FSP Hydro X 650 Power Supply Review

AS7V5980

The FSP box artwork is almost identical to the Hydro G series unit we tested back in December 2015. The artwork is dark, with gold accenting on the edges and a photograph of the unit in the center. Some of the key selling points are listed along the bottom – such as 80 Plus Gold Certification, the DC to DC design and Japanese Caps.

The rear of the box highlights a features list, a photograph of the power supply, alongside some images and details of the internal design.

Inside the box, a little fold out user manual, mounting screws, and a regional specific power cable. The power supply is very poorly protected which is surprising, it is only wrapped in a plastic bag – with no bubble wrap or Styrofoam padding. Our unit actually had a couple of small marks on the paint due to it rubbing against the cardboard during transit. This is a little disappointing to see.

The quality of the cabling is very good – they are all flat ribbon style, except the main ATX cable which is sleeved.

Above, a breakdown of the cable configuration, as well as the lengths. The X 650 has support for single and dual graphics cards configurations with 4 x PCIE 6+2 pin cables.
