supplies are made with industrial grade components, employ an innovative circuit design with Zero PCB Cabling, and go through rigorous testing to ensure each unit's amazing load regulation, performance and efficiency. Clean power and prolonged hold-up time (that doubles the current industry standard) are the main characteristics for the ultimate stable performance of the PRIME series power supplies. Sea Sonic strives for the utmost customer satisfaction by demonstrating its commitment to reliable quality with a ten-year manufacturer's warranty.

Although I presently own a SuperFlower LeadEx based unit (The EVGA Supernova P2 850W), I can't deny I would very much like to see Seasonic do a one up routine on them. I won't need it, this is already good enough for me, but competition never hurts!

And to do such efficiency with double the hold up time certainly SOUNDS impressive...

I still have Seasonic-made PSU bought in 2007 powering an old PC. Who would have thought that it'd past its 5-year warranty and still going strong. Been hammering it down since the first day too. When it comes to PSU, I only trust Seasonic and Corsair (doesn't matter who the OEM is, the design and component choice itself are well-thought).

I also use the Cooler Master V1000 (Seasonic KM3 platform). Great PSU! But I would sell it to buy one of these...

That's a very clean and simple layout, and a ten-year warranty is class-leading... but I bet they'll cost a ton. I'd like to know the reasoning behind the extended hold-up time, since many PSUs today can't even hit the 16ms ATX standard.

Heh, why do they ALWAYS have to release good stuff after I buy something like that. I like my BeQuiet Dark Power 11 Pro unit, but this one is neat. Just look at the components! It's all nice and "not crammed". It means it'll cool better and run longer. Which tells by a 10 years warranty.

I only wish i needed one...these look extremely good. I bet even the 650w unit goes for no less than $180.

Cool!
Perfect timing for my new build, but when?
I suppose that the smallest will come last? 650W?

I really hope that the PSUs are physically smaller, so they fit in to more compact cases while leaving cable management room.

Been buying SeaSonic units exclusively for the last 5 years. I guess when the Antec in my home Win2008 server quits working, one of these PRIME units will be my next purchase.

Finally a worth upgrade to my ancient Coolermaster Real Power M520 which is still powering my main PC. That 650W Titanium rated supply is looking really good.

Now Gold standard will be minimum.
I don't know why all companies made same PSU cables...
I would make all cables rounded, rubberized, same as power cord and on end nice plastic finish to cover wires and connector same as end of power cord or USB cable or similar things.
Only ends of connectors will be compatible with all hardware, everything else would be completely different.
That would be accept from market, special in hard core RIGs for people who are want fast and nice solutions and excellent cable management.

Ten-Year Warranty
Just when I thought that the 7 year warranty on my 1000-watt Platinum was a lot. :p

I can't say I have any complaints about my Seasonic unit or ones I've bought for other people. Simply a quality brand.

Coil whine on the Platinum series has been a common problem ever since it came out.

Its not a problem on all of the Platinum PSU´s but a good chunck of them have noticeable coil whine on them.

This is common knowledge so its nothing new.

This is more of an QA issue than a poor design by SeaSonic. I currently own a Platinum 660, X-750 KM3, X-400 Fanless, M12D 650 and S12-2 520. None of them produces audible coil whine.

BTW almost all PSUs have some sort of coil whine. It's just the intensity is so low and masked by the noises produced by other components inside the case that users won't notice it.

Now if you're building a fanless silent PC, then yes the coil whine could get really annoying. In thise case RMA the unit.

Yeah, not really common knowledge and not something I've experienced on either Platinum I have. Thanks for the explanation, though.

Same experience. If my platinum has coil whine, it's considerably quieter than the rest of my machine or any other coil whine I've heard in the past. I've heard people saying that they've had coil whine with Seasonic units but I've yet to experience that with the two gold units I bought for other people and the platinum I have myself.
