Default FSP Epsilon 80Plus 600W

As expected, the build quality of this unit is excellent. There is literally nothing to complain about. The Epsilon 80Plus 600W is a good power supply, but there's very little in the way of marketing. Unfortunately, that's typical of larger companies like FSP Group. Smaller companies like Corsair, OCZ, and be quiet! provide similar quality but have huge marketing departments. They tend to know much more about the specific markets than the actual manufacturers.

We see this lack of market knowledge when we look at the connectors of this unit. It comes with 24-pin, 4-pin ATX12V, and 4/8-pin EPS12V connectors, which is fine for the rated output. Six Molex and six SATA connectors are the minimum we would expect, and for a 600W power supply it might even be enough. The two PEG connectors are the bigger concern, as that would make this power supply under-equipped for anyone looking to run two 9800 GTX cards in SLI, or two HD 4870 cards in CrossFire. Then again, SLI/CrossFire certification for the higher-end GPUs requires a higher rating anyway. As it stands, this power supply will be fine for single graphics cards configurations, including cards like the 3870X2 and 9800GX2, or dual-cards like the 8800 GT and HD 4850 that only require a single PEG connector.
