Cabling Arrangement

Connector availability for the AZZA Platinum 1000W is great, but the cable selection is a bit ho-hum. There are six PCI-E connectors present to power a trio of video cards along with 12 SATA, six Molex and a single FDD connector. The native cables are what make this less than ideal. It would be much nicer to see the two native PCI-E cables as a single cable with dual connectors. It would also be nice to see the EPS12V connector made modular in order to reduce cable clutter as 95% of users will never need more than one of these.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.

 

 

A Look Inside

As expected, there are two heatsinks that run the length of the unit to provide passive cooling for the Platinum 1000W.

Two Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors sit on the primary side of the power supply.

The secondary side of the power supply features many more Nippon Chemi-Con caps.

AZZA uses the Hong Hua 140mm fan to provide the active cooling for the Platinum 1000W power supply.
