IntroductionPrecise: a word that brings most of us to the edge of our respective thrones, whether to oogle at that brand new BMW or admire a special piece of computer hardware. NZXT is bringing that sought-after "show and shine quality" you normally expect to see on new BMWs to your home with their latest 650 Watt Precise Power source. NZXT is a newcomer to the computer hardware game, established in 2004 by a group of gamers who wanted to design products aimed at the gaming community. With the release of their new line of power sources they are taking a wider stance in the market, and securing a strong foothold. The real test will not be mere appearance, but the sheer brute animal performance of this beast.
Closer LookWhen I received this power source, I was a little shocked as to the state the package was in. There were dents, and dings in the box, I was just praying that the power source was not damaged!
Having a look at the power source itself I initially noticed that it had almost double the amount of connectors that most Power sources ship with.
Comes with the standard ATX 2.0 connector (24 pin) Molex, Sata connectors, floppy connectors, etc. Although there was also one set of connectors that I was not used to seeing hardwired into a power source these being dedicated fan connectors in the 3 pin variety.
A nice touch, as it will help cut down on the bulk from adaptors, and the such. All of the half billion cables come either pre-sleeved or braided, which is nice as it will aid in hiding those pesky lines sticking out of the power source. Instead of the standard 2 fans, NZXT decided to use a single 120mm fan to cool this monster, if this is going to be an issue we will soon see.
