The first thing to hit you is the fact that the HALE90 750W power supply is finished with white paint. It wouldn’t be our first choice, but it certainly stands out in the crowded marketplace. We would love to hear your views on this colour scheme in the comments section or on the forums.
A large 140mm fan takes centerstage, a rather dramatic design, particularly when set behind the black grill. We aren’t sure that a large portion of the enthusiast community will be happy with a white power supply as it won’t match many systems, but after living with it for a few weeks we actually ended up liking it.
The unit is fully vented at the rear to allow for a high level of heat dissipation when under load.
The HALE90 750W is not a fully modular design with core cabling emitting from the left side of the chassis.
Connectivity support is very good with 4 PCI-Express cables available, it is a shame they weren’t all 6+2 pin, but for this power range it is perfectly acceptable. There are seven molex and eight SATA connectors, not the best we have seen for a 750W power supply, but again more than enough for most people.
The NZXT HALE90 750W is closely matched to quality models in the same power output currently available on the market. It has a 12V capability of up to 62A which is 99% of the units total capacity. The minor rails are limited to around 120W at peak which while good, isn’t the best we have seen.
The cabling is fully sleeved into the chassis and there is an additional rubber grommet on the naked metal for added protection.
