Gamdias Kratos P1-750W ATX Power Supply
Looking first at the fan grille side of the PSU and we can see that Gamdias took a unique approach, choosing to cutout stylized bars into the PSU chassis to work as the fan grille. The fan inside we can see is semi-opaque and will help to spread the internal RGB lighting form the hub out through the fan to create a more luminous effect. The grille cutout design follows to the sides so that RGB lighting can spill out the side to offer more of an aesthetic appeal, but the fan being black-framed hampers that a bit. However, this is a design decision that most RGB PSU's have offered back to the era of Thermaltake RGB lit PSUs, which had an internal Riing fan in them.
Flipping the PSU ninety degrees, and we see the side label, which may be visible depending upon your chassis design. The label carries gold-colored accents that may not fit with all system themes, but overall it's not excessively harsh or off-putting enough to say it would be bad for a build.
Flipping another ninety degrees, and we have the opposing side of the fan grille. Here we have the main label for the Kratos, showing the name, serial number along with an output table. There are also a host of conformity and safety/compliance icons in place here, similar to what we saw ion the packaging.
Flipping the final ninety degrees takes us to the visible opposing side in most chassis with the standard mounting of the PSU. We see the same label style along with the grille cutouts on the side to try to help with light spillover to viewing from the side. This likely can help with cooling air ingress as well.
The input side of the Kratos shows where we plug our AC input cable. Here we also have the same style ventilation grille openings to allow the PSU to breathe and expel heat accordingly. Here we also find the main toggle, which will cut off the AC input. We also have two other controls here, the RGB control button and the silent mode toggle, which we discussed earlier.
The final angle we will look at the Kratos is the output side of the supply. Here we see to the left the main cables which are fixed permanently and not modular. To the right, we have the four connections available for the PSU, and one of them is for the GPU pigtail lead, while the other three are for the peripheral cables. One odd thing to note is that there are three peripheral six pin connections, yet there are four peripheral cables included, so one of them cannot be used. Not that all four should be necessary for most users, but it is weird when you think about it.
