Seasonic Prime ULTRA Platinum 850W Power Supply Review

Surely not another great power supply from Seasonic, tweaked and upgraded for 2018?

  • Brian

    That is a really impressive design, but the price is only for a few people methinks.

    Think high end media center for a noise sensitive person.

  • Eran D

    Nice design, has everything, then some. wattage is a bit low for £110 however. 850W power supplies are under 100 quid now.

    I guess you pay for the lack of noise emissions.

  • Myss_tree

    A roaring Gorilla would indicate its damn noisy to me … lol
    The Seasonic this is modelled on is only another £7.20 which i would plump for if i was in the market for a fanless PSU.
