FSP AURUM Xilenser 500-watt 80 PLUS Gold Power Supply Review

Inside the Box




Overall, the power supply is packed well. Thick foam protects the unit on all sides except for the front where the modular cables provide the padding.




The top features the I/O specification label and a few vents for added airflow.




While there is some venting on the side of the unit, there is certainly room for more. Perhaps the arrow-dynamics are more efficient with less venting.




The other side is identical with the vents pointing towards the front.




More arrow venting is on the back as well as the AC input and on/off rocker switch.




Even more venting is available on the front. The spot where there could be more venting is for the modular connectors for the two models with that feature.




There is no fan here, just a grill allowing air to flow through the unit.




Also included are the user manual, case badge, mounting screws, AC power cord and a few Velcro cable ties.
