ION SFX 650G Power Supply

The ION SFX 650G arrives wrapped in a fabric bag to help further avoid abrasions to the painted surface during shipping.

Here we see the fan inlet or bottom of the ION SFX 650G. The stylized fan grille for the PSU is just as it shows on the packaging and shrouds the massive 120mm fan ion the tiny SFX chassis.

The side of the ION SFX 650G has a similar styling to the ION + 850 we tested previously. This side has extra ventilation to help the large fan push heat out of the case. Even if it means around the sides of it cannot effectively remove the warm air strictly out the rear. This is an excellent idea as it gives the ability to get heat out of the PSU any way possible so that under heavy loading environments, the PSU should stay cooler.

Here we have the spec label on the largest blank side of the PSU. This has a multilingual breakdown of the output amperages per rail. The PSU once again also has all of the certifications applicable to the ION SFX 650G PSU.

The other small side is similar to the opposing side, but sans the ventilation cutouts. This is likely to keep a clean, unbroken view for the side that, in many cases, will be showing if exposed in a rear entry PSU modeled chassis.

Here we have the input side for the AC cable. We have a main power toggle to shutoff primary input for the PSU. We also have the stylized venting grill here that matches the small portion on the side. The fan is so massive it blows right onto components and has a straight beeline out this grill.

The output side/modular board we have all of the output connectors for the included modular cables. Each is clearly labeled and also keyed to help you avoid plugging an incorrect cable into a slot. This would, in most cases, cause irreparable damage to your components. Please double check your PSU labeling for modular cables and never mix wires from other PSU's as one wrong pin can mean disaster.
