Introduction

XG, a division of MGE, has launched an external high-end 600 W fanless power supply, called Magnum 600 External. Yes, you read it right: external. The idea is to provide “true” 600 W power and, at the same time, to help lowering the temperature inside the PC, since high-end power supplies increase the PC internal temperature. Let’s take a look at this new concept.

The power supply can be seen in Figure 2. Its case is made of aluminum and it doesn’t use any fan at all, thus making no noise. Internally it uses a copper radiator with heat-pipes in order to dissipate the heat that is produced.

As you can see on Figures 2 and 3, it has a LCD panel that shows voltages, the power that is being consumed at the moment and the power supply temperature.
