Price at time of review150$ (in Europe, no VAT)

The PSU features all available protections, something that is very welcome of course. Currently this PSU is not available in the U.S. so we quoted the European price, which with the U.S. standards is pretty high.

Chieftec Nitro SPS-750C Power Specs
Max. Power25A25A60A3A0.5A
Total Max. Power750W

There are two +12V rails that combined output 60A. Strangely the manufacturer does not give any info about the max Amps that each +12V rail can output but we can easily assume that each can give up to 30A.

Cables & Connectors, Power Distribution

Native Cables
ATX connector (550 mm)20+4 pin
4+4 pin EPS12V (550 mm)1
4+4 pin EPS12V (550 mm)1

Modular Cables
6+2 pin PCIe (550 mm)4
SATA (550 mm+150 mm+150 mm]150 mm)8
4 pin Molex (500 mm+150 mm) / FDD (+150 mm)2 / 1
4 pin Molex (550 mm+150 mm)2

The PSU is equipped with four PCIe connectors with each one located in a separate cable. Besides the two EPS connectors we also find eight SATA, a sufficient number for the PSU's capacity. However the 4 pin Molex connectors are very few, we would like to see 2-3 more, at least. Finally the hardwired cables (ATX and EPS connectors) use thicker 16 AWG wires while the modular ones use 18 AWG.

Once we opened the PSU we found out that all +12V cables are soldered together on the main PCB, so the PSU actually has a single +12V rail thus we do not have anything to comment about its power distribution.
