Appearance and Physical Specifications

On the bottom side of the Seasonic X-750 power supply is a 120mm temperature controlled intake fan that sits behind a honeycomb grill. The fan moves air through the power supply, and out the rear of the case, keeping the ambient system temperature down. A warranty sticker covers one of the screw holes, so if you open up your power supply Seasonic will know, and you'll have voided your warranty in the process. The matte black finish looks and feels very solid, and isn't as prone to scratches and fingerprints as a shiny glossy finish would be.

Taking a look at the fan from the inside reveals it's a Sanyo Denki San Ace 120 (Model 9S1212P4M61), which operates at 12V. Sanyo makes high-quality fans that generally have long life spans, so this is a good sign.

The back of the X-750 power supply is pretty plain. There is the connector for the main power cable and the hard power switch. The Seasonic X-750 doesn't need a 115/230V switch since it supports Active PFC. A honeycomb vent is included for increased airflow through the rear panel.

A-PFC also means improved efficiency, reduced heat and less power usage. The side of the power supply gives you all the electrical information you need for the X-750, including the output of its 12V rails and overall power output.

The front of the Seasonic X-750 lets you populate every modular cable individually, which is especially ideal if you're testing only certain components of a computer system.

There are five slots available for SATA and four-pin Molex cables (each cable can have multiple connectors), and two for PCI Express power connectors. The CPU also gets a pair of dedicated ports, as does the motherboard. We'll next look at the cable bundles that go along with the Seasonic X-750 in their very own carry case.
