Seasonic has introduced the X-series late last year, a new generation of power supplies, which meant the first time since a long time again a technological leap forward for power supplies, the only disadvantage of the series so far was limited to two models with 650 and 750 watts. Seasonic has tackled this problem and now has the X-series revised and expanded, nac h already presented Fanless series with 400 and 460 watts is the next model, which is introduced by Seasonic, a 560-watt semi-passive model.
The 560W model is currently available in low price comparison listings , the suggested retail price is more is Seasonic by the end of the year, and the other new X models come onto the market. In addition to the X-660 and X-760, which models the X-650 and replace X-750, appear to be three more models with 850W, 1000W and 1200W, exact dates are not fixed yet, but Seasonic expects that will be available until the end of all models.
The positive impression because of the outer packaging is continued while viewing the content, the power supply, which is still in a velvet storage bag is well protected in a foam form. In addition to the power supply cable, a carrying bag found with two compartments in which the connecting cable to the modular cable management and power cord are housed, completing the supplied with a handbook with a section in a reasonable German, cable ties, four screws and a sticker.
The manual is the same, as for the X-400FL for the entire revised X-Series, it is quite common to find product information without technical details and the mandatory installation instructions, the X-560 comes in a rather simple design of the X-series, which seems quite high, however. The case of the X-560 is similar to the X-400FL, of course, apart from the numerous vents of the X-400 Fanless, the fan grill of the X-560 is still as before, slightly curved outward, but now includes the sinking flush with the casing so that the problems of the previous X models come with certain cases no longer an issue.
Under the honeycomb lattice with large openings operates a 120mm fans from Sanyo Denki, which is already in the siblings X-650 and X-750 was used. The cooling concept of the X-560 is classically designed, ie, that is by the fan sucked air ejected through the rear of and apart from a pair of micro-ventilation slots on the inside are located on the power supply no further openings.
