XFX Pro 1250W Black Edition Modular Power Supply Review

The XFX Pro 1250W Black Edition ships in a protective cover with a sticker sealing the unit inside.

The XFX Pro 1250W Black Edition is a very attractive looking power supply, and more intricate than many others currently on the market.

The rear of the power supply is fully vented with a large power button and power connector offset to the side.

There are several rows of ports for the modular cables as shown above. There is a sticker on the chassis which highlights the dual switch operation – hybrid and normal. We detailed the hybrid mode on the first page of the review.

  1. I love their chassis design, thats not seasonic. They are masters of presentation.

  2. Well thats extremely pretty and well designed. but £220? I guess for the target audience its small change, but I think ill pass. What price is the 1000W?

  3. Seasonic rock. nice design. doesnt look like they cut any corners with the caps.

  4. I absolutely love the photos on this site. killer.

  5. hi, do you use any any surt10000xlt ups power supply ?

  7. Yeah, very nice indeed. They seem to use a metal chassis and clip an outer section to make it look quite stylish. Stands out a mile IMO.

  8. £220 might seem like a lot of cash, but people still underestimate the need for a power supply when running high end enthusiast components. It is the biggest, single failure of many systems, causing destroyed motherboards, cpus and graphics cards.

    My friend bought a cheap ass far east make in a local store and he was forever deailing with BSOD’s, crashes, lock outs. We narrowed it down to the PSU> he was furious.

    What an idiot. 🙂

  9. Mean to say, I like the Corsair range of units, I bought one, cost me a little extra over another make, but it really is a false economy long term.

  10. Looks great and performs well, but it has to be a small audience.

    What do you think I should buy for a HD6970 and a Core i7 2600k? something around 750W?

  11. @ david, something like this would be fine

  12. lovely. wicked and pure overkill.

    What would demand more power Two GTX 590’s or four HD 6970s ? I can’t see any system taking over 1000 Watts, even with a ton of hard drives etc.

  13. Wow, nice power supply, looks great too. XFX seem to have this market sorted.

  14. Ordered one today, not sure when ill get it. thanks for review.

  15. The design is great, I think power supplies need to be better looking in 2011. All the same ugly matt black or white paintwork. I know that isn’t the main buying factor, but hey this would look friggin awesome in a custom build with side window and LED lighting.
