Determining PSU Wattage without Labels

Hi all,

Recently acquired a semi build pc. I know that it is the Gold Series Seasonic. Just don't know the wattage. I looked all around but there's no labels(the previous owner removed all of them). Any suggestions?

Thanks

There isn't any way to test that without very expensive equipment. Can you take pictures of it? So we can at least determine what series it is and what the lowest possible wattage is.

Yeah, make some photos of the PSU and also count all the cables.

Thanks for all your help. I've determined that this is the 650W PSU. After a bit of research the model is the Seasonic SS-650KM3. Looks exactly like the one I got. They did not make a 550W in that series. The 750W (Seasonic SS-750KM3) fan housing is different than the 650W.

Sounds like pretty decent deductive reasoning.
