The +5VSB Power Supply

The +5VSB (a.k.a. standby) power supply is independent of the main power supply, since it is on continuously.

The +5VSB power supply uses an ICE2QR4765 integrated circuit, which incorporates the PWM controller and the switching transistor into a single chip.

The rectification of the +5VSB output is performed by an SBR30A40CT Schottky rectifier, which supports up to 30 A (15 A per internal diode at 110° C, 0.50 V maximum voltage drop).

The +5VSB power supply of the XFX PRO 850 W Black Edition Full Modular is identical to the one used on the 750 W version of this same power supply.
