FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

Unlike retail package models, the marketingspeak (see Orwell's "newspeak"in 1984) for the SS-350TGM is limited to a single web page, and fairly low key.

There is no mention anywhere of temperature limits for power output. We can assume the PSU is not designed for long term survival at >50°C working ambient.

I took a quick peek inside the unit by undoing four screws. The internal tidiness should not have surprised me, with all the Seasonics I've opened up in the past, but given the small size of the unit, it was still nice to see.


Very tidy inside, with no point-to-point wiring. There are three daughter boards mounted on the main PCB. The main capacitor is a high quality 105°C 420V 220µF.


This angle clearly shows the DC/DC board to which the output connectors are directly mounted, very similar to the board and scheme used in the X series PSUs.


The 80mm fan is a 15mm thin ADDA AD0812MB-D90, rated for 3500rpm and 40dBA. Not exactly quiet at full speed, as is the case for most PSU fans.
