Incredible deal. This thing will handle Crossfire/SLI rigs no problem, and the efficiency and noise of the unit is fantastic.

Nice, was going to grab this the last time they had it (what was it, a week ago?) but I was literally a minute too late, I applied the $50 discount and it worked, but by the time I clicked to confirm my order the time had expired. I was distracted talking to a buddy and totally lost track of the time while doing the order. Actually had to cancel the order and the reason I chose as to why I canceled was "price was too high", so they must have brought this deal back just for my sake, so you're all welcome.

w00t! I'm in for one.

Never hurts to have a backup power supply in your closet.

Funny thing is, I spotted this deal in my email, last night, but didn't *feel* like spending $100.

Tonight, I was in a panic to get it, before the offer expired. Go figure.

I think the "bunny", in the post above, planted a seed in my mind!

My quad-GPU cruncher froze twice when I was trying to get it to work again. Not quite sure what's wrong with it, but it could be an unstable PSU. Currently has a Xion PowerReal 800W non-PFC PSU in it. (SuperFlower?)

I would love to get this SeaSonic, but I'm out of spare money for the month. Maybe next time.

Was waiting for some Black Friday deals on a PSU but I this will do! I don't think it can get much better... 750W + fully modular + GOLD + top brand name for $100 shipped... I'll take!

Yikes. How much does it usually go for in the US? In the UK I'm seeing it for about £120 ($190 USD).

don't worry - there will definitely be a next time...and even if its only the $40 discount for the next few sales, getting it at $110 shipped is still a steal of a deal...

I think MRSP is $150, although usually goes for a bit less

well i guess MSRP is down to $120 now, b/c the X750 is on sale again for $99.99 shipped, this time after the $20 promo code EMCYTZT31560 (ends 3/28).

Is this still a great deal on a really good PS worth grabbing for vague future use? Edit: nm, already have the 650w version for that; probably paid the same.

Yes, if you need that much power $100 is still a great price on a quiet, efficient, top-grade PSU.

It's more power than you need though, unless you're running 20 platter drives or two high-end graphics cards in SLI / Crossfire.

I have a spare one of these laying around, but it's the old style with the ugly cables.


I need flat black cables

^That's why I'm waiting for another deal on Antec's Earthwatts 380. 200w~ of actual used power should be enough for me going into future builds.

Yeah....about that.

If your object is efficiency, a X750 is as efficient at it's lower end as a EW 380 is at peak efficiency.(way outside of its ratings and what should be a "bad" place for it).

This is why you should always ALWAYS actually read reviews for tested results instead of assuming. The X750 performs outstandingly even under poor conditions while the same cannot be said for the Antec EW380.

JG tested the X750 (older revision) pulling
86.2% @ 10% load
Techpowerup tested the X750 KM3 (current revision) pulling
90.1% @ 13%load
88.8% @ 10.5% load

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/S...c/X-750/6.html


Compare that to the Earthwatts which got 87.5% at 50% efficiency (it's best score)
It dips into the upper 70s when it dips under 20%
http://www.anandtech.com/show/3902/a...d-green-380w/6

It takes running a x750 @ under 7% load or other equally unlikely scenarios to lose to an Earthwatts in it's prime.
