Seasonic X-Series 1050W Power Supply (SS-1050XM2)

Rating: 9.0.

Today we look at the new X-Series 1050W power supply from Seasonic, a refresh on the older model which was hot news back in 2012. This new model is a pure modular design with 80 Plus Gold Certification and has received a handful of upgrades for 2014.

The 2014 Seasonic X-Series 1,050 Watt XM2 power supply features an upgrade to the Hybrid Fan control circuit. It incorporates a new IC which controls the fan based on ‘Hysteresis’. It may be a confusing term for many, although we mentioned it in our review of the Seasonic Platinum 1200W model. For those interested this page on Wikipedia reads Hysteresis is the dependence of the output of a system not only on its current input, but also on its history of past inputs. The dependence arises because the history affects the value of an internal state. To predict its future outputs, either its internal state or its history must be known.If a given input alternately increases and decreases, a typical mark of hysteresis is that the output forms a loop as in the figure.’

In layman’s terms, the new Hysteresis IC controller will reduce the ‘on/off’ cycle of the fan and further improve energy utilisation in Fanless and Silent modes.

The other major upgrade is the addition of a Dual Copper Conduction Bar on the PCB for optimised high current conduction – this will help enhance efficiency and performance.

    I’m always amazed at the importance many PC enthusiasts place on mobo, GPU, PSU, Fans, etc. color or graphics. These people must not actually use the hardware, they just sit and view it all day long. Even with a clear side paneled PC case, do people really just sit and stare at their PC to see the colors of the different components? If so they are missing out on a lot of fun. They should push the power “on” button for their PC and discover a whole new world…
