Smart Modular!
With having an universal connection from the PSU, it makes it easier to connect your perihperals the way you want.

The power and efficiency - 80 PLUS!
When you buy a Fractal Design power supply, you can rest assured that you get what you pay for. 100% real wattage, we guarantee that it can run with continous load on the specified wattage. One other important factor with this PSU is that it has a very good efficiency, well over 80% and 80 PLUS certified by the 80 PLUS organisation.

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 135mm 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.

The Quality
5 yearEvery 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. As an example, we use long durable japanese capacitors in the PSU.

"Fractal have created a beautiful yet powerful and remarkably stable power supply unit (given the right conditions). The design is up there with the best from the likes of Corsair and Silverstone with top quality components used throughout and a stunningly crafted finish."

"Fractal Design is een nieuw merk dat in Nederland sinds kort beschikbaar is via importeur Space Promotions. Wij bekeken twee voedingen uit de Newton R2 reeks, een 800W en 1000W. Ook dit zijn moderne voedingen waarbij het volledige beschikbare 12V vermogen uit één rail komt, net als bij Corsair. Voor de 800W is er 60A, voor de 1000W is er 75A. De beloofde Wattages worden keurig waargemaakt en een gemiddelde efficiëntie van 85,5% en 85,3% is gemiddeld te noemen in deze test. Het geluid is lekker laag."

"We have reached a place in time where even new companies produce very good products almost from the beginning and although i can't really predict if this will turn out to be a good thing still for the time being competition always benefits the consumer and that is certainly good. Fractal Design has been around for a short period of time and have already managed to make a name for themselves inside the EU not only due to their high quality solutions but also because of their design. As far as the Newton R2 800W goes it is a great power supply capable of powering a beast of a system without a glitch."

"Das Fractal-Design Newton R2 - 800 Watt überzeugt durch sehr gute Verarbeitung und angenehme Laufruhe. Stabilität wird ebenfalls sehr groß geschrieben. Das Hauptaugenmerk liegt hier ganz klar bei SLI, Quad SLI und Triple Crossfire. Anschlüsse dafür hätte man genug, Leistung und Stabilität auch. Von uns gibt es ein dickes PLUS!"
