[Heading]Cabling Arrangement

The cable summary is a bit short since we are dealing with a lower wattage, natively wired power supply, but should be more than sufficient nonetheless.

 

There are a pair of PCI-E cables that will allow you to power a few GPU's should you desire. Peripheral connections are proved by eight SATA, five Molex and one FDD connectors over four cables. It would be hard to need more connectors than that without first maxing out the power supply.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening things up, we find the rather short and very open PCB. The power supply is so short that they couldn't fit a 140mm fan inside for cooling and had to use a 120mm fan instead.

A single Nippon Chemi-Con capacitor sits on the primary side of the power supply.

Chinese made CapXon capacitors can be found on the secondary side of the PSU.

NZXT chose the Tate Loon D12BH-12 120mm fan to provide the cooling for NZXT HALE82 N 650W power supply.
