Seasonic's component selection and design focus on delivering the highest efficiency possible while keeping noise output low. A full bridge topology and LLC resonant converter are used on the primary side. On the secondary side, FETs regulate the +12V rail and a couple of DC-DC converters handle the minor rails.
There is a dedicated buck converter IC for the -12V rail's rectification, rather than a plain diode. Although this rail is insignificant, it can still kill a PSU, so it's nice to see a proper IC used for its generation, enabling overload protection.
Here are some photos of the PSU’s major parts:
