A Detailed Look
ABS Tagan ITZ Series 1300W Power Supply Review - Cases and Cooling  1

The ABS Tagan ITZ1300 power supply enclosure has a brilliant blue electroplate finish, which really adds some bling to this power supply but is also easily scratched, so be careful when installing it.  The enclosure is 175mm (6-7/8”) deep and uses two 80mm fans in a push pull arrangement for cooling.

The speed of both fans is automatically controlled by the internal component temperature (speeds up as the combined load and temperature increases).  The front 80mm x 25mm fan is made by GlobeFan (S0802512HD) while the smaller 80mm x 15mm rear fan is made by Top Motor (DF128015BU).

As you would expect, the ITZ1300 power supply has a full assortment of cables and connectors, which are hard-wired into the chassis.  The cables are covered with braided plastic mesh sleeving all the way to the end connectors and measure approximately 20” to 22” long.  The six PCI-E connectors are color coded to help evenly distribute power between multiple cards.  Only the cables with blue and orange connectors are labeled PCI-E while the other two six pin connectors (black) are intended for use with Physics cards (the 6-pin PCI-E connectors are the same).
