Fractal Design Tesla R2 1000W PSU Review


Inside, the 135mm fan label has been replaced with another sticker featuring the Fractal company badge. We can not get any information on this sadly. There is a triangle shaped plastic, clear baffle which is to direct the air over a specific area of the internal layout. The fan is suspended with rubber screws to help lower vibrations and subsequently the noise levels.
This power supply is a ATNG OEM design. It is quite a clean design, with several rows of long heatsinks separating the components. There are two DC-DC converters which produce the minor rails. Soldering quality is good throughout.
There is a small PCB behind the AC receptacle which comprises four Y caps, three X caps and a CM choke. The transient filtering continues to the main PCB in the shape of another CM choke and two X caps, two Y caps and an MOV.
The primary capacitors are TEAPO rated 400v 270uF @ 85c. The more expensive Newton R3 1000W uses Nippon Chemi Con rated 400v 270uF @ 105c. This is obviously how they cut some costs for the end customer in the Tesla R2.  We noticed that ripple filtering was handled by some Nippon Chemi Con electrolytic and Teapo Capacitors. All secondary capacitors are rated to 105c.
