A Look Inside The EliteXStream 1000 W
Hardware Secrets Golden 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.

This page will be an overview, and then in the following pages we will discuss in detail the quality and ratings of the components used.

What immediately got our eye was the fact that this power supply had two transformers and three electrolytic capacitors on the active PFC circuit. We will see how they are connected in just a bit.
