Final Thoughts and Conclusions
Seasonic has once again taken a very good power supply and made it even better. The enhancements made to the X-Series XM2-1250 translate to excellent performance, high efficiency and the ability to operate in silent-fanless mode at lower power levels. Throw in a 7-year warranty, a great assortment of all modular cables, really tight voltage regulation, clean DC outputs and you have one very good power supply!
The Seasonic X-Series XM2-1250 power supply should start entering North American retail channels in August 2014 with an expected MSRP of $239~$249 USD.
