FOCUS PLUS Gold
Seasonic engineers have created a brand new product line based on advanced technology emanating from many years of intensive active research. The result of this development is the solid FOCUS+ Series, which implements modern design and shows outstanding electrical performance. This power supply is small and entirely modular, which will be hard to resist. It is available in 80 PLUS® Platinum and Gold efficiency ratings.
80 PLUS® Gold
The FOCUS PLUS Gold Series achieves 80 PLUS® Gold certification with its 90 % efficiency at 50 % system load.
Cable-free Connection Design
Seasonic’s engineers have implemented a new design feature, where instead of cables; the back panel and the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) are connected by a copper plate. This breakthrough solution not only lowers the chance of production errors during manual insertion but it also improves output power quality.
Hybrid Silent fan Control
The industry’s first, Seasonic patented, advanced three-phased thermal control achieves optimal between silence and cooling. This Hybrid Silent Fan Control functions in three operational stages: Fanless Mode, Silent Mode, and Cooling Mode.
- Reduced noise without increase in temperature;
- Extended fan life due to the reduced number of fan rotations;
- Optimized heat dissipation at all times;
- Unsurpassed silent performance in Fanless Mode.
Additionally, there is a switch at the back of the power supply which allows users to customize their cooling needs by selecting between the Seasonic S2FC (fan control without Fanless Mode) and the S3FC (fan control including Fanless Mode).
The Fan Control Button
The fan control button can be found on the back of the FOCUS PLUS power supply, next to the power switch. The image here illustrates how to select different fan control modes to suit your need.
DO NOT press the button if you wish to include the Fanless Mode, which means the fan in the power supply will not spin when the power supply is under light loads. Press the button if you wish to have the fan spin at all times, even at lower loads.
Fluid Dynamic Fan Bearing
High performance Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) fans are designed to take advantage of the impact absorbance effects of oil. They are extremely reliable and generate considerably less operating noise and heat than ball bearing fans. The lubrication of the bearing surface reduces friction and vibration and therefore lowers overall power consumption. Due to the effortless, quieter rotations and its robust construction, this reliable fan technology also greatly increases the lifespan of the fan.
How it works
When the fan shaft rotates, high pressure oil drifts along the grooves of the bearing sleeve to generate a thin layer of lubrication between the bearing faces. As the speed increases, so does dynamic oil pressure and the shaft is lifted from the bearing to create smooth, effortless rotations. The herringbone shape of the groves helps to efficiently channel the lubricant and avert leakage.
The shallow depth helps a lot for space, the fanless mode is helpful, the unit came with a lot of goodies, and I dont really see anything else I need to whine about. (Read full review)
During our testing the FOCUS PLUS 650W Gold power supply delivered excellent voltage regulation, excellent AC ripple and noise suppression, and very good efficiency... (Read full review)
Technically, the FOCUS PLUS Gold is rock solid. Noise suppression is worthy of another mention, and the efficiency levels are high, easily achieving 80 Plus Gold certification. (Read full review)
So, users who are looking at a budget where numbers be damned is not an option are getting a very nice deal out of this new lineup from Seasonic top to bottom that we have seen so far. (Read full review)
