The Seasonic S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT 650W is jet black in colour and has a large 120mm intake fan
which helps expel the air through the honey comb grill at the back of the power
The back of the power supply is rather plain, there is a huge honey comb grid which allows
air to exit the power supply with the least amount of turbulence. On the
right you will see the main power connector and hard power switch. Noticeably absent
is the 115/230V switch but then again the Seasonic S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT 650W
doesn't need one since it supports active power factor correction.
Seasonic wraps the cables in woven black plastic mesh
sleeves and heatsink to keep things tidy. The S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT 650W is equipped with six Serial ATA power
connectors (split over two lines), two six pin 12V PCI Express videocard connectors, nine molex
power connectors, a 4 pin ATX 12V connector and an eight pin ESP12V
Interestingly enough the S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT does not natively include
floppy drive power connectors but Seasonic does bundle a molex to two power port
floppy drive connector cable along with the unit. The main ATX power connector
is 55cm long to the connector, and the other cables are ~60 cm to the first
plug on the daisy-chain.
The Molex to FDD power connector Y-splitter is shown
above. Since floppies are going the way of AOL, it's not surprising that
manufacturers are starting to include them as extras, much like SATA power
cables used to be. Next, PCSTATS will crack the Seasonic S12 Energy Plus SS-650HT 650W power supply open and
take a look around inside.
