This PSU is most likely made by Sirtec and is nothing special in terms of design. The white PCB may look nice but the used components aren't that appealing as the caps that filter the rails in the secondary side are provided by Suscon. Passive components are also used for the rectification of the +12V rail, which leads to higher energy dissipation than on mosfet solutions. The outdated group regulation scheme used in the secondary side will also affect performance with highly unbalanced loads on the rails.
We wonder why NZXT decided to combine a modern external appearance and a fully modular cabling design with such an outdated design. We would highly prefer it if they added several native cables to then offer an independent regulation scheme instead of the lousy group regulation scheme. NZXT obviously invested into appearances instead of boosting performance under certain conditions.
In the APFC, two Infineon IPW60R125CP fets and a CREE C3D08060A boost diode shape the current's waveform to match the voltage one. The hold-up cap is provided by Teapo (400 V, 390 μF, LH series). It is rated at only up to 85°C, and its capacity is rather small for the needs of this PSU, which our hold-up tests will clearly show.
Things don't look so good on the secondary side since we only found two toroidal chokes, a clear indication that a group regulated scheme is used for the generation of the rails. NZXT should know better and avoid such an outdated technique in a modern PSU because it dooms crossload performance and doesn't allow the unit to meet the requirements Intel set for Haswell compatibility. NZXT even used less efficient SBRs (Schottky Barrier Diodes) instead of mosfets to further reduce cost.
The +12V rail is rectified by four PFR40L60CT while the minor rails are handled by three Mospec S30D45C SBRs. To make things even worse, all filtering caps in the secondary are provided by Suscon, a company that isn't among our favorites when it comes to caps.
We found a pair of electrolytic caps at the front of the modular PCB. These are for extra ripple filtering, and the soldering job on the rear side is a mess.
Soldering quality on the main PCB is of acceptable quality, but we have seen much better soldering jobs in even more affordable units.
The fan is provided by Hong Sheng, and its model number is A1425H12S (9 - 13.8 V, 0.39 A, 1800 RPM, 97.2 CFM, 36.2 dBA). It has sleeve bearings and is quite strong, which then leads to high output noise.Note that all ripple and voltage results are from the unit(s) at full loadVoltage Regulation belowRipple below
End result this PSU is cheap for a reason as its not very good.
All info and pictures came from techpowerup and the testing has been done by them so all credit goes to them not me.
