Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The Raider is the latest power supply series from FSP, featuring the 80 Plus Bronze certification and available in 450 W, 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W versions. Let’s see how the 650 W version fared on our tests.

The FSP Raider series uses the same platform as the Aurum Gold series, which is interesting, since the Aurum Gold series has the 80 Plus Gold certification.

The FSP Raider 650 W is 5.5” (140 mm) deep, using a 120 mm sleeve-bearing fan on its bottom (Yate Loon D12SH-12).

The reviewed power supply doesn’t have a modular cabling system. The SATA and peripheral power cables are not protected with nylon sleeves. This power supply comes with the following cables:

  • Main motherboard cable with a 24-pin connector, 20.1” (51 cm) long
  • One cable with two ATX12V connectors that together form an EPS12V connector, 23.6” (60 cm) long
  • Two cables, each with one six/eight-pin connector for video cards, 20.5” (52 cm) long, permanently attached to the power supply
  • One cable with four SATA power connectors, 21.3” (54 cm) to the first connector and 2.4” (6 cm) between connectors
  • One cable with two SATA power connectors, three standard peripheral power connectors, and one floppy disk drive power connector, 21.3” (54 cm) to the first connector, 5.9” (15 cm) between connectors

All wires are 18 AWG, which is the minimum recommended gauge. The cable configuration is adequate for a mainstream product.
