Smart Modular! In order to use these 100% real wattages the best way, Fractal Design has created a unique control system - the Smart Modular cablings. With this you have the possibility to configure the loads on the 12V-rails which ever way you want. Please read instruction and recommendations further down this page to connect the cables.
The power When you buy a Fractal Design power supply, you can be reassured that you get what you pay for. 100% real wattage, we guarantee that it can run with continous load on the specified wattage. We have even tested running the power supplies at much higher wattages continously than the specified, without any problems. One other important factor with this PSU is that it has a very good efficiency, well over 80%.
The silence Apart from being powerful, this power supply won't break your ears. On the contrary, it will be hard to know if it's actually running or not! With a hand picked, high quality 120mm fan mounted with rubber fittings, the fan will only spin as much as needed under the different loads. The high efficiency of well over 80% is crucial, since it minimizes the heat the power supply emits, enabling the fan to spin at lower speeds and be more silent.
Quality Every manufacturer claims to have this, but we have real life numbers to show: less than 1% in RMA rate is an impressively low number. We value durability when creating our power supplies, we never choose to save costs when choosing the components inside the power supply.
How to connect the Smart Modular As mentioned above, this PSU is fitted with smart modular cablings, which enables you to configure the load of the PSU in many ways. The PSU has four +12V-rails. The ATX 20/24pin and CPU 4/8pin connectors are not modular and these are connected to +12V1 respectively +12V2. The rails +12V3 and +12V4 are not placed with any load upon delivery. The ATX 20/24pin draws quite little current, so on +12V1 it's possible to connect further devices such as DC fans and harddrives/optical drives. Below are our recommendations for connections. These may of course vary depending on the systems used.
