NZXT HALE90 V2 1000-Watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review - Cabling Arrangement and A Look Inside

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.

Cabling Arrangement




It is nice to see the move to fully modular cabling with the HALE90 V2 series. Even so, I can't help but feel that the list of cables and connectors is a bit dated.


Most of this stems from having 14 Molex connectors and two FDD connectors in this day and age of SATA. One more cable with four SATA connectors on it over a Molex + FDD cable would make it feel a lot more appropriate as a modern day power supply.




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




Opening things up, we see that NZXT has continued the white theme here as well. On top of that, they have also managed to reduce and shrink components. If I didn't know better, I'd swear this was a much lower wattage unit by its appearance. The potentiometers that you see aren't for adjusting voltage, but more likely for adjusting the trip points for protections.




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




More Nippon Chemi-Con caps are all over the secondary side of the power supply, too.




Protechnic provides the active cooling for the NZXT HALE90 V2 1000W power supply with the MGA13512YB-O25 135mm fan.
