This power supply also has two cables connected directly into it, the main 20/24-pin power supply connector and another PCI Express auxiliary connector. Thus you can connect up to three video cards directly to this power supply without the need of any sort of adapter.
As mentioned this power supply uses a 24-pin motherboard power cable that can be easily transformed into a 20-pin one, see Figure 5. Its EPS12V connector can be also transformed into an ATX12V connector, see Figure 6.
Talking about its main power cables, we found a small aesthetic flaw. They use a plastic sleeving to keep all their wires together thus helping the PC internal airflow. This plastic sleeving, however, doesn’t go all through the way inside the power supply housing, so you can see a bunch of unprotected wires coming out of the power supply housing, see Figure 7.
On the other hand this power supply comes with a rubber protection for its rear, being the first time we’ve seen such feature.
The gauge of all main wires is 18 AWG.
We decided to fully disassemble this power supply to take a look inside.
