Taking a closer look at the PSU, the exterior of the power supply has a sleek-looking, all-black matte finish. There is a large 120mm cooling fan on this power supply, which likely aids in keeping it quiet but hopefully doesn’t result in higher operating temperatures and less efficiency. The rear of the power supply has a simple on/off switch. The side panel lists the various rail outputs, with the 3.3V rail rated at 36, the 5V rated at 30A, and the quad 12V rails rated at 18A each. The quad rails are nice touch not often found in a budget power supply; this aids in the unit’s stability.

Installation of the PSU was fairly straightforward. Simply place the PSU into the case and attach it using the standard four screws that are included. Finally, plug in all the components and you’re ready to go. After turning on the computer, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the power supply was indeed quiet compared to other power supplies. The PSU fan does not have any LEDs to add extra style to the build. Airflow through the power supply seemed adequate, thanks to the large 120mm fan.
Testing:
Testing was done by measuring the voltages at the connectors with a multimeter. Idle voltages were taken running Windows and full loads were taken while running SiSandra Pro. Results of similar tests on a previously reviewed Corsair 750W PSU and the Coolmax RM-750B 750W PSU are included for comparison.

3.3V testing:

The 3.3v rail performance was very stable, as with most PSUs on the market.
5V testing:

Similarly, the 5V rail was also solid. Very little voltage drop and minimal voltage fluctuations were seen.
