Chieftronic SteelPower 750 W Review

Teardown & Components »


The PSU comes in a pretty large box offering good protection.

Once opened, you will find the user's manual, a bag containing all the cables, and the PSU protected by a pair of foam spacers.

The fan's grille looks restrictive. It should have wider openings for more airflow.

The power specifications label has been put on the bottom of the PSU.

The modular panel has nine sockets.

The PSU has a compact footprint.

Some more photos of the PSU from various angles.

The ATX cable is long enough, but the first EPS connector should be 50 mm further down the cable. Having both EPS connectors on the same cable also isn't a sound idea, especially with 18AWG gauges; these connectors have the ability to draw many amperes, which could in turn damage the connector on the PSU, or the gauges. The number of PCIe connectors is satisfactory. There are not as many peripheral connectors as with other PSUs of similar capacity, and I would like a 4-pin Molex one take the place of the FDD connector.
