Cabling Arrangement

Cabling is very simple for the HCG-750M. Aside from the attached 24-pin and EPS12V connectors, there are four PCI-E connectors over two cables. The peripheral connectors are handled via four cables that have mixed connectors offering nine SATA, six Molex and a single FDD connector.

The HCG-750M features two 12V rails. The first rail takes care of one of the PCI-E connectors and all of the peripheral connectors. The other rail addresses the 24-pin, ESP12V and other PCI-E connectors.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening the unit up reveals a cleanly designed Seasonic unit. Passive cooling is present without being overabundant.

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