As we can see, the 700W model has a single 12V rail which is able to deliver up to 660W (55A) of power. 3.3V rail is able to give us 25A and 5V rail 20A. There’s a limit of 150W which can be drawn together from 3.3V and 5V lines. Also you can draw the maximum of 700W from all rails together.
There is a 120mm black fan cooling the GX-lite series power supplies. The fan was nearly unaudible in operation, and this was a fact no matter how hard we stressed our sample unit. Also, we did not see the PSU getting hot during our tests – thanks to the marvellous efficiency rating of the GX-lite series.
The whole backside of the PSU is covered in mesh to improve and to minimize the impact in airflow.
The power cord connector and main power switch are located in the back of the unit. Like every power supply available on market, the GX-Lite series use the typical power cable connector. Personally, I like having the main power switch in my power supply because most (if not all) power supplies available on market still consume some power when in standby mode. To minimize your electricity bill I recommend you shutting down your PSU from the main switch if you intend to leave your computer shut down for extended periods.
