This would be the exhaust grille of the unit, and we see what looks to be HEC built innards in behind. HEC has shown that they can do a good job building power supplies, but their low end stuff doesn’t often fill me with optimism.

That said, I do at least see heatsinks on the bridge rectifiers in there. Maybe this unit isn’t as low end as it seems.

Like I said, they’re not hiding that twenty-five degree number. And I’m not hiding the fact that I don’t think anything we buy should have that low of a number on it. The original Corsair CX units had thirty degree ratings with very strict overtemp protection to keep them alive, and I didn’t much like that number either.

Forty degrees is the minimum I want to see, and since there is no chance in hell my hot box is going to stay anywhere near twenty-five degrees, I’m going to look for forty later. This way, we’ll at least be able to see if there really is proper working overtemp protection as the box claims. A fifteen degree temperature delta should have no problem tripping that protection.

Moving to the cable side, all we see here are a few small ventilation holes. Those are there to prevent hot spots inside the unit, which is encouraging. Manufacturers that don’t do this end up with junk like the Hercules 500W, a unit so bad I still haven’t seen worse in the six years since that review.

Why haven’t I done any more gutless wonder articles? Because when you get to the top of Crap Mountain, you kind of get tired of seeing all the crap you passed on the way to the top, and just want to get off the damn mountain before it buries a lot of expensive load testing equipment you can’t afford to replace.

It will surprise nobody that the fan grille of this unit is stamped steel. You get cheap cases with cheap power supplies, which makes me wonder anew why the high end Super Flower stuff from EVGA somehow looks less fancy than this thing does.

Cable time. This would be the ATX cable, which is a traditionally sleeved bundle. In fact, they’re all like that. So at least EVGA did spend some money on making the cabling look decent.

That said, you only get one PCI-e chain with this unit, two connectors total, which is not enough for a decent 750W unit. I’ll score on that.

One CPU cable comes with the unit, too. This part of things I’m okay with.

SATA connectors? Have nine of them, won’t you? Seems odd to me… only two PCI-e connectors but nine SATA?

Oh, now we’re really pushing my buttons by throwing in an obsolete 3.5″ Berg connector on the Molex chain. We’ve seen more and more companies leaving these out entirely lately, and I love units that don’t waste resources on yesterday’s obsolete connectors.

Welp, cable table’s done and we’ve seen the unit. Let’s get some science done.
