Final testing and Conclusion

5V Rail:

We had a stable 5V rail all through the testing, it went up with 0.01V at full load though.

12V Rail:

The 12V rail had some flickering between 12.29 and 12.30V  under load. This is all within the specifications though.

Watt usage:

After running this unit for a few hours we took some results, at idle it manages to pull 114W while at full it ran at 144W with a max usage of 343Watts. Pretty decent numbers compared to other units we have reviewed.

Conclusion:

This unit is very silent, it competes with the Enermax cpu that we reviewed earlier in noise and also in stability and rail stability. The unit is well packed and I feel that Nexus have managed to make another product that well meets the demands I require from Nexus products.

The biggest con so far is the availability, I have not been able to find this specific cpu in Sweden yet although I managed to find an older version. Overall I am very happy with the unit and will give it our recommendations for a silent psu that still performs extremely well.

Pros:
+ Silent
+ Good performance
+ Well packed
+ Sleeved

Cons:
-
Availability
