The Seasonic Prime TX-1300 is one of the best performing PSUs in today’s market, in overall performance, noise output and efficiency. The lower capacity than its big brother, the TX-1600, helps it achieve top performance. Read the full review to find out what you get with 440 dollars, its current price!
The Seasonic Prime TX-1300 is included in my best ATX v3.0 & PCIe 5.0 PSU picks article.
If you check our best ATX v3.x PSU article, you will notice that the Seasonic Prime TX-1300 achieves first place in the >1250W PSUs in almost all sections. This triggered my interest in providing a detailed review of this model.
I have already reviewed the following units from Seasonic in 2023:
Besides Titanium efficiency, in the Cybenetics scheme, the TX-1300 also has a Cybenetics-A++ noise rating, which is the best, meaning below 15 dBA average noise output. The maximum operating temperature is 50°C, but during the mining craziness and to avoid any problems, Seasonic started derating its PSUs at that temperature, stating that they can deliver only 80% of their max power continuously. If you want full power around the clock, you must remain at 40°C. Since the Prime series is backed up by the longest warranty possible in a power supply, 12 years, Seasonic had to ensure there would be no problems in the long run. With a price of 440 dollars, the TX-1300 is far from affordable, but the super long warranty and the top-notch build quality, as you will notice in the part analysis section, are two things that don’t come cheap.
