Packaging

The front of the Hydro G Pro packaging has a stylized image of the PSU with its default labels (more on that later) and some colorful swoosh graphics circling the unit. The front also has some feature icons listing the following:

  • 80 PLUS Gold
  • 0dB zero noise fan mode
  • Fully modular cables
  • 100% Japanese made capacitors
  • IEC62368 Ready
  • 10 year warranty
  • Intel latest CPU ready

This is a stout mix, and the 10-year warranty is excellent, and it has also become a standard among top-end PSU manufacturers now.

The rear of the package shows an opened up Hydro G PRO PSU. Many of the components, which many of you may not know or be familiar with. But FSP does a reasonably decent job of explaining what they are showing and how their design can be beneficial for you. The use of thermal pads to effectively make the PSU case itself a passive heat sink for the PSU is a good idea and enables heat to be pulled from the components and using the case and even the chassis itself to wick it away.

On the side of the package, we have the output breakdown chart. We also have fan speed/noise graphs and efficiency graphs running adjacent. Then we have visual depictions of the modular cables along with a listing of how many of each connector is available.

The other large side panel we have the name, a QR code for an FSP app, which strangely includes games and a warning label. The warning is the bog-standard warning most electronics have to apply with their prop 65 warning label requirement for materials known to potentially cause health concerns such as lead, which is used in many solders and other materials.

When opening up the Hydro G PRO, the PSU itself is encapsulated within a soft polystyrene shell. The accessories and cables are in the cardboard separator we see next to the dark foam shell.
