The delivery of the SS-1050W XP3 is adequate. Since PSUs with this kind of output power are often used for PCs with five or more graphics cards, it would have been nice if Seasonic added another pair of PCI-E 6+2 Pin cables, which can be connected to the EPS/ATX 12V 8Pin connector.


  


With this power supply Seasonic is offering a single rail design regarding 12V. In total you get 87A, which can be turned into heat by the graphics cards for instance.
