Coolermaster iGreen Power 430w



The very first thing I noticed about the iGreen 430w was the inclusion of only one PCI-E connector. This makes perfect sense, as a 430w power supply isn't really capable of powering a mid/high end SLI or Crossfire system. For those of us who require 2xPCI-E connectors, the 500w and 600w should cater for your needs.

Coolermaster have sleeved every cable right to the end in a black mesh sleeving. The quality of the sleeving is exceptional with the ends of each connector being zip-tied and shrink wrapped to prevent the sleeving from coming loose or fraying.

It's also nice to see that Coolermaster have used 'Easy Grip' molex connectors which should make the removal of the connectors from devices easier.

The ATX connector on the iGreen is native 24-pin. However, as you can see above, a small block of 4 connectors can be broken off to switch the connector to 20-pin, and thus make it compatible with older motherboards.

Unfortunately the P4-12v motherboard connector is only 4-pin and therefore not EPS12v (8-pin) compatible. If your motherboard requires an 8-pin connector, one can be purchased at an online retailer for a very small cost.
