XigmaTek NRP-PC702 Power Supply Review

Review Score:
13 Flares 13 Flares ×

Earlier this year Xigmatek released a couple of power supplies which didn’t receive much coverage, but we really liked the whole ‘eco friendly’ approach they were focusing on, heck they even shipped the unit in a box made from recycled materials.

They have four supplies in this range, The PC402, PC502, PC602 and PC702; with the first number in the product name signifying the power output. The PC702 we are looking at today is therefore a 700W model, the highest in this particular range. These models are marketed at the everyday enthusiast with a high value element to ensure they are easily affordable – The PC702 for instance is only £70 in the UK right now. We need to balance out our test units as we have, to this point, focused primarily on expensive, high end power supplies.

The Xigmatek NRP-PC702 Power Supply is 80 PLUS Bronze certified which means it has to have an efficiency rating of 85 percent or greater when under 50 percent load.

A full list of specifications is available here

    for under 70 pounds this is hard to find fault with really. many 700-800w psus are almost twice this price. bit of a bargain find.

    May I make a suggestion? Would it be possible, in future PSU reviews, to make at least some mention of the length of the cables, obviously it would be preferable for these measurements to be more specific and scientific.
    I think that cable lengths are an important consideration when buying a PSU, obviously not as important as getting a good one, but still a useful bit of information to have.
    Thanks for the otherwise, very useful power supply reviews.
