Earlier in the month we took a look at the latest offering from Zalman with the ZM1250 Platinum. They have a very slow rotation of their product lines and it is sure to be around for quite some time. Today we are taking a look a unit from FSP and we've looked at many of them over the past several months. Since FSP is responsible for its own R&D as well as production, this gives them the liberty to stay on the leading edge with a constant stream of new products.
This time around, we have the new FSP Aurum 92+ PT-650M power supply on the test bench. The new Aurum 92+ series of power supplies are all 80 PLUS Platinum rated and are the first we have seen so far from FSP. All of the series is modular, with models available in 450W, 550W, and the 650W model in our hands. All of the units we have looked at from FSP have represented a strong balance between features, quality, and price so we expect just the same out of this unit.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The FSP Aurum 92+ PT-650M features something we haven't seen in quite some time from FSP and that is a quad 12V rail design. Each of the 12V rails are rated for 18A each with a combined maximum output of 576W or 48A. The 3.3V rail is capable of 20A while the 5V rail is rated for 18A. Combined these two are capable of 100W of power. The 5VSB rail is rated for the normal 3A we are used to seeing for a total of 15W. Maximum combined output for the PT-650M is 650W.
Once again, FSP comes close to filling out the features list, but doesn't quite make it. The PT-650M is full of protections including Over Temperature Protection. The power supply features both native and modular cabling, all of which are fully sleeved. The PT-650M is rated for Platinum efficiency, but it isn't rated for 50C. FSP does however rate the unit for 100% continuous output at 40C.
FSP has an MSRP of $139.99 for the PT-650M. At the time of writing this article, Newegg has the unit on sale for $104.99 after a $25 instant rebate and $10 mail-in-rebate and free shipping. This makes it one of the cheapest 80 PLUS Platinum rated power supplies currently on the market and beats the Antec EA-650 by at least $15.
You can't beat that with a stick even if you tried. FSP backs the PT-650M with an industry standard five year warranty.
