The Power Supply

The power supply has a nice, understated look about it. Polished black finish, embossed BFG logo on the sides and a simple white print on black label offer a nice classy finish. The size of the unit is also noteworthy; the BFG EX-1200 is a very compact power supply considering the impressive capacity. BFG managed to cram all this capability into a regular ATX sized power supply.

Here is a view of the fan side of the power supply. This is what you would see in many of the newer BTX cases. The logo is mounted to the 135 mm fan grill to remind you what brand you purchased, just in case you forgot. The overall look and feel is nicely executed.

 

The back side of the PSU is relatively standard with hexagon mesh, but the mesh reaches all the way to the edges. It looks like this unit will breathe very well.

The BFG EX-1200 is not fully modular. There are the necessary feeds that most installs will require hard wired to the unit. If you require more connections, the modular cables can be added. It will certainly help eliminate unused cables in your system. One odd item is that the two modular PCI-E cables are labeled (12V2, 12V3), but there is no corresponding label on the modular panel. That will likely not matter since each rail can handle up to 40 amps, but it would still be nice to know where you are sourcing your power.
