Cabling Arrangement

NZXT makes sure that you have plenty of cables with the HALE82 series. Dual ATX4+4/EPS12V and six PCI-E connectors ensure that you'll be able to use all the juice it offers while the fiver peripheral cables make sure that you'll be able to power all of your drives and accessories.

 

Two very nice things to note here is that there are both short and long SATA cables as well as no floppy connectors. Not even an adapter. It's about time. Thanks for taking another step towards the future NZXT.

NZXT keeps the rail distribution sweet and simple with a single 12V rail.

 

 

A Look Inside

Opening things up, we find ample cooling inside a very busy power supply.

A pair of Japanese made Nippon Chemi-Con caps adorn the primary side of the HALE82 850W power supply.

More Nippon Chemi-Con can be found on the secondary side of the PSU.

The ADDA AD1212UB-A70GL fan cools the HALE82 power supply.
