Price Value Quality
This power supply excels in different aspects:
1- Fully Modular: You have unlimited options of connectivity. All cables are modular, install what you need and keep the rest of cables out. This way you reduce the amount of bulky cables the spoil both the airflow and the looks of your rig.
2- Titanium Grade: When choosing a power rating, wattage is not the only thing to look at. There are different grades: Bronze, Gold, Platinum and Titanium.
This power supply is in the highest grade, this means you get 94% when your load is between 20% to 50% .. Even at full 100% load, you get 90% efficiency. I didn't see anything from competition rated Titanium at this rate.. Maximum I saw was Platinum.
3- Fan-less mode: The fan of this power supply starts spinning only after 30% load. This means up to 500w of usage will be fan-less. Practically, this is all your load when you run at a single graphics card (so any usage other than gaming with multi-GPU.
The only drawback of the unit is the big size. You need to make sure it will fit in your case before buying it. but if you are going 3-way or 4-way graphics, then you probably will choose a big case.
This power supply is not your choice if you want only single or dual graphics cards.
