Sure, there are higher powered units on the market. Sure, there are a few units that can match this power supplies DC output quality. Sure, there are a few units that are built as well as this unit; OK most of those are Seasonic units too. However, there really aren’t any power supplies with as good
Was the long wait for this unit to hit the marketplace worth it? Yes. Have I seen a unit outperform this one for voltage stability? No. There's only one more question that needs to be asked, people: how fast can you buy one?
Extremely good voltage stability - best

I installed this in the Fractal Design Define R2 XL Titanium E-ATX. The one molex that has 4 connectors that goes into the mobo couldn't reach through the back of the case and then in again. So I had to route it the old school way, in the front. The rest manage to stay in the back and hidden. I'm running 6x140's including the heat sink ones, sli 670 gtx 4 gig, 16 gigs ram, 27 inch monitor, ssd, and 2 hdd's. On hybrid it doesn't even ramp up the fan playing games maxed. Still quiet. Actually I cant hear it. Very stable voltages. I would buy it again. I would wait to get it on sale though.
IF you need 1000w and great efficiency, pick this unit up. Seasonic also makes the xfx version of this and the antec version of this from what i remember so if those are cheap, get those instead since you are basically getting the same unit, but with a different fan
There's only 3 Platinum 1000 Watt PSU's out there, and this is the one to get. Compared to the XFX, and ANTEC, it offers Seasonic reliability which is at the time of this review, the best PSU manufacturer out there. However, it doesn't mean the other manufacturer is bad, it's just not up to par with Seasonic; so you should always do a little research to see if you can save a few bucks for your needs from hardware reviewers. In the meanwhile however, I feel that I can use this PSU for years to come, my hope is that I can use it for 10 years at least. For those who's worried about the Power output for over the edge high end system, the power requirement for PC components will only get smaller as technology evolves. So give it a serious thought before you buy a 1200W 80+ Gold PSU
Overall this unit delivers on what it promises. It delivers loads of power while making little to no noise. Seasonic provides a plethora of cables for every type of connection available. Lots of SATA connectors for multiple drives in different locations. The only thing I can possibly nitpick about is that the motherboard cable is a bit short to run through cable management on a full tower case, it still reaches, but the PSU had to be locked in place with the cable attached first.
I usually buy Silverstone or Corsair PSUs, and I have found both to be decent. I always wondered why the Seasonics were so much more money. I finally broke down and bought one after my Silverstone packed it in (I was lucky, it didn't hurt my mobo or i7-980 when it went). Now I see why they are so pricey. This thing oozes quality, is super quiet, and I am sure come summer time it will dispense Ice Cream Sundaes. Well maybe not the last one, but I am glad I bought it - it's nice to know I don't have to worry about that aspect of my system for a long time to come.
Not much to say really, it's a great PSU and makes no coil whine or fan noises. I have this powering a Tri-Fire 6990+6970 build. Just put it in your case and you'll never have to worry about it again.
