Seasonic PRIME 850W Gold PSU Review

Rating: 8.5.

Today we take a look at another member of the Seasonic PRIME Gold family – this time in a 850 watt capacity. The PRIME Gold series is more cost effective than the PRIME Platinum and Titanium units while still offering stellar build quality, a pure modular layout and high grade Japanese capacitors.

Seasonic have won many awards on KitGuru over the years due to the overall consistency and quality throughout their series. While their Platinum and Titanium series have taken the headlines in recent months, the Gold PRIME supplies target the widest enthusiast audience demographic.
