We've taken a look at many units from Xigmatek here at TweakTown; and I must say that I've never really been impressed with their offerings. They seem mostly targeted toward the lower-end of the market, and as an enthusiast myself, I tend to look toward the other end of the market. Aside from that, their performance hasn't been anything that was over the top, and neither has the price. Their power supplies have always just felt like they were another random unit in the pile, and nothing that screamed: "PICK ME, PICK ME!!!"
The new Vector P700 from Xigmatek feels a little different though, and I'm intrigued by just looking at pictures of the unit. It has a little bit of extra flair in the design, and it really pops. It will most certainly stand out in the case as something more than just a power supply.
It also has their Reverse Thrust Fan Technology, which allows the fan to run backwards to help clear some dust. Add in the high efficiency of the unit, and there is more than enough to grab my attention. None of this is worth a darn if it isn't able to keep your system up and running though, so let's check it out and see what it has to offer all the way around.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Xigmatek Vector P700 700W power supply features dual 12V rails. Each rail is rated for 38A, with a combined output of 58A, or 696W. Both the 3.3V and 5V minor rails are rated for 20A each, with a combined output of 75W. This is significantly lower than we've seen out of any power supply in the past, so don't expect to use this for powering an array of 25 SSD's in RAID0. The 3.3V rail is rated for 3A, or 15W. Maximum combined output for the Xigmatek Vector P700 is 700W.
Something that I don't think that we've seen to date is a full feature chart from Xigmatek. The Vector P700 doesn't disappoint on this front, and scores well on everything. There is a full suite of protections, including SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP, and OTP. The P700 is rated for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency. The unit features both native and modular cabling. All cables are fully sleeved with nylon mesh. The Xigmatek Vector P700 is rated for 100% continuous output at 50C.
At the time of writing, Xigmatek has an MSRP of $189.99 on the Vector P700. This places the power supply towards the upper end of the price spectrum. I searched high and low, and short of a few being sold on EBay, it seems that the Vector P700 just isn't possible to find for sale in the USA. If you can find one for purchase, Xigmatek will back it with a three-year warranty.
