Examination:

After unwrapping the plastic packaging around the power supply we were pleased with the highly polished metal shell. The “Titanium finish” proved to be quite impressive, as it was a near mirror finish (as demonstrated by Tux in the picture below). The power supply has 2 blue 80mm LED fans to keep the unit cool and also to illuminate the unit and its surroundings. There are also two clear side windows to allow the user to see the insides of the power supply and for the light to escape out of the unit.


The power connectors themselves were plentiful. There are two SATA connectors, eight 4-pin molex connectors, two floppy connectors, one P4 connector, one 6-pin connector, and of course one main 20-pin connector. Unfortunately only the main 20-pin connector is sleeved. The other cables are not sleeved and nor are they twisted. However, the lack of sleeving and twisting only detracts from the aesthetics of the unit and will not affect performance in any way.


After examining the insides of the unit we found that this was a Wintech PSU. Wintech power supplies are usually of average to above average quality in terms of reliability and performance. Much to our disappointment, there are almost no heatsinks inside the unit. However the unit is set up such that all the critical components receive direct airflow, so the heatsinks might not be necessary. We also noticed that the top and bottom halves of the supply looked suspiciously similar and that they may in fact be two weaker units crammed in a box. However we were not able to determine this because it would require further disassembly of the unit. Also in terms of weight, the power supply was rather light. It weighed about as much as the old Thermaltake Silent Purepower 420W that we had and was certainly lighter than the Fortron 530W. Weight is usually a good indicator of the quality of a power supply, but we won’t let that be the deciding factor.

Shorting the green (“Power On”) and gray (“Power Good”) wires on the 20-pin connector allowed us to turn on the power supply and admire the blue light and polished surface without having the supply installed in a case. The appearance was very impressive and would definitely look very nice in a windowed system.
