FSP Epsilon 700w ATX PSU

The first thing that strikes you about the Epsilon 700w is its finish. Painted in metallic blue, the Epsilon sparkles under bright lights and makes me think what a great companion it would be for Coolermaster's Wavemaster Blue case which has a very similar finish. The overall paint job is very good, but does not carry quite the same depth and shine of a cars bodywork.
Probably one of the smallest power supplies I've ever reviewed at 140x150x86mm, (LxWxD) I was surprised that FSP managed to fit such a powerful unit into such a small package. However, despite it's small size the Epsilon did feel quite heavy, buy maybe not as heavy as some of the other small-sized atx units that I've reviewed in the past.
FSP have chosen to cool the unit with a single 120mm fan, which is covered by a silver fan grill. Many manufacturers choose this method of cooling, as it is much quieter and often more effective than using a smaller 80mm fan.
