Seasonic X-Series 850W KM3 Power Supply Review

Rating: 9.5.

Seasonic have been consistently releasing some of the finest power supplies for the enthusiast audience this year. This is the reason why their designs are often used by respected companies such as Corsair and BeQuiet! Part of the Seasonic strategy is always to keep an active refresh schedule in place. With this in mind we are analysing their latest KM3 850W model today, the replacement for the award winning KM2 which we reviewed back in September.

The X-Series 850W KM3 is not just a simple refresh however, the internal design is completely different and we will take a look at this shortly. The KM2 was already a very impressive power supply so we are interested to see how far the company can push the new design.

They have three models already in the KM3 range, a 650W, 750W and 850W model all with a single +12V rail, fan controller and new modular cabling.

Leo recently sat through an Intel briefing relating to benchmarking laptops and focusing on performance both with an without the power adapter connected. Throughout, Intel was keen to highlight the AMD drops performance by a higher percentage in their own testing. Luke and Leo discuss this briefing and wonder why Intel is so keen to publicise AMD's weaknesses rather than focusing on Intel's own strengths.
