Offering clean power efficiently and silently, Fractal Design Newton R3 Series power supply units (PSUs) are the ultimate choice for demanding high-end gaming computers and ultra-quiet media PCs.
The visual appearance of Newton R3 Series PSUs is proof of Fractal Design's commitment to providing innovative computer components infused with stylish, elegant, contemporary Scandinavian design.
Quiet, Cool, Efficient
Pros: This is a very quiet PSU due to the fact that it is passively cooled. The fan only activates when it reaches a certain thermal threshold. I still haven't had it activate for me, so I can't tell if it will be loud under load or not. The cables were long enough in my Fractal Design Define R4 to reach around the back of the motherboard plate and then around the side to plug into the motherboard.
Cons: The manual for this PSU is a joke (but then again, what is there to say about it). I would have liked to have ALL of the cables removable, so they could be threaded throughout the case easier, specifically the 20+4 pin main connector, which was difficult to route due to the large end.
Other Thoughts: Cons aside, I actually love this PSU. Time will tell as I begin to OC or add components if a load brings the volume up to a level I have issue with.
