Seasonic SS-520FL review: a 520W passive PSU

Our colleagues at TechPowerUp recently published a comprehensive test on a recent high-end PSU from Seasonic: the Platinum Series Fanless 520W. As its name suggests, it is a power supply of 520W with passive cooling, 80Plus Platinum certified.

As a reminder, this standard requires a minimum of 89% of efficiency at full load and 90% above 20% of utilization, which should limit the heat, an important point for a fanless PSU.

As always with Seasonic, the connectivity of this block is quite comprehensive and completely modular. Thus, we find two 6+2 pin PCI-E, five Molex and six S-ATA connectors. Finally, note that this power supply has a 7 years warranty, more than enough to see it coming.

However, we will still need to pay nearly $160 for the offer, but maybe the price is justified by the cleanliness of the delivered current and the effectiveness of its security. To remove any doubt, just read the review of our colleagues.
