Cabling Arrangement

Once again, we find a nearly flawless selection of cables with what Cooler Master offers.

 

There are still enough PCI-E connectors to run quad video cards, four of which are natively wired. Peripheral connections are handled by nine SATA, four Molex and one FDD connector. Unfortunately the FDD connector is still part of the second Molex cable. Rounding off the selection of cables are the dual ATX 4+4 and 20+4 pin connectors that are natively wired.

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

 

 

A Look Inside

Passive cooling is provided by Cooler Master's patented "L" shaped heatsink layout that is designed to improve the air circulation inside the unit.

A pair of Japanese made Panasonic capacitors adorns the primary side of the power supply.

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

Cooler Master uses the Young Lin Tech DFS132512H 135mm fan to cool the unit should it need to kick the fan on.
