You may be fooled by the single 80mm fan used on this power supply
into thinking that this is an average power supply. However, when you take a
look at the specs of this unit, you will be very surprised at its rated capabilities…

The total output of the power supply is rated at 650 watts, but
has a peak output rating of 710 watts.It has a total of 4 individual 12v rail
supplies, with 18, 16, 13 and 8 Amps on each respective rails. This gives a
total of 42 Amps on the 12v rails, with a peak of 45 Amps. That’s a very very
impressive figure. As the reliability and stability of systems nowdays depend
heavily on the power unit’s 12v supply, this generous allocation will definitely
give a lot of headroom for overclocking and system stability.
