Corsair knows their stuff when it comes to performance memory, but how about power supplies? Despite the fact that they are new to the PSU market, they prove that they are not newbies. After taking a look at their HX620W, we walk away impressed.
Before we move into an inspection of the supply, here you can see just how thick the included stryofoam protector is. It would take a huge drop in order to receive this supply in bad shape.
One thing you will notice is the size. It’s small… perfect for any case. The entire chassis is pure black with the only other color being the various stickers.
According to the rating sticker, this power supply really packs a punch. 18a on each rail is sure to keep a stable rig.
The back of the supply is nothing we haven’t seen before. Besides the obvious, the entire back utilizes a mesh design to allow hot air release.
Both the left and right sides are clean except for the product sticker.
The only cables built straight into the power supply, understandably, are the motherboard connectors. They are kept tied together with a plastic cable which can easily be removed. As you can see, these select cables are kept in black sleeving.
You will have a total of 5 general ports to deal with, which will allow for all of the connections except for the PCI-E. Those two ports are kept directly above the other five.
On the bottom of the supply we can see a huge 120mm fan, which sucks air from the inside of your case and directs it out the meshed back.
