aurum 92 plus 650wa

   Professionals, serious gamers and even enthusiasts always use quality components in their PCs and although their needs are not exactly identical still they all agree that quality PSU is always a good investment (at least judging from the people we all know). Although however finding a quality PSU is not really hard (the easiest way is to check its 80 plus Certification and price) some people have a hard time figuring out just how much juice they need for their PCs. I've always believed that having a PSU with ore output power and never use it is far better than to need the extra juice and not have it but at the same time when i see PCs that can never possibly surpass the 500W mark recommending a 1KW model to those people makes no sense at all. FSP released the Aurum PT line of power supply units over a year ago and long after our review of the top PT model we decided to take a look at the 650W 92+ one released quite a bit earlier.


FSP Group is the 5th largest power supply vendor in the world. Since the company was established in 1993, our outstanding management team has drawn together our R&D expertise, our sizeable production capacity, outstanding product quality to consistently excel in this competitive marketplace. FSP group is a publicly traded company listed in the Taiwan stock exchange, symbol: 30.15.TW, with revenues exceeding over 600 million USD. FSP group provides OEM/ODM power conversion products and services to the majority of well-established manufacturers and is the leading volume supplier of desktop PC ATX power supplies. In recent years, FSP group has expanded its R&D and manufacturing capabilities to become one of the major power conversion supplier of power adapters, industrial PCs, servers, LCD/LED monitors, LCD/LED TVs, heavy duty industrial products (UPS), portable battery chargers, Uninterrupted Power Supply as well as providing off-the-shelf consumer products, partnering with many strategic manufacturers.


   The Aurum 92+ line may not be part of the higher end PT line of PSUs again by FSP but it shares most of the same features (lacks the full-modular design however) and so here we find the 80 Plus Platinum efficiency certification, four 18A +12V rails, MIA IC technology (active-clamp), active PFC, industrial grade Japanese capacitors, flat cabling system, 120mm fluid dynamic bearing silent fan and a full suite of electrical protections including OCP (over charge protection), OVP (over voltage protection), SCP (short circuit protection), OPP (over power protection) and UVP (under voltage protection). Finally the 650W model which we have here with us has a peak output (max combined power) of roughly 700W.
