Cabling Arrangement

FSP has done a pretty good job with connector selection, but a not so good job of connector availability. The SATA + Molex cables are laid out in the order of SATA + SATA + Molex + Molex. The single all SATA cable is the only one that will allow you to reach to a SATA device that is more than 27 inches from the PSU. The shared modular connection for the last PCI-E cable/ EPS12V cable means that this power supply is also out of the running for any quad-GPU systems that are also in need of dual EPS12V connectors.

On a positive note, the inclusion of two cables dedicate to fans are nice for those who are out of connectors on their motherboard, but still desire thermally controlled fans.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail.

A Look Inside

Taking a peek inside, we find that FSP uses very little passive cooling and relies on the fan for the majority of the temperature management.

A pair of Taiwanese made Jen Pan Electronics TK series capacitors sit on the primary side of the power supply.
