Silverstone DA750: inside the box
Here is what we found inside the black DA750 box:
Silverstone DA750: details
- Silverstone DA750 PSU
- power cable
- 8pin PCIe lengthening cable
- tie wraps
- 4 screws (to tighten the PSU inside your pc housing)
On first sight we see that the DA750 comes with a black painted housing, giving this product elegant looks and a strong feeling there is decent quality inside, something we're used too from Silverstone technologies. Modular PSU's might not charm everybody out there though it leaves us with the possibility to further increase airflow inside your pc housing while it may also appear a bit more clean because we can now use only the needed amount of connectors. For cooling purposes, a 120 fan us being used, probable the smartest choice if one wants to combine great cooling capabilities with lower noise production.
Most area on the backside of our PSU exists out of a grill which increases general airflow through the PSU. We also found a classic AC connector with on/off switch, but besides that nothing fancy has been added.
On the other side of our PSU we can find the modular plugs. During our testing period they never got me frustrated, great quality thus but a bit too close located to each other. On our picture the PSU is labeled so that you can clearly identify the location of each connector, this sticker isn't found on retail PSU.
Silverstone's Decathlon DA750 PSU can deliver up to 750W DC power; the most amazing thing is that Silverstone chooses for a single rail 12V line. That's right, only one transformer good for up to 60A!
An overview of how the connectors look like:
Inside, the housing has been stacked full with all kind of components, some are really huge which is quite normal if you look at the specs. Smaller components are located at two sides of the PSU, because those were SMD's they have been placed vertical upwards compared to the horizontal main PCB. Silverstone has also added quite some capacitors in order to get some decent AC ripple filtering, one of the most important things for the overclockers among us. Every heatsink is well finished; in fact the whole inside view pleased me, Silverstone again made a very decent construction.
