FSP Aurum PT 1000W PSU Review

The FSP Aurum PT 1000W is very spartan looking – a simple two tone design, which I personally like. Less is often more, right? The colour banding around the fan grill may look silver, but we would assume it is meant to signify the ‘Platinum’ 80 Plus rating.

More importantly, the ‘Granite Touch’ finish passed our ‘screwdriver’ test without a problem. This involves running the head of a Philips head driver down the side of the chassis with light to medium force. After all, how many times have you accidentally connected with a power supply during a system build?
The company logo is clearly visible in the center of the grill, above the fan inside. There is an embossed ‘FSP’ barely visible on each side panel.
The modular panel takes up the full side of the chassis. They are well labelled and pretty much what we would consider fool proof. In case you are wondering, the PCIe cables will not plug into the CPU power headers, they are physically incompatible. The little white header is the ‘E-Sync’ connector.
Flip the power supply around 180 degrees and we can see a power connector, power switch and venting. You may notice that FSP have opted for ‘arrow’ style ventilation cut outs on this panel. They claim these shapes deliver ‘aerodynamics that improve air extraction’.
