This case came preinstalled with a 500w PSU. This is refreshing, because a lot of cases nowadays either come with a weak PSU, or none at all. Hereís a shot of the PSU label.
As you can see, the MGE500WP has 2 12v rails. This seems nice, but if you notice both have a low number of amps. If I was going to get 26a from 12v rails, I think I might rather have 1 rail with 26a, then 2 with much less. To be honest, for most systems, this PSU would be more than adequate.
The PSU is also modular, meaning that the cables can be detached, exchanged, etc. Too many cables for your case? Just detach the lines you arent using. Hereís a shot of what I mean.
The PSU itself is cooled by 2 fans (80mm and 92mm). Both fans are thermally controlled, and also sport blue leds in theme with the rest of the case.
After I got the whole thing up and running and got the OS installed, I did some testing of the PSU itself (Yes, Iím skipping ahead in time here. Author's prerogative). I took readings both when the system was idle, and when it had a full load. I tested the 3.3v, 5v, and 12v rails. Hereís the results:
The 3.3v rails were 3.33v idle, and 3.33v with a full load.
The 5v rails were 5.01v idle, and 4.95v with a full load.
The 12v rails were 11.95v idle, and 11.92v with a full load.
Overall, the PSU does a decent job of sustaining the load while the system is being taxed. We now restore you to your previously running timeline.
