    Arrow NZXT E650 Review

    We've seen what NZXT's new E series looks like in both 850W and 500W flavors. Now, it's time to find out if the last unit in the line at 650W also brings the goods.

    I actually like the shell of this PSU. The pricing is insane though. It better should match RMi to make a competitive offer.

    What's crazy is that the these units have been out for a bit in the US and the 850w is only ~$10 more.

    That warning about using cables from other PSUs is a nice touch.

    Why use an insanely expensive Texas Instruments chip:
    https://www.mouser.de/Texas-Instrume...yj74s8Z1z0zls6

    Mouser list them for around 10€ for a full Reel with 250/500 or more...

    Especially when you still use a CM6500 for PFC and the 6901 for the LLC-Resonant mode stuff.

    Weird...
    And expensive...

    Actually, the i series uses MicroChip's 44-pin MCU.

    Yeah, and I'd expect that chip to cost half or less than this Texas Instruments Power Supply Micro Controller...
    And you don't have the primary stuff in your MCU...
