As with all power supplies that pass through Overclock3D, I'll be taking a look inside the PSL-6850P. By doing this I should be able to get a good idea of the overall build quality of the unit and how it is likely to perform in our tests.
The unit did feel quite jam packed, and I was disappointed to see the bulk of cables entering the unit obscuring a large portion of the grill at the front of the unit, possibly causing unnecessary heat issues. This issue could have been improved by bunching the cables together using cable ties, but ultimately the layout of the PCB could do with re-working.
Model: Sanyo Denki SanAce40
Dimensions: 40mm x 40mm x 28mm
Air Flow: 16.8cfm
Model: Delta EFB0812SHF
Dimensions: 80 x 80 x 32mm
Air Flow: 54.95cfm
With both fans rated at an ear piercingly loud 44 - 45dba, the PSL-6850P certainly hasn't been designed with the silent PC in mind. Thankfully both of these fans are kept as silent as possible when the unit is idle by the integrated fan controller.
