The visual appearance of Newton R3 Series PSUs is proof of Fractal Design's commitment to providing innovative computer components infused with stylish, elegant, contemporary Scandinavian design.
Single, powerful 12V rail
SLI (800W and up) and CrossFireX Certified
Long-life ball-bearing fan
80 PLUS® Platinum certified efficiency Newton R3 Series PSUs meet the highest efficiency specifications currently available for consumer-grade power supplies. This efficiency produces both positive environmental impact, as well as reduces electricity bills. Additionally, because the Newton R3 Series PSUs generate less heat, they provide power at lower fan speeds, which results in reduced noise levels.
Excellent electrical performance Newton R3 Series PSUs feature excellent DC voltage regulation and ripple suppression; they can deliver their full-rated wattage continuously even with an intake temperature as high as 50°C.
SLI and CrossFireX support Newton R3 Series PSUs are tested and certified compatible with the latest graphics cards.
Modular Cables With the exception of a few, all cables on the Newton series power supplies can be detached from the PSU unit. This reduces the clutter, assists with a clean installation and improves the airflow in the computer case.
Compliant with the latest standards Newton R3 PSUs are compliant with the latest PSU standards: ATX12V 2.31 and EPS12V2.92.
Semi-passive Fan Operation Newton R3 Series PSUs generate very little heat, they work well without active cooling in most environmental and loading conditions, especially in a well-ventilated case. Subsequently, Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with temperature sensors that only start the fan when required to keep the operating temperature down.
Single powerful 12V rail To provide maximum support for modern components, Newton R3 Series PSUs deliver their full wattage from a single 12V rail.
Extra-long ATX12V cable Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with a 700mm long 12V ("P4") connector cable, which accommodates bottom-mounted-PSU computer cases.
Long-life Ball-bearing Fan Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with ball-bearing fans, which provide the longest expected fan life available on the market.
Premium Japanese capacitors Newton R3 Series PSUs are equipped with premium Japanese capacitors for maximum reliability and durability.

"Avec cette toute nouvelle R3, Fractal Design frôle le sans faute. En effet, avec son prix raisonnable, sa grosse certification, ses tensions excellentes, ses consommations très modérées et sa bonne finition, la newton a tout pour plaire, ou presque.

"It only took one single review for Fractal Design to walk right in here, toss me a unit, and instantly prove that this is a company that means business when it comes to power supplies. Everything done wrong on this unit is rather minor, and everything done right speaks volumes. When you can come in here with an OEM hardly anybody knows or talks about and beat Seasonic at their own stability game, that really tells me all I need to know about your company. Folks, Fractal wants your business and from what I've seen today they most definitely deserve it."
"Kanon, flot og fed strømforsyning hvor der er kræset for alle de små detaljer, som gør den meget attraktiv både for testeren, gameren, casemodderen og den helt almindelige PC bruger. Selve strømforsyningen er lavet i stærke materialer og er lakeret med en god og stærk pulvermaling, så den ikke bliver ridset. Kablerne og kabelsokkerne er ovenud lækre og er udført i virkelig gode materialer, som bare gør det en fryd at arbejde med. Dette er klart en af de bedste og mest high-end strømforsyninger jeg har arbejdet med, alt er bare i orden. Der er næsten ingen støj under normal brug, den er faktisk passiv helt op til 40º og der skal meget til før den begynder at blæse så meget at man kan høre det."
"In the Newton R3, Fractal Design is introducing a semi-passive cooling system which has fan activity only when loads are above 50%, allowing for the quietest possible operation. This is made possible through incredibly efficient design coupled with excellent passive cooling characteristics. This same efficiency allows the Newton R3 to pack a 1000W PSU into a 165mm long chassis without having need for a larger footprint. While the chassis is small, connection options on the Newton R3 are large, with fixed 20+4-pin, 4+4-pin and four 6+2 PCIe, with modular cables adding 12 SATA, five 4-pin peripheral plus an additional 8-pin CPU connector. All modular cables are flat black ribbon cables for ease of routing, with varying lengths to keep cable clutter to a minimum. Six way protection circuitry keeps your equipment out of harm’s way, while Fractal Design backs the Newton R3 1000W with a 5-Year Warranty."
"The Fractal Design NEWTON R3 1000W is an attractively designed power supply which makes a positive first impression. The packaging and bundle is indicative of a premium priced product and we particularly welcomed the resealable felt bag with individual pouches for all the modular cabling. The load regulation is excellent and the unit coped well with our stress inducing cross load tests. Efficiency is truly excellent and the semi fanless mode means that the NEWTON R3 is quiet under most circumstances. The fan only spins up noticeable over a sustained 700W load."
