A Look Inside The Real Power Pro 850 W
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

We decided to disassemble this power supply to see what it looks like inside, how it is designed, and what components are used. Please read our Anatomy of Switching Power Supplies tutorial to understand how a power supply works and to compare this power supply to others.

In this page, we will have an overall look, while in the next page we will discuss in details the quality and rating of the components used.

This power supply uses a dual-transformer design, as you can see on the pictures below (traditionally power supplies use only one transformer). In theory this design enables the power supply to deliver more current to its secondary. This same design is used on some other power supplies we’ve seen like StarTech.com WattSmart 650 W, Tagan TurboJet TG1100-U95 1,100 W and Enermax Galaxy 1000 W.
