Cougar PowerX 550W PSU Review

The Power X 550W is shipped in a colourful box featuring the brand name in large letters. Top right is mention of the 80 Plus Bronze certification and a 3 year warranty.

I was a little surprised to see that Cougar hadn’t protected the power supply inside thick foam padding, instead opting for a thin layer of bubblewrap. Alongside the power supply is a user manual, a couple of cable ties and a regional specific power cable.

The cables are high grade sleeved 18AWG – not the more popular thin ribbon style which are easier to route.

Cable Connectors
MB 20+4 pin x1 (500mm)
CPU 4+4 pin x1 (600mm)
PCI E 8 pin (6 pin +2) x2 (500mm + 130mm)
SATA / Molex x2 (400mm + 130mm) / x1 (+130mm)
SATA / Molex / FDD
x3 (400mm + 130mm + 130mm)
x1 (400mm) /x2 (+130mm) /x1 (+130mm)

The unit includes a reasonable number of cables, especially when considering the output capacity. This is not an ideal power supply for a longer full tower chassis as the cables are rather short.
