Cougar LX Series 600 W Power Supply

The Cougar LX Series 600 Watt power supply isn’t a bad looking power supply. Its not going to win any awards on the catwalk, but overall its reasonable looking. The paint work is pretty good too.

When I first lifted the power supply out of the box I heard some rattling sounds inside and a little bit of the binding glue which normally holds the components in place – fell out, shown in the image above. We inspected inside the power supply later and nothing was damaged – however this has clearly come loose during shipping.

A large fan is positioned behind a large grill with the Cougar logo taking pride of place in the centre.

One side of the power supply is home to the vent system, alongside the power connector and switch.

On the other side we have the modular bay, with all the cable positions clearly labelled. It was a little disappointing to see that instead of printing the port identities on the chassis – Cougar just placed a large sticker on the metal – ours was peeling off already as you can see in the image above.

The single +12V rail is able to deliver 49 amps which translates into 588 Watts total. The minor rails show as very strong actually for a power supply of this capacity.

    Teapo isn’t chinese but taiwanese and it produces good quality caps. You’re not going to expect japanese caps in a low budget unit.
    Capxon on the primary side really sucks, it’s 400v certified at least ( most low budget units mount 200v primary caps, 20-30v less than european household power).

    Actually I don’t rate TEAPO as anything close to good – its true taiwanese are a little better than those sourced from Chinese plants, but neither of them are great. over the years I have had 2 or 3 of them explode when I was testing power supplies. 1 of them has also leaked. So I stand by my views, which has been based on 5 years of testing power supplies.

  • Ottoore

    3 dead capacitors over 6 years of testing isn’ t good enough? I don’ t say they are perfect, i just state they are a good compromise. Can you list 5 low budget units with jappo caps? ( incoming evga b3, corsair vengeance ok, then?).
    I agree with you about caps origin but we can take advantage of this difference ( i mean chinese/taiwanese) to discern pure chinese trash (capxon, jung fu,elite…) and admissible ones!
    You remind me this article, Jonny from jonnyguru seems to agree with that.

    Thanks for the review, greetings from Italy.

    I know Jon Gerow pretty well , he works for Corsair now and other people seem to be running JohnnyGuru’s website. Not sure why on earth you are linking me to Toms Hardware or why you want a debate with me over this. I have opinions, just like you, and I personally always warn people when they are buying very budget power supplies with Chinese capacitors as I have seen quite a few failures testing power supplies over the years – its always with TEAPO capacitors. I also never said they needed to be loaded with Japanese capacitors regardless of price – I just mentioned there could potentially be problems due to my own findings. I will try and hunt out some photographs I took at the time and its always TEAPO – not other Chinese or Taiwanese brands.
