A Closer Look – Exterior
Power Supply Unit
The SFX form factor is very compact as we’ve already stated and so an 80mm fan is the choice for cooling.
Both sides are plain with one side having some holes for additional ventilation.
On the bottom is the sticker with power details and certifications. be quiet! warn customers about removing the cover – but we went ahead and did it anyway on the next page! (and I am still alive to tell the tale…)
At the cable end we find a little more ventilation, all of the fixed cables and a screw holding the cover to an internal heatsink for heat dissipation.
At the rear is a power switch, some hexagonal mesh and a kettle lead input which supports 100 to 240v input ranges.
The cabling is fairly modest as this is only a 300W unit. We’ve got a 24 pin, one PCIe 6+2 pin, a CPU 4 pin, four SATA, one molex and a FDD.
