Sunbeamtech is a company that got its start making cold cathode fluorescent light kits. Somehow, they got themselves into power supplies. Today, I’m taking a look at one of their most popular units: The NUUO 550W.

Above and below are pictures of the Sunbeamtech box.
Below is the inside of the NUUO 550W power supply’s box. On the left side of the box, is where the modular cables and “control panel” are kept. On the right, we can see the power supply wrapped in bubble wrap and sandwiched between two pieces of foam.
Documentation sits on top of the contents of the box. Documentation includes a manual, a piece of paper about the power supply’s thermal sensors for the “control panel” and a warning that essentially tells the user that if you plug a modular connector in backward, you’re going to get an early 4th of July fireworks show (or Chinese new year depending on your location.)
The Sunbeamtech has a unique look to it. It’s a very shiny black steel, but somehow they “brushed” the finish giving it something of an aluminum look. There’s a 120MM fan on the bottom and an 80MM fan on the rear.
Above is a picture of the NUUO’s modular interface. The four connectors on the left are all peripheral connectors for the 4-pin Molex connectors. In the photo, they have their dust caps installed. On the top row, the two connectors to the right of the two Molex connectors is the ATX/EPS+12V connector and the single PCI-e connector. Below these two are two SATA connectors, also covered by their dust caps. To the right of these eight connectors are some smaller connectors we’ll touch on a bit later.
