Page 1 - Looking at the marketing and contents of the RX-735AP.
With JonnyGURU.com being mainly composed of power supply reviews, is it odd that this is only our 2nd Raidmax review? If you was to go searching around the web looking for Raidmax PSU reviews, you're going to find a lot of negative remarks. I think our first Raidmax review of the Monster Power RX-700AT is more than enough reason to not count them out. You shouldn't judge a brand by it's name. Judge their product(s) on an individual basis, because there's a lot of manufactures out there producing lower end units to fill the market. Although we do need to keep pushing manufactures for quality products.
The Raidmax Thunder V2 735W unit is 80+ Bronze rated and tells us right off, that we're not going to be in the same class as the Monster Power was. Believe it or not, there is still a market for these Bronze rated units. This specific unit has been getting mentioned around the net and yet there wasn't any proper reviews of it. Well of course we had to acquire one so we could take a look at it for ourselves.
Yup, we get it, it's 80+ Bronze rated. Here on the back of the box we can find the specifications, the connector count, and the features. To make it a little easier to read we'll list them out for you.
Modularized cable design for easy cable management and improved airflow inside the case.
80 PLUS BRONZED certified for energy saving.
Environmental friendly technology reduces the loss of electricity and save your money on facility bill and High Efficiency.
Optimized silent design 135mm blue LED fan maximizes the airflow and minimizes the noise.
WOW! That was fun trying to type it the way it was written. The first bit gave me the impression that we are looking at a fully modular PSU, but unfortunately it's NOT! This is the first time I've sleeving referenced as fishnets.... I might have worded things a little differently.
Nothing to see on the sides of the box other than the model #, RX-735AP
Ouch! It's been a while since I've had a unit shipped to me that only had a little bubble wrap on it. Sure, everything is squeezed in there tight enough that it should hold it in place. It isn't going to prevent any damage should it get tossed around by the parcel carrier of your choice.
Dang it Wolf! I didn't get any candy with my unit. Nor are there any extra goodies included with this unit. You get the PSU, the modular cables, the power cord (oops that wont work here) and a bag of screws... No Velcro straps, no zip ties, no User Manual...
