A Closer Look – Exterior
Power Supply Unit
The unit features a 120mm fan, which is pretty good as many small SFX units feature the smaller 80mm fans, so this bodes well for the cooling of the unit and lower fan RPM under load, we hope. However, this does mean the unit is 125 long, where most SFX units are a more compact 100mm, although this shouldn’t cause many issue with most builds, it’s worth keeping in mind.
On the base, we’ve got the main specification sticker, as you can see we’ve got powerful amps on the rails, especially on the +12V rail, where we’ll likely be putting the most load, such as with a high-end graphics card.
Everything is neat and tidy here, with a range of connectors and a sticker which details each one. We’ve got the 24-pin motherboard connector, an 8-pin CPU, two 6-pin peripheral connectors and single 8-pin for the PCI-E.
The side is fairly standard, with a tidy looking branding sticker.
A few serial numbers and QC stickers on the other side, nothing fancy, but then again, it doesn’t need to be.
Lots of ventilation around the back, always a good sign. There’s also the master powers switching for when you need to fully power off your system.
The included cables are of a good quality, although they do look a little basic. There’s a 24-pin, 2 x SATA/Molex, 8-pin to dual 6+2-pin, and a 4+4-pin for the CPU.
