Mushkin's Joule 700W offers an almost identical selection of cables and connectors to the 800W version. Aside from the differences between native and modular cabling, the only other difference is that the Joule 700W has two 8-pin PCI-E connectors and two 6-pin PCI-E connectors where as all the PCI-E connectors on the 800W model are of the 8-pin variety. You still get four PCI-E connectors, eight SATA connectors, four Molex connectors, dual ATX 4+4/EPS12V connectors and a single FDD connector.
Mushkin's Joule 700W power supply features dual 12V rails. While the manual doesn't specify how the rails are split up, it is rather easy to trace things back to the PCB. 12V1 powers the Main connector and half of the modular connections. 12V2 handles the rest of the load which is comprised of the fixed ATX 4+4 connector and the other half of the modular connections.
A Look Inside
Popping open the Mushkin Joule 700W PSU reveals that everything is different when compared to the 800W version. Not only are about half the components present, but even the PCB is about an inch and a half shorter.
Over on the primary side we find a capacitor brand that most of our readers probably haven't seen before. Asia'X capacitors are manufactured by parent company Fuhjyyu Electronic Industrial Co., Ltd. Fuhjyyu is known to work very closely with Teapo and has their manufacturing done in China.
All of the capacitors on the secondary side are of the Asia'X brand as well.
Cooling the Joule 700W power supply is another BTek fan, albeit a slightly different model than what the Joule 800W utilizes. This one is model A1225M12S.
