The PSU features almost a full set of protections, something that of course is very good. Even Over Current Protection (OCP) is present although in a single +12V rail PSU this protection is not essential.

The single +12V rail can provide almost all power of the PSU, so there will be no power problems even with two hi-end VGAs.

Cables & Connectors

Native Cables
ATX connector (600 mm)20+4 pin
4+4 pin EPS12V (610 mm)1
6+2 pin PCIe (610 mm)4
4 pin Molex (380 mm+150 mm+150 mm+150 mm) / FDD (+150 mm)8 / 2
SATA (390 mm+150 mm+150 mm+150 mm)8
All cables are pretty long and the distance between the connectors is ideal. The number of available connectors is satisfactory, for the capacity of the PSU, the only objection being the single EPS connector. Finally, almost all wires are 18 AWG which is recommended by ATX. The 24 pin ATX cable has thicker 16 AWG wires.
