The bottom of the unit has a nice 120mm fan, this will keep components cool while being quiet.
The power rating sticker from the side of the PSU is here for you to drool over. The combined 12v rail load is a maximum of 900w, which is 60watts more than the Antec Quattro 1000w we reviewed a bit ago. Though if someone has a rig that can test this claimed maximum, then they should really reconsider if 1000w is a big enough PSU for them.†
The modular connectors on this PSU have the 12v rail they feed off of clearly labelled above the modular connector. This is a good idea as it lets you easily know if you are balancing the load evenly across the four rails. The PCIe Cables being green is also a quick way to make sure you are plugging in the right cables where, and ensures you donít have to worry about spreading their load over several rails.
The back of the PSU also has an 80mm fan, combine this with the 120mm on the bottom, and this PSU will surely be cooled adequately under all conditions.
The PSUís cable set were listed in the specifications page of this review, but a quick reminder of what is included follows: 4x 6pin PCIe, 2x 8pin PCIe, 4pin CPU power, Molex power, and SATA power. The thing on the far right is a Velcro strip that tied the main24pin wires together during shipping. Now letís get down to the tests!
