FSP Epsilon 900: details

- power cable
- tie wraps
- 4 thumbscrews (to tighten the PSU inside your pc housing)
- FPS case badge
Just like with Silverstone's PSU we found a grill filling up the entire back side of the back, airflow is not restricted by the housing in any way. The usual power connector and on/off switch can also be found here, but do note the large 120mm fan on top of our picture, FSP's solution to keep their product running at reasonable temperature.
All other sides of the housing are closed except for a few holes so that hot air can be extracted easier in order to provide extra cooling on critical components.
900W continuous power divided over 7 different volt rails, unbelievable what people can stack in such a small housing. The downside of all those differently transformed volt lines is that we do not really have any 12V line which can provide over 20A or 240W, could that become a problem once one of our components is being madly overclocked?
An overview of how the connectors look like:
The PSU itself looked rather empty inside. Multiple small volt rails makes it easier to cool the switching transistors, the smaller heatsink can safe up quite some space. Though, the amount of components seem to be held as low as possible too, and I must say that I didn't feel quite confident that this PSU could really feed up to 900 Watts because there just doesn't seem to be put much effort in the finishing of this product. Also note how on the left side down to the bottom you can see some inscriptions which point out the amount of power this product is rated for. This indicates that the PCB design is kept the same for many different products, even low-power ones, and that we might have to deal with a product which is rather designed for fast/cheap production instead of great quality.
Specifications? We compare both PSU's on next page, which one will come out best? Read on ->
