NZXT HALE90 V2 1000-Watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review - Inside the Box

NZXT HALE90 V2 1000-Watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review

Long overdue, NZXT refreshes its HALE90 power supply series to V2, and brings with it some very nice changes, but at a hefty cost.

Inside the Box

Pure white is the theme here. As you can see, things are well packed and the unit should arrive undamaged even if abused a bit in shipping.

The I/O specification label is present on the top of the power supply. Even the label is white, for the most part, to reduce visibility as much as possible, in the event that the label is visible within the case.

This side of the power supply has a plastic piece that wraps around the back to add some contrast and flair to the HALE90 V2. The other side is pure white.

Around the back we find two things that we aren't used to seeing. The first is the C19 style power connector that is typically seen only in high wattage units with an output greater than 1200W. The second is the lack of ventilation. It should be plenty to keep things cool, but it is apparent that the aesthetic design does hinder the ability for addition ventilation.

The front of the unit is clearly labeled for all of the modular connectors.

Even the fan is white with the HALE90 V2 power supply with the black screws and wire fan grill providing a touch of accentuation.

Plenty of cables are available to take care of whatever your needs may require.

Also included with the unit are the mounting screws, zip-ties, user manual, AC input cord and inspection paper.
