XFX Pro 1250W Black Edition Modular Power Supply Review

XFX are using a Protechnic Magic MGA13512YF fan which is 135mm and rated 12V 0.50A.

The Seasonic DC to DC convertor design is very clean with several rows of heatsinks separating the components. These may seem small, but with 80 Plus Gold Efficiency and the large overhead fan, there should be no ambient temperature problems.

The XFX Black Edition power supply utilizes high quality Japanese capacitors throughout with the primary stage using three high quality Nippon Chemi Con capacitors rated for 105c operation @ 420v 390uF.

The design of this unit replaces traditional wired connections with direct pin to port connections. This reduces the heat generated by the wiring which has the subsequent benefit of reducing lost power, ensuring improved voltage. The unit includes Total Power Protection (OPP), Over Voltage Protection (OVP), Over Current Protection (OCP), Short Circuit Protection (SCP), and Over Temperature Protection (OTP).

  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.
