VisionTek 700-watt Modular Series Power Supply Review

Cabling Arrangement




VisionTek does a great job making sure that you can use all the juice that this unit provides. Dual ATX 4+4/EPS12V connectors make sure the power supply is capable of supporting dual processors and the dual PCI-E cables make sure that you can power a duo of power hungry GPU's.


Peripherals are taken care of as well with a total of eight SATA connectors, four Molex connectors and one FDD connector. There are also two unused modular connectors on the unit. You could purchase or make additional cables for the VisionTek 700W Modular power supply if you needed more than what is provided out of the box.




VisionTek's 700W Modular 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. Unfortunately, it's impossible to know which connector is which unless you break open the unit.



A Look Inside




VisionTek could have gone with a much smaller enclosure if they wanted to, but would have probably had to change to a smaller fan to cool the unit if they did so.




A single, Chinese-made Asia X capacitor adorns the primary side of the VisionTek 700W Modular power supply.




The same capacitors can be found all around on the secondary side of the PSU.




Cooling for the unit is provided by the BTek A1225M12S 120mm fan.
