04 NZXT Hale82 750W PSU Review

NZXT went with a highly contrasting color theme and made the Hale82 a black unit with a bright white fan installed. A very dark sticker with the company logo covers the fan’s motor, the appearance of which should vastly improve if the letters were to be white. The 750W version of the Hale82 is not larger than typical ATX unit, allowing it to fit inside any ATX-Compliant chassis.

The sides of the NZXT Hale82 750W unit are almost entirely plain, with the exception of a well-placed engraved company logo at the lowermost right corner of the chassis.

NZXT moved the large sticker with the unit’s specifications at the top side of the chassis, meaning that it will be visible only if the power supply is installed at the bottom of a case.

The front of the chassis is very clean as well, especially for a modular unit. All six of the modular connectors are placed in-line towards the bottom of the unit, leaving most of the panel bare. Strangely, the tags of the modular cable connectors are printed upside-down.

The rear is entirely perforated to allow for the air pushed by the cooling fan to escape towards the outside of the case. NZXT once again engraved their logo at the small area available beneath the A/C power plug and placed a typical on/off next switch next to it.
