The Aerocool Project 7 P7 650W is the finest Andyson power supply we have tested to date. Clearly their partnership with the team at Techpowerup has paid off as technically this is a very capable design indeed. I have tested a lot of Andyson power supplies over the years, and quite honestly, most of them have fallen way short of the mark and certainly below a level I would feel comfortable recommending to our readers.
Technically we didn’t find any weaknesses that were notable to report. This is the first Andyson power supply I can remember to have Over Temperature Protection which has always seemed essential to us. Clearly Techpowerup forced their hand with Aerocool, so I was pleasantly surprised to see it included.
It is clear to me that the development of this power supply has taken quite some time as there are no glaring weaknesses. Ripple suppression is first class, load regulation is within 1% on all rails and its one of the quietest power supplies I have tested this year. I can’t really report further on the RGB support as I never received the optional RGB controller hub from Aerocool.
A quality modular platinum power supply will never be a ‘bargain buy’, but BOX in the UK are selling it for £134.99 inc vat HERE. This makes it around £20 less than competitors such as the Seasonic Platinum 650W Platinum supply, on sale at Overclockers UK for £154.99 inc vat HERE.

KitGuru says: An excellent power supply from OEM Andyson. The first we have tested. Ever. Hats off to Techpowerup for helping Aerocool change their direction and raising the quality of this power supply.
