It's like Apple got into making PSUs

Bernard D., Newegg
11 January 2016
  • Summary: I'd always used cheap PSUs when I was younger cause it was an easy way to save money on PC builds. But doing some research I found that higher quality efficiency ratings can save you some money in total cost of ownership, so I went for better quality on this purchase.
  • Pros: - Phenomenal packaging. Very nice...maybe too nice...how much of the price is rolled up into the packaging? Fun to open up and enjoy though. - Hybrid modular design - 80Plus Platinum efficiency
  • Cons: - A little more expensive than some other PSUs, but so far it seems you get what you pay for

  • Pros: Wow, unless actually gaming the power supply fan doesn't even come on. One of the few that work with the Define S case with bottom 140mm fan.
  • Cons: Little tricky connecting the ATX connector as it is 2 pieces that don't quite 'click' together.

This is a BEAST

Trent H., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Pros: This thing comes with an awesome pouch to hold all the extra plugs, its efficient, runs incredibly cool, and its powerful and its silent. It isn't overwhelmingly large and fits nicely the way it should.
  • Cons: some of the plugs don't easily fit through the grommeted holes on the Fractal Define R5 and took some force and finesse.

Great PS

Dustin B., Newegg
4 January 2015
  • Summary: I also bought a tower from these guys and that too was very impressive, these Fractal guys are my new favorite company.
  • Pros: Top quality power supply. Reducing noise pollution in my office is very important to me and this PS is silent so far (but I haven't given it the test of time yet) and it's the highest quality PS I've used so far. It's modular and allows you to easily connect new cables to it to suit your needs, t...
  • Cons: No issues, love the product.

  • Summary: I like this PSU, but to truly make the most out of your purchase you need to custom sleeve your cables.
  • Pros: This is a beautiful power supply, and is packaged very well. The silence and raw output are a blessing.
  • Cons: The sleeved cables do not have great sleeving. The ribbon cables are better.

Excellent Power Supply

Lyam W., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: No issue with this one. Took about 15 minutes to open up my case, remove the old one, put in the new one, and hook up all the cables ALL WHILE EATING A PEANUT BUTTER AND HONEY SANDWICH IN MY OTHER HAND. NO LIE.
  • Pros: + price + performance + looks nice
  • Cons: - had to do math to reach this conclusion

They thought of everything

Lyam W., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: I never heard about Fractal's stuff until Tek Syndicate did a few videos on their stuff. Really good stuff. As far as ordering things from anything online, there are risks. What I like to do is pop out my cell phone and just record the initial opening of the thing so I never have to worry about...
  • Pros: - Cables and Accessories that came with it. The roll up pouch thing works a lot better than the messy one that came with the Corsair HX750. - Long cables for bottom mount (I had a Corsair 300R and Fractal Design Define R4 which both are "ATX Mid Towers" and the cords with the Corsair HX750 could ...
  • Cons: - Ships from USA to Canada (if you're in Canada), so it takes a bit longer and costs more for things like express shipping.

Great PSU

Coty H., Newegg
15 July 2014
  • Summary: It's a great company. Everything they make is solid. This PSU was no exception. i was pulling over 800 watts on a gold PSU and switch to this one. It dropped down to 714- 720. I would buy one again if the need was there.
  • Pros: Super efficient Lots of power Modular USA based tech support
  • Cons: Not enough peripheral molex connectors for my rig. Had to cut a SATA one and make my own for 2 extra 4 pin connectors

Held up my build for weeks

Timothy H., Newegg
1 July 2014
  • Summary: The color of this supply is PURE white - no hint of ivory or off-white so it may not match your case exactly (unless you buy Fractal Design, I'm guessing).
  • Pros: Beautiful design, and seemingly solid construction. Very compact and will fight in tight spaces.
  • Cons: My system was shutting down within 2 seconds of being powered on. The PSU was so pretty (and expensive) that I didn't suspect it initially. When I DID begin to suspect it, a multimeter test on all hot pins showed normal voltages. I checked and re-checked for any grounding conditions that might be...
