Cabling Arrangement

FSP provides a great list of cables and connectors for a mainstream power supply. There are four PCI-E connectors, nine SATA connectors, three Molex connectors and a single FDD connector. The short SATA cable is very nicely spaced for those that have numerous drives stacked on top of each other as there isn't any extra cable waste between the connectors to deal with. On the other hand, the cable with the SATA + Molex + FDD connectors all in one is a little odd, but still usable. What is most annoying about all this is that none of the peripheral cables are sleeved.

Rail distribution is kept simplistic with a single 12V rail.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening things up, we find that things are very minimalistic here, including the passive cooling. At least the fan will be able to push fresh air just about everywhere to help cool things off.

A single Teapo capacitor resides on the primary side of the Raider 750W power supply.

More Teapo capacitors are found on the secondary side. We hope for the best out of these as we have often seen some very mixed results when the entire power supply relies on Taiwanese capacitors.

FSP turns to Yate Loon to keep the power supply cool. The model this time around is the 120mm D12SH-12 fan.
