A Look Inside The Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 550 W
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. Since the 550 W model is manufactured by a different company than the one responsible for the lower-wattage eXtreme Power Plus models, its internal design is obviously very different from the lower-wattage members from this family.
