Cabling Arrangement

The cable and connector availability for the EVO Blue 2.0 850W power supply is almost perfect. While the cables and connectors are there to power almost everything that you can think of an 850W power supply doing, it does lack a second ATX 4+4/EPS12V connector in the event that one is needed. It would be nice to see this included as a modular cable.

Rail distribution is as simple as it gets with a single 12V rail. There is no need to worry about load balancing here.

A Look Inside

Inside we find that things are rather busy despite having a simplified PCB. Considering the Turbo Button capabilities of the unit, we are surprised that there aren't better heat sinks to aid in the passive cooling of the unit.

A single Nippon Chemi-Con capacitor sits on the primary side of the power supply.

The secondary side is littered with more Nippon caps.

Thermaltake uses their own TT-1425 140mm clear LED fan to provide the active cooling for the power supply.
