A Closer Look – Exterior


The build quality on this PSU is excellent. It has a good weight to it and the outer casing looks and feels durable. There’s a big fan grille on the top, with a lot of ventilation for the built-in Corsair fan.

On the base, just a large specifications sticker.

As you can see, it has got a mighty 83.3A on the single 12V rail; you’ll never have to worry about a lack of power for your CPU/GPUs!

This is where thing get interesting, as there is a huge array of connectors on offer here. With six peripheral/SATA connectors, as well as six 6+2 pin PCI, a 4+4 for the CPU, and the motherboard 24-pin, you’re not going to be short of connectivity, even on a multi-GPU configuration.

Around the back, there’s a lot of ventilation that runs right to the edges, giving as much area as possible to exhaust heat from the unit. This is going to help greatly with the zeroRPM fan mode and help keep everything cool and silent as often as possible.

Cabling

there are a lot of cables to contend with here, but you’ll be glad to know that all the peripheral cables are flat, meaning routing them will be an easy task. There’s a huge amount of SATA and Molex connectors too, so huge banks of storage should prove easy to connect.

The heavy-duty cables for the motherboard and PCIe devices are thicker, but come with all black cables, black braiding and black connectors, so they should blend nicely into your build. They’re all very high quality too, so should last you many years of system rebuilds.
