I've been looking at the SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W as a possible upgrade, trying to stay as low as possible cost-wise and get a decent PSU with the right wattage for my system, I've never had a SeaSonic PSU so I am curious how those stand up?
Or if anyone has any other recommendations for a PSU upgrade I'm open to suggestions, in the future I might add water-cooling to my system as well, since the Devils Canyon chip runs on the warm side, and also based on my current build, it estimates under 400W usage, so if a lower watt PSU would work, I'd be find going lower wattage to reduce a little cost for a good brand.
Any thoughts/opinions are appreciated.
