VISUAL TOUR

It is an unusually stylish looking power supply, with a couple of rounded edges, tough-looking pebbled black paint, and a brush-metal gold-colored inset around the 140mm fan. All the cables, attached and detached, are sleeved. Dimensionally, it is longer than the norm (front-to-back), at around 7.25", compared to the more common ~6".


A stylish look and very nice finish.


There are eight output sockets along with the attached cables. The vent holes on this side might allow a bit of the heated air in the PSU to enter the case, but with such high efficiency, the amount of heat will be very small.

Label boasts all the certifications, including 80 Plus Gold.

OUTPUT CABLES

All the cables are nicely sleeved for a clean tidy look. There are quite a few permanently attached output cables, which kind of undermines the whole idea of detachable cables. Many seem too long. The worst is the attached cable for CPU power which has three different connectors in three breaks on a cable 1.2m long.

Attached

  • 1 - 24P MainBoard (main ATX) - 60cm
  • 1 - 8P, 4P+4P and 4P CPU power connectors all on one awkwardly unwieldy 1.2m cable
  • 1 - 6P + 2P PCIE 50cm
  • 1 - 6P PCIE 50cm

Modular

  • 1 - 2x Molex + 3x SATA 1.1m
  • 1 - 2x Molex + 2x SATA 95cm
  • 1 - 4x SATA 95cm
  • 1 - 2 Molex 65cm
  • 1 - Molex to Floppy adapter, 15cm
  • 1 - 6-pin PCIe 50cm
  • 1 - 8-pin PCIe 50cm
