Syntech and Seasonic eyes SA Gaming Market for growth
Seasonic is a company that hardly requires any introduction, they are one of the oldest and most reputable computer PSU designers and manufacturers. Their products are held in very high regard by experts and enthusiasts.
Seasonic’s current range on offer at the moment is not only amongst the best PSU’s available but they seem to be challenging themselves to bring continual improvements to their designs. Their beautifully packaged products are presented in such a way that you feel you are opening something extremely special!
In keeping with Syntech’s commitment to supporting the gaming industry, they are not only looking at ways to enrich, sponsor and participate in various projects they have identified the SA Gaming market as an international growth region.
Stephen de Witt, Captain of one of the top gaming teams in South Africa, xTc, comments, “I am fortunate enough to be using the Seasonic X series 1050 / 1250 Modular PSU, it’s been running my machine for nearly a year now but has always made little work of my machine up till now. I always felt that I’m not using this PSU to its full potential. Until I started overclocking, and upgraded my Graphics Card to a Power hungry Dual GPU beast from AMD that puts fear into any power supply! This Graphics card draws a crazy 450-500watts from my power supply alone. The rest of my system, from hard drives, CPU, motherboard, cooling, all the extra fans etc. all draws around 500watts as well. So my pc under load, draws a good 900 – 1000watts at the moment. As I thought to myself, hey this has to be pushing the power supply now, right? Wrong! The cooling design of this PSU makes it stay cool, calm and collected, you can barely hear a thing and I’m still able to place my hand on the PSU and its lukewarm.
Now I’ve tried one other PSU from a different brand, so I know this well designed PSU will last me for a very, very long time.
To add to this, it’s modular! Making cable management a dream. From the boxing, to the cabling, the velvet (yes velvet) bag it is so carefully wrapped in, makes it almost feel like a royal piece of hardware, and maybe it is? It’s the foundation of your computer!
So to anyone looking to buy a top end PSU, with endless power abilities and with an unbeatable build quality, go for Seasonic!”
Wesley Logon from PC Kingz South Africa, says it all. “The Seasonic brand truly speaks for itself. The components used are always of very high quality. The Seasonic M12 850W Power Supply is really quiet, stays cool and runs so stable. Great modular selection. Without a doubt this manufacturer makes the best PSU’s hands down!”
