Cabling Arrangement

The cable summary might not look like much, but it should be more than sufficient for a 500W unit. Aside from the obligatory 24-pin Main and ATX 4+4 connectors, there are dual PCI-E cables, five SATA connectors and four Molex connectors. It is worth noting that the modular version has an additional two PCI-E connectors.

Rail distribution is nicely thought out as it spreads the load across both rails naturally. 12V1 powers the Main, all peripherals and half of the ATX 4+4 connector. 12V2 powers the rest of the ATX 4+4 connector as well as all of the PCI-E connectors.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening the case, we find that things are very open with plenty of heatsinks to draw the heat away from components.

A pair of Panasonic caps covers the primary side of the FSP AURUM Xilenser 500W power supply.
