Cracking the case open is simple, just remove a few screws – please be aware if you do this at home you invalidate your warranty, so we don’t recommend you copy these steps.
The fan is a Brushless unit from Adda – taking 0.37A.
At the far left side we can see a daughtercard – this is home to the AC transient filter. One X capacitor, four Y capacitors and a single coil. Soldering seems to be of a reasonably high standard throughout.
All capacitors in the unit are Nippon-Chemicon.
This is a Seasonic built product and we noticed the VRM module is very similar to the Seasonic M12D 750W PSU.
The sleeving is well implemented, going into the unit which helps stop any damage to the cabling against the grommet.
The unit incorporates two GBU806’s which act as bridge rectifiers. These are beside several large choke coils with a single high quailty Nippon Chemi-Con capacitor (560uF, 400V and 85°C) positioned behind the primary heatsink.
A clear plastic ‘wall’ helps to stop the components touching the outer chassis.
The unit uses DC to DC converters to deliver +3.3V and +5v from the primary 12V area.
