Arctic Cooling Fusion 550R PSU revealed

Cooling specialist Arctic Cooling introduced its first power supply, the Fusion 550R. This 550W model was created in cooperation with Seasonic and should be rather silent. One of the special things about this PSU is that a quiet 80mm fan is mounted externally, this should resulst in a lower noise level.
The new 550 Watt PSU follows the default ATX-Form-Factor and thus will fit into every ATX PC-Case. It fulfils the ATX 2.2 specifications and can offer a continuous power of 500 Watt - enough for every Highend System. Equipped with two 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe connectors the PSU is ideal for powering a Crossfire- or SLi-setup.

High Efficiency = Less Power Loss = Quiet Cooling
With an efficiency of at least 81 to 86%, less heat is generated inside the PSU. As a result of this a single 80-mm-fan is enough to cool the PSU. The rubber-mounted fan is spinning in a range between 700 and 2000 RPM making it virtually silent. Additionally to this the PSU comes along with two external fan-connectors giving the possibility to control the case ventilation based on load and temperature and thus lowers the noise level of the complete system to an absolute minimum.

Save and stable PSU
With a PFC-factor of 99 % and two separated 12-volt-rails, which are supporting each other if necessary the Arctic Fusion 550R is a very save PSU, that manages to come along with highest demands. The overload, overvoltage and short-circuit protection safeguards the hardware as well as the user from damage.


The Arctic Cooling Fusion 550R power supply will be available by mid-September for $94.95 and 59.95EUR (excl. VAT).
