FSP HydroPTM 750W

Taking a good look at the Hydro PTM 750W, we can see that everything fits nicely and gives it an overall good look.

When purchasing a high-quality unit, the consumer is definitely going to want to see that reflected in the looks of the product. Even though it’s going to get tucked away inside a computer case.

Looking at the rear of the unit, I do like the look of the vents when compared to the standard. With the rounded slot design, hopefully, it doesn’t create any extra acoustics during operation.

The modular interface section looks nice and clean. I’m not one for the 5×1 peripheral connector. I know they save space and all, but they just don’t seem to fit as tight as a standard 2×3 connector does.

On the side of the casing, The Hydro PTM 750W comes with blue stickers installed, and there’s a pamphlet that has a set of green and a set of red stickers if you would like to match it to your PC Cases color scheme.

Looking at the fan grille, I’m to sure about the design as well as the bling goes but that’s just me. As long as the design doesn’t increase the acoustic noise produced during operation, all should be fine.

Here we have those ribbon cables they keep talking about. Looking at the main ATX cable, I’ve got to side with Wolf. Multiple ribbons in one cable to me just doesn’t look good, and they never lay down evenly, ones always got to bulge out a little more. The 4+4 pin CPU cable looks just fine and should be plenty long enough for even the tallest cases.

Using a single ribbon just allows for better cable routing. Above left, we have the PCI-e cable equipped with a pair of 6+2 connectors. On the right, we have one of the SATA cables.

Here we have the SATA/5.25″ cable on the left and the SATA/5.25″/3.5″ cable on the right. I’ve gotten to the point these days, that I prefer that the 3.5″ connector be put on a short adapter cable. Just makes things so much simpler.
