A Detailed Look
The Seasonic Platinum 660W power supply features a black matte finish and measures 160mm (6.3”) deep. It uses a single 120mm fan on the bottom for cooling.
The backside panel features an open grill and includes a power receptacle and master On-Off switch. The honey comb grill allows air to exhaust out of the power supply for cooling the internal components with minimal turbulence and noise.
The Platinum 660 uses a high quality 120mm, Sanyo Denki San Ace fan (9S1212F404) that incorporates dual ball bearings for enhanced reliability and long life. The 7 sculptured blades are designed to optimize airflow and reduce noise. The fan features Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to integrate with the variable speed Seasonic Hybrid Silent Fan Control circuit.
One of the unique features of the Platinum 660W PSU is the ability to operate in either S3FC fanless-silent-cooling mode or S2FC silent-cooling mode. A small two-position selector switch on the front panel allows selecting Hybrid (S3FC fanless-silent-cooling mode) or Normal (S2FC silent-cooling mode). The Hybrid S3FC mode is designed to turn off the fan at lower power levels and the Normal S2FC mode keeps the fan running all the time. The new high efficiency design of the Platinum Series also helps by generating less waste heat. And if you aren't abscessed with running fanless and prefer a little air movement with a virtually silent fan, then the Normal S2FC silent-cooling mode is for you!

Seasonic is always my first
Seasonic is always my first choice when I am in the market for a new psu. Not only are the psu’s excellent, but so too is their customer service.
Just got two of these and
Just got two of these and both of them had coils noise and one also coil whine. Sent them back, very disappointed. (Tested on several platforms and the noise was persistend, even on professional APC UPS)
If your unit produces coil
If your unit produces coil whine or noise, the fix is often to enter BIOS and make sure all power saving options are turned on.
Of course, if yours is defective that is another issue.
I had coil noise even when
I had coil noise even when using a paperclip to start the PSU. It’s more annoying than any fan.
How about the Seasonic
How about the Seasonic SS-760XP2 (Platinum 760) in this series? How’s the performance, any issues, coil noise or fan loudness or performance issues?
