The FSP Hydro X Power Supply Series 80PLUS Gold Certified
FSP Hydro X Power Supply Series – 80 PLUS Gold Certified
Low Standby Power Usage, Dynamic Cooling, and DC-DC Design for High Efficiency and Reliability
10th May, 2016 – Taipei, Taiwan – FSP, the performance power specialist, announces the release of FSP Hydro X Series 80PLUS Gold certified power supplies. These ATX PSUs use premium components and Japanese-made electrolytic capacitors made to exacting standards in order to provide users excellent cooling performance at high efficiency with minimum noise.
Efficient, Reliable DC-DC Module Design
Both +3.3V and +5V modules use a custom DC-DC design with solid capacitors for efficiency, voltage stability, and high system compatibility. This design is also optimized for the latest power-saving 6th Generation Intel Skylake processors.
Tight Voltage Regulation and Smart Cooling
A bespoke variable resistor (VR) design better controls the balance point of the +12V rail for tight regulation. The FSP Hydro X series PSUs ensure the output voltage is regulated within 1% under any load change. A thermometer monitors the internal temperature and automatically adjusts the speed of the 120mm double ball bearing fan to provide optimal cooling.
Eco-Minion Controller Reduces Standby Power Consumption
Computers spend most of their time sleeping. When a PC is in sleep or idle modes, most of its functions are powered by the +5Vsb rail. The FSP Hydro X series includes an Eco-Minion Controller that enhances the overall performance of this rail. Generally, PSUs achieve 75% efficiency at a low-power standby load of about 1A – the Hydro X series can achieve around 82.5% efficiency for low standby power consumption.
Custom Soft Start Feature
The sudden rush of electrical current can hurt PSUs immediately after powering on. The FSP Hydro X uses a custom power guard to curb the power surge when switching on, keeping the power supply safe and reliable.
