Seasonic PRIME 1000W Gold PSU Review

Rating: 9.0.

Over the last month we have reviewed the full range of PRIME Platinum power supplies and today we take our first look at the new 1000 watt GOLD unit within the PRIME range. This is the first of the new 1000 watt power supplies from Seasonic to break in under the £200 price point while still offering a pure modular layout with the high levels of build quality we expect from Seasonic.

Seasonic have scored higher consistently than any other power supply manufacturer in KitGuru reviews over the last 5 years. The PRIME Gold range sits below both Titanium and Platinum ranges which we have reviewed in recent months. Seasonic assured us that their GOLD PRIME range, while cheaper than the others- will still incorporate Japanese capacitors.

The Seasonic PRIME Platinum 1000W is £219.95 inc vat (HERE). The Seasonic PRIME Gold 1000W we are reviewing today is £20 cheaper, coming in at £199.99 inc vat (HERE).
