Fractal Design Ion+ Platinum 860P PSU Review

The Fractal Box artwork is effective enough, if rather uninspired.

The rear of the box highlights the 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, the 10 year warranty and the semi passive zero fan mode alongside some photographs, including one that highlights the full modular bay.

Inside the box, is literature on the power supply, a handy little storage bag, mounting screws and cable ties. The power supply is wrapped in a little bag, protected between foam slabs.

The Ion+ 860P ships with 6 PCIe connectors, the same as the smaller ION+ 760P model.

The larger 760P and 860P ship with 6 PCIe, and 10 SATA connectors. The higher powered models also incorporate an extra EPS/ATX12V connector for more CPU demanding systems such as AMD’s Threadripper. Fractal are using an extra long 600mm 24 pin ATX cable and a 700mm 4+4 pin cable.

We like this cable design, and while we can somewhat take all the buzz words with a pinch of salt, these cables are in reality very flexible and we can see them being quite easy to route during a system build. We can believe that due to the flexible nature, they would put less stain and resistance when bent in tight spaces.
