Cabling Arrangement




Things are kept very simplistic with the cables and connectors. The ST65F-G has a single ATX 4+4 pin connector for the motherboard but features two cables with a pair of PCI-E connectors to support up to two video cards.


Peripherals are handled via four cables that proved eight SATA connectors, six Molex and two FDD connectors. It may not be too much, but it is more than enough to make use of all 650W available.




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




Opening things up, we see a simplistic design with a pair of heat sinks. Smaller units like these don't put off as much heat and don't need any overly complicated cooling solutions.




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




Taicon capacitors adorn the secondary side of the ST65F-G. We don't normally see non-Japanese capacitors from SilverStone.




SilverStone uses the ADDA 120mm fan model AD1212MS-A71GL to actively cool the power supply.
