FSP debuts Hydro X power supply units

About two months after FSP announced its new Hydro line of power supply units, the Taiwanese company is back with an updated line called Hydro X. The new PSUs are improved versions of the Hydro power supplies, which were released back in March. While the original Hydro PSUs come with 80 Plus Bronze efficiency, the new Hydro X take this same efficiency level to 80 Plus Gold. In addition to this the new Hydro X PSUs all use premium-class components and employ Japanese capacitors for improved reliability and longevity.

The new Hydro X PSUs by FSP are fully compatible with the latest Intel Skylake processors and use a custom DC-DC design with solid capacitors for efficiency, voltage stability and high system compatibility. The PSUs use an internal thermal sensor that keeps track of the PSU temperature and automatically adjusts the speed of the 120 mm cooling fan all Hydro X PSUs come with. The units also have tough voltage regulation that ensures the output voltage stays within a 1 per cent range under any load. A bespoke variable resistor design better controls the balance point of the +12V rail for tight regulation. Moreover the Hydro X PSUs come with an Eco-Minion controller that improves the performance of the +5Vsb rail when a computer that uses one of these PSUs is turned off. Unfortunately the new Hydro X PSUs are a bit weaker than their Hydro companions – the new line comes with PSUs that output 450W, 550W and 650W of power.

The new Hydro X line will be available by the end of this month. The PSUs will sell for USD 89.99 (EUR 79.99) for the 450W model, USD 99.99 (EUR 89.99) for the 550W model and USD 109.99 (EUR 99.99) for the 650W model.
