Fractal Design NEWTON R3 1000W PSU Review

Rating: 8.0.

Fractal Design have been hitting the headlines over the last 12 months for their array of class leading, low noise chassis designs. There is no doubt that products such as their Node 605, 304, Core 3000 and Define XL are market leaders while being offered at competitive prices. Today however we are looking at their latest high end power supply, the NEWTON R3 1000W, a modular unit with Platinum efficiency.

The NEWTON R3 1000W is right at the top of their range. There are two colours to choose from, a black and white model to suit a wide variety of windowed chassis designs. The power supply features a single +12V rail, is semi modular by design and features high grade Japanese capacitors. On paper, the specification list is certainly eye popping, but can it deliver the goods in our test labs?

The key features

  • 80PLUS® Platinum
  • Single, powerful 12V rail
  • SLI (800W and up) and CrossFireX Certified
  • Long-life ball-bearing fan
  • Modular cables
  • Japanese capacitors
  • Semi-passive fan
