Conclusions

The 650W Akasa Power+ power supply is a high quality unit that delivers very solid DC outputs with minimal AC noise.  The unit is much heavier than most other power supplies with a similar output capacity.  Quad +12V rails, dual PCI-e connectors and a wealth of other connectors provide good compatibility and flexibility.  The Power+ is one of Akasa’s Performance Series power supplies and as such doesn’t offer the higher efficiency and quiet operation that some of the other Akasa units do.  If solid, reliable outputs are of primary interest and you can tolerate a little extra noise, then the Akasa Power+ 650W PSU is highly recommended.

 

The Akasa Power+ AK-P650FH power supply currently sells for $159.99 USD.
