    The back of the power supply features lots of holes to let the hot air out and a fairly big red power button which lights up when your system is turned on. By the way, one of the things I discovered while checking out the manual is that the +5VSB voltage rail features a sustained 3A output, allowing you to charge USB devices even when your system isn't running.



    One big 140mm fan cools the Toughpower 1000W PSU. According to the specs this fan produces only 16dBA at 1300RPM but when it spins faster (max 2300RPM) this will obviously increase.
