The power supply supplied with the Antec NSK 3480 is an RoHS compliant and energy efficient 380 watt unit. Opening the power supply is not something I would recommend you do for any number of reasons, but the two main reasons are safety and warranty. Just so you, the reader, won't have to open one up to see what components are inside, I will open this one up for inspection.
The included power supply features dual 12volt rails rated at 16 amps each. The 3.3 volt and 5 volt rails are 25 amps each. The model number is SU-380 and features universal input voltage and active PFC. This power supply is not a modular design. This would have been a big plus when it came time to hide the excess wiring.
The power supply uses an 80mm fan to pull air through the power supply and ventilate the upper chamber of the case.
Looking at the inside of the power supply, two large heatsinks are used to cool the power circuits.
The power supply features a wide variety of connections to meet todays needs. 24 pin ATX power, 4 pin Auxillary power, and 6 pin PCIE connections are included, as well as the standard 4 pin molex,SATA, and floppy connections.
