    Default PSU opinion

    Hi guys

    I just bought this PSU for my rig

    SeventeamSeventeam

    I would like to know if it was a nice choice

    My rig is a 4770K @ 4.5 and GTX 780 SLI more 5 Har Drives

    And about a single ou multiple rail 12V? I don`t know if this PSU uses a single or multiple, and what`s the diference?

    Thanks guys

    Never heard of that manufacturer. The PSU is the most critical component in your system. Never skimp. Seasonic is probably the best, but I've had good luck with OCZ and CoolerMaster PSU's too. There are other great manufacturers besides these three. Some of the guys here will put a word in soon I'm sure. Look for the consensus.
    2nd Rig: AMD FX-8120; Cooler Master Glacer 240L; Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3; 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 1600MHz; 2 x PowerColor HD 7870 Myst. Ed. (Tahiti LE); Fractal Design Arc XL; SeaSonic X Series 850W
    3rd Rig: AMD A6-3650; Asetek 550LC; Asus F1A75-M Pro; 8GB Kingston HyperX; XFX HD 6670 1GB GDDR5; Antec 300; Thermaltake TR2 650W

    Seasonic is my favorite, but Corsair, works too. I like CoolerMaster's large power PSUs also.

    I read the specs on your PSU and they seem OK, but I have never heard of that brand either. I hope that you'll post in the future about it's reliability or if you have problems with it..

    Seventeam Electronics has been designing and manufacturing PC/IPC power supplies since 1986. Because of our specialized knowledge of PC/IPC power supplies and with 25 years of manufacturing experience in Taiwan and Guangdong Province China, Seventeam has the ability to satisfy our customer's OEM or ODM requirements.

    Seventeam Electronics Company is a company that has flown under the consumer power supply radar for some time in the US even though it has been making power supplies for close to 20 years. This is for good reason as a quick search of its website shows a large number of server oriented offerings that would not be noticed by most enthusiast consumers. This product structuring has changed a bit over the last few years as we have seen a number of Seventeam based power supplies in the US consumer market from Ultra, SilverStone, and Cooler Master.


    Great spec's 1400 watt, 80+ gold certified, singe 12 volt rail, seems to be just what the doctor ordered

    ST-1400PSZ Feature
    • Conforms to EPS 12V V2.91 specifications
    • Full range input voltage: 90-264Vac
    • Active PFC (Power Factor Correction) > 0.99
    • High Standard compatibility:
      - Support the latest VGA card and CPU
    • Single (or sextuple independent) +12V rail, providing powerful output Voltage
    • High Efficiency >88%
    • 135mm ultra silent fan delivers efficient airflow
    • Includes a fan-control button, which provides an immediate cool-down solution whenever necessary.
    • Tri-color LED indicator

      Orange:Stand-by mode
      Red :abnormal condition
    • Comb-shaped heat sink made from highly conductive metal: low drag delivers better heat dissipation.
    • Uses DC-DC and SR (Synchronous Rectification) circuit constructions
    • High quality Capacitors and Solid Capacitors for maximum reliability and stability
    • PSU Protection Functions:OCP、OVP、UVP、OPP、SCP
    • Hybrid cable management: fixed 24Pin main and EPS 8Pin cables; modular PCI-E, SATA, HDD, FDD cables.

    I think you did good they make a very good power supply, and use nothing but high end Japanese capacitors
    your specs are great!!
