Hydro G PRO 1000W Power Supply


The fan side of the Hydro G pro shows a textured finish on the PSU case. There is also a stylized grille covering the FDB fan. The grille is recessed so that it should ensure less likelihood of hang-ups on some chassis, which require rear insertion of the PSU, which may have a very tight opening.

Here we get a look at the default and much more subdued label styling. This is where those accessory labels we looked at previously would be applied. The textured finish of the PSU seems to do well on the fingerprint test. The textured finish hides the oils well and could even help with scuffing as well, although we did not test this.

Here we get a look at the spec label for the Hydro G PRO and the output capabilities for what the PSU is rated for.

Here we see the opposing side with the same label applied, which can be replaced the same as the other side. One thing we see here that we do not like is the 'warranty void' sticker, which is illegal here in the United States thanks to the right to repair act. I am sure that the labels are kept in place for regions in which they can enforce this policy. However, it is worth noting that the Hydro G PRO carries the 10-year warranty, and therefore the likelihood of you needing to repair your PSU is quite unlikely.

Here we have the input side of the PSU or the part which generally will face out of your PC case and accept the AC input cable. Here we find the standard fare connection along with a power toggle and an ECO mode switch. The ECO mode switch toggles the 0 RPM fan function to allow fan-less operation until load or temps require the fan turn on. The FSP tagline' power never ends' is found here printed on the PSU as well.

The modular board on the Hydro G Pro has marked sections for the cable connections you will need. The motherboard 24-pin is split into two unequal parts, which will aid in ensuring that the connectors could not be inserted into the incorrect location. The EPS connector location is keyed differently from the GPU connectors. Some PSUs have all of those the same and just wired differently on the cable to match needs. But this solution works well to avoid any oopsie moments.
