Xtreview is such a horrible site in every way.

Range of power supply Chieftec GPS-500C Series Smart, has been certified 80 PLUS Platinum. The most important feature of the new items is a 500 watt passive cooling.

The heat generated by the components of the power supply is removed through the air vents and the aluminum radiator. The power supply was very quiet.

12 V is formed on the same bus, capacity reaches 41,5 A.

The unit is equipped with a combined cable system. Rigidly fixed cables with a 20 +4 pin and 4 +4 pin for the motherboard, and cables with two additional power connectors PCI Express (6 +2 pin) for graphics cards.
:laugh:

Pretty competitive pricing, it's similar to the Seasonic P-520FL.

Not all, but some of the GPS series used to have a (surprisingly reliable) Delta inside in them. I wonder what's inside in these.
