Raidmax Sagitta Gaming Case Review - Included Raidmax Power Supply
(Page 5 of 6 )
Raidmax included a 450W power supply with the Sagitta. The power supply has a 24 pin connector for the motherboard, which can release the last 4 pins so that it will also fit on motherboards that require 20-pin power. It also has a 12v connector to power the CPU and four 4-pin connectors.
Connect the front panel lights, the side-panel fan/light, and the exhaust fan will use up at least one of your 4-pin connectors, since you can daisy chain most of them. This leaves you with three power connectors for all your drives and a front intake fan (if you buy one). It has one SATA connector, and you could go out and buy a converter if you have more than one SATA drive. Obviously, this power supply is will not be sufficient for a power user with many drives.
Using a multimeter, I saw the voltages wobble a bit. They fluctuated when sitting at idle. However, all the rails provided power very close to their specifications. Under load and idle, they stayed within safe ranges. It performed well for entry level power. For a high quality PSU that will power many drives with less fluctuation, you'll have to spend at least as much as this entire case costs, so I don't feel this is a point that I can complain about. It is nice to have included power to get a person's system started, and this is sufficient power if you don't have high requirements for it.
One thing I noticed related to the power supply is that the 4-pin connectors of the case and included PSU are hard to work with. They do not plug in as easily as others I have used, so I had to retry plugging them in a couple times. Also, when daisy chaining the case power connectors, I tried unplugging one so I could move things around. This is what happened...
These are the case 4-pin connectors and not the power supply. One of the pins stayed plugged in and came loose from its casing. It was stuck. So, I plugged it back in and tested unplugging the others. All the others unplugged correctly, so only this one got stuck. All of them provided power well despite being a little troublesome. This may have been an irregularity and other cases could have better connectors, but either way, it's only a problem for the few minutes it takes to set the system up, and then it's no longer a bother.
With the case exterior, interior, and PSU examined, let's wrap things up and look at pictures of the case lit up in the dark.
