Power efficiency matters, FSP Group AURUM S series power supply delivers. The Aurum S 600W gives you 87%~90% power efficiency at loads between 20% and 100% complying with 80 PLUS Gold standard. Also, the standby power consumption is less than 0.5W thanks to 2013 ErP standard compliance.
AURUM S Series is constructed with superior engineering, featuring FSP MIA ICTM Technology, AURUM S Series integrated PWM, ZCS PFC, Post SR, double-circuited OVP, and improved power PCB structural density. Plus, Aurum's components are all high quality for great reliability and stability.
Pros: Running somewhat more efficiently. My power draw during memtest has dropped from 212 watts with my Antec PS to 195 watts with the FSP, desktop and video stress tests showed similar improvements.
Cons: Too many connectors makes it hard to get it all in the case. Looks like a cheap plastic toy made for idiot boys. It took forever to get here!
Other Thoughts: I guess the reason they made it look like this and spent way too much on sleek packaging is that they will do whatever it takes to make money. I really just needed a more efficient PS. If newegg customers demanded function over form; the prices would drop and actual quality would increase. Trying to make it do everything for everybody means it won't do anything outstanding. FSP succeeds in mediocrity -- yawn.
